Valentines For Single Girls
Hey Girl! Let’s face it, most of our hitched friends probably think that we spend Valentine’s Day self loathing over a bucket of ice cream while we watch The Notebook. WRONG! Well at least without the self loathing part. I actually love being single. That doesn’t mean I have anything against relationships, I just genuinely like my freedom.
And at this point in my life, my couch, ice cream and The Notebook does not sound like a sad song, it sounds like a party I want to be invited to!
There is absolutely no rule book that says Valentine’s Day is for couples only so let’s get our self love on with the perfect night in for the single girl!
