VALENTINE'S DAY.

Valentine's Day, also known as Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine,[1] is a celebration observed on February 14 each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it is not a public holiday in most of them.

Every so often (okay frequently) I am surprised at the extent of change one year can produce. Last Valentine's Day was here and here (which was sent by one of by best friends), while the year before was spent like this. I have always been an supporter of this romantic day, yet I was beginning to accept that I would forever spend it alone. Good things come to those who work hard? I now have the best man to share the holiday with; although he is currently at work. We can't always have it all, something I have realized in the past eight months. Compromise is a key ingredient to a lasting relationship and when you finally find the missing piece of your puzzle, it becomes (fairly) easy.
I hope everyone has the best Valentine's Day ever; do your best to not to be bitter if you are single. There are so many reasons to be happy!

UTOPIAN.



Adj: modeled on or aiming for a state in which everything is perfect; idealistic.
  As I sat at a table amongst seven other adults, all over the age of fifty, a feeling of envy took over. They would probably never feel the strain social media can have on a relationship nowadays. Of course they all own cell phones, they try to remain hip with facebook, but ultimately their phone is not a priority. They can go out to dinner without feeling the need to update any apps; I am a huge hypocrite as I was attached to my iPhone for a good portion of that evening.

GIRLS.

TV series: Girls is an American television series that began airing on HBO on April 15, 2012. Created by and starring Lena Dunham, Girls is a comedy-drama that follows a close group of twenty-somethings as they chart their lives in New York City.

I have become quite the disgrace to my blog. It is eighteen days into the new year and until now I have not sat down to write. I am sure the most common assumption in regards to me being MIA would be my changed single status. Although I admit that my Friday nights are no longer spent home alone watching Julia Roberts movies, the man in my life is not (completely) to blame.
