LIFE.

Noun: the existence of an individual human being or animal

This past Saturday I was out for brunch with a group of good girl friends. Even though we had not seen each other in awhile, it didn't take long for the commentaries regarding my lack of blog posts to begin. I blurted out the obvious, "But I'm not single anymore". In all fairness, the pursuit of my writings was to rant about the trials and tribulations of living in a world of twosomes when I was merely one. That just isn't the case anymore. I won't lie and say that being in a relationship is all smiles and kisses. There have been more than one occasion where I have stopped and literally cried that being single is way easier. But, at the end of the day, two is always better than one.

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.
