I haven’t really addressed Valentine’s Day as it loomed in the back of my mind this week, though I’ve noticed quite a few of my blogs I follow have, and I’ve read them all with interest, and commented on quite a few as well.

But why haven’t I addressed it yet?

Because it doesn’t feel that significant, or sad, or a reminder that I’m single.

It just feels like another day, and that actually feels pretty damn amazing…that it doesn‘t feel like a downer of a day.

So, rather than take this weekend as a time to hole up and watch chick flicks alone, I opted to celebrate singledom with a few wonderful ladies. We got dressed up, we went to a fancy restaurant in Boston, we ordered two bottles of wine (for four women, but who’s counting…), and we had a delicious meal, lots of laughs, and some fun people-watching at one of our favorite bars across the street. My BSF sums it up nicely on her blog (ahem, thank you for finally posting something my friend!).

We treated ourselves, we celebrated singledom, and we had a blast. Amazing. Who needs a man when you have such wonderful friends? I feel loved by my friends and family, and sometimes, that’s all you really need to realize that this is the life worth living. To the fullest.

And, to all of my friends (blog and real!) and family that are celebrating Valentine’s Day with that special someone, keep these words in mind: “We only got 86 400 seconds in a day to turn it all around or throw it all away, we gotta tell ’em that we love ’em while we got the chance to say, gotta live like we’re dying.”

Live it, love it, no regrets. XO!
