Now as an adult, I spend my days with hand cramps creating dozens of homemade cards with my five year old who insists on perfected messes. It's not glamorous by any means, but it is rather special and poses a unique view of the holiday as a mother. All of this got me thinking about my single friends; most of whom are dear and amazing individuals. Is there any fun to be had when you're single on Valentine's Day? ...

Yes, plenty of fun, if not more! It seems as though the holiday itself approaches individuals with less pressure than it would someone who's married or in a committed relationship.
Here are just a few things I would do if I was single on Valentine's Day:
- Buy wine, cook food, and binge watch my favorite shows. Well, I might do this anyway, let's be honest. The days of relaxing and binge watching any show seems few and far between, so why not Netflix and chill the heck out of it?
- Treat myself. I am a true believer in treating yourself whether in a relationship or single. If you're single, it seems as if there is no better time for a mani, pedi, and massage to top.
- Galantine's Day Party. There are so many variations to this, but any day spent with my girls is a good day. This doesn't mean singling out friends that are in relationships, it means simply celebrating the love that is shared in sisterhood.
