VALENTINES WITH MY BEST-FRIENDS | HAPPY VALENTINES DAY 2021


In the past, being a single Blogger on Valentines Day made creating content on your blog and social media slightly more difficult than if you had a partner who you could write about or share the day with. Now, though? There are so many versions of the day where people are starting to acknowledge the importance best-friends (or even friends and colleagues) can have on a person and why that makes it completely reasonable to show your love and gratitude to them on Valentine’s Day.

So, here I am taking this opportunity to show my love for my best-friends…





Lauren, because of her way of making everything into something aesthetically pleasing:

“Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world”

Hillary Clinton

 




For Georgie, for her difficult days at work:

“Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn”

Harriet Beecher-Stowe




Lauren and I on our wild nights out:

“You grow up the day you have the first real laugh at yourself” 

Ethel Barrymore

 



Ellie after she moved with my Godchildren and her Husband to Edinburgh:

“Wherever we are, it is our friends that make our world”

Henry Drummond





For my fellow Blogger and Author; Marty:

“Some souls just understand each other upon meeting”

N. R. Hart

 




Because sometimes Georgie forgets (and she loves Harry Potter):

“Be strong, love and believe in yourself”

Emma Watson




When Lauren moved to Coldstream:

“The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart”

Elisabeth Foley


Because Marty and I have those exact occasional ‘silent’ moments:

“True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable”

David Tyson Gentry

 




Because I’ve called Marty after four on an early morning:

“It’s the friends you can call up at 4am that matter”

Marlene Dietrich

 



For when Ellie forgets this:

“You have what it takes to be a victorious, independent, fearless woman”

Tyra Banks


 




Because Ellie, Lauren, and Georgie are incredibly clever:

“Girls should never be afraid to be smart”

Emma Watson

 



For all four of them:

“True friends are those who really know you but love you anyway”

Edna Buchanan
