It's that time of year again, the day we celebrate love! Cupid is shooting his love arrows and all is right is the world, NOT, lol! Not everyone is living the fairytail Valentines like we see on TV, some of us are single and ok with that.
So I have been single for the last 3 years after being married for 13 years. It was soo hard at first and I just didn't know what to do on the dreaded V-DAY as I called it. Looking back its makes me sad to remember those sad and lonely feelings I felt on that day.
