I was telling one of my friend’s today at our weekly morning get together (this is 5:30 AM) that Valentines in the country where I grew up is not only about love and romantic relationships. Valentines for me has always been a day to celebrate our dearest and closest friends and in addition our loved ones. On Valentine’s I close my eyes and feel an immense gratitude for my ride or die, partners in crime and accomplices in life. There is something magical that happens when you know that no matter the distance your besties -are like fairy tales- they have been there since Once Upon a Time and they will be there until Forever After, if you manage to behave. Happy Valentine’s.
