In life, we don’t get everything we want. It took a really long time for me to realize that. But reading my friend’s (gyebbie) chictopia entry on Valentine’s day, I realized we don’t need everything we want. Especially, now that I’ve realized that what I wanted a really really long time ago isn’t exactly what I needed…and that if I did get it, I’d totally end up hurling.
I didn’t get v-day flowers for the first time in ages. I didn’t get anything but then I figured out that it’s really just about love. as cheesy as that sounds.
On the eve of love day, me and a bunch of my friends headed out to celebrate the birthday of our super almost too gorgeous friend, Carissa! The night was most definitely for the books.
It was just the love and wake-up call I needed : I had my Aces, Kings, Queen, Jacks, and Tens. I won. And really, there’s nothing better than getting a Royal Flush in life. Good thing I came with all my gear, my brand’s signature piece : the bondage skirt! paired with this gray rayon wrap around number I draped that afternoon all spiced up by a black and gold bolero. All topped with what I call SEX hair. The perfect ensemble for battle.
There was no reason to be a bitter single girl cliche on Valentine’s after all because being with the girls and getting together to celebrate all the best things in life was enough. Gabbie was right after all.

The love did not stop. After my friends stayed over, I spent vday with my entire family and started a new tradition – our own version of thanksgiving on vday..
