As some of you may know, I am officially single this year for Valentine’s Day. I’ve been so busy sorting out my life after a (mostly) rubbish 2015 that I hadn’t really stopped to notice the date; but now it’s looming and I can’t really avoid it. Despite being single now and having had some bad experiences, I don’t hate the notion of love at all. I’m not bitter! In fact, I embrace it, and I think that Valentine’s Day is a great time to enjoy when you have a partner.
I turned 25 a few weeks ago and to celebrate, my amazing boyfriend Dougie whisked me away. We started this tradition last year – he took me to the wonderful, unique Church Spa as a surprise, and I took him for a weekend of activities down in London. This year, he seriously upped his game and took me away to Italy, and I mean it when I say that I had NO IDEA where we were going until we got to the airport. Nice work, but even nicer when we actually got there and I was stunned. Wow, just wow!
