It’s the “love” month! Let me tell you about Valentine’s Day. I haven’t had a Valentine in probably 2 or 3 years. When you have a boo, it can be great! And when you don’t have a boo, it can STILL be great! I know some amazing ladies who are hosting events in the DMV area and I want to give my single ladies some options in preparation for the proclaimed, “National Day of Love.” But let’s be clear, everyday, if you don’t love anybody else, or have someone who tells you they love you, you love on you! Dress up, hit the town, and meet some new people! They say 2018 is the year of the ring!! LOL……I mean…believe it and receive it!
