    Hi Holly, I read this post with interest. One of my best {single} friends said she cuddled up with some takeout & Downton Abbey & it was the best Valentine's Day of her life. Ha ha. I saw you at BYB & I'm popping by your great blog to say "hello". It was really nice to meet you & I hope to see you again soon.

    Warmly, Michelle
    Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust.
