I know, I know, Valentine's Day is traditionally a day of romance, but it's also a day of love, and love doesn't have to only be romantic.

So, whether you're a single pringle or not, spending some part of this special day appreciating or sharing that love with your best friends can be a perfect Valentine's Day treat.

1. Have a spa day (or night).

Pamper yourself (and your gals)!!! There's no day like Valentine's Day to paint your nails, fix your hair and feel good in some PJs with your besties.

2. Share the love with some sweet treats!

Giphy

Buy your besties some chocolate, go out and get some Cook Out milkshakes, and just get something that you think is a nice sweet treat for this day of love!

3. Send a few candy-grams.

Giphy

I don’t know about you, but receiving a candy gram from my bestie would probably be just about the highlight of my Valentine’s Day, so treat yourself and your friends to some sweet treats!

4. Go the movies!

Giphy

Go see a movie! Maybe it’s one that you really want to see, or maybe it’s something random that you just want to give a try. Either way, grab some popcorn and treat yourself to a movie night!

5. Do schoolwork together.

Giphy

OK, so I recognize that everyone is busy, and Valentine's Day might be just the same in terms of how much homework you might have to do. That being said, grab a couple of bestie, and have a group homework night or a group study session. Just being together and getting stuff done is always fun.

6. Go to dinner together.

Giphy

Food is always a good time, so if nothing else, go grab dinner! It's a good way to find the time to get together, and can be used as a way to start some good conversations with friends you might not have seen in a while.

7. Have a self-care night!

Giphy

We talked about this a little already, but taking care of yourself can be the perfect way to spend this special day with your special friends. Paint your nails and put on a face mask. Don't be afraid to have deep conversations with your friends, or to talk about things you might have been holding in. Take care of yourself, and be there for your friends so they can do the same.

8. Go to something you all enjoy together.

Giphy

Concerts? Pottery classes? Painting classes? The movies? Finding something you and your best friends all enjoy can be the perfect way to have a great time on Valentine's Day.

9. Have a photoshoot.

Giphy

Note: don't follow the above GIF when having said photoshoot. On another note, if you like taking cute photos, then dress up cute, find a cute location, and grab your camera (or phone). Taking cute pictures can be a fun way to just be around the people you hold near and dear.

10. Dance the night away!

Giphy

Grab your best friends, and dance the night away! Enjoy each others company, and have a good time. Sometimes just having fun with each other, not even doing anything extensive, is the perfect way to show your besties how much you love them.

Show your BFFs a little love this Valentine's Day!

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Our First Bundle Of Joy, COMING SOON!

After years of trying, hoping, praying, and wishing, we finally have a baby on the way!

According to Larry Barretto, "Babies are bits of star-dust blown from the hand of God. Lucky is the woman who knows the pangs of birth for she has held a star."

Things would be simple if we, as women, could reach into the heavens and pluck our perfect little star ourselves. However, that is not how God intended us to bring our bundles of joy into the world. Instead, he chose the female body as a safe haven for our stars. It is here that they grow brighter and brighter until they burst with light.

This is a new beginning that many women crave. We swoon when we hear the first heartbeat. We scream with joy when the first kick has us reaching for the nearest object. We glow as we watch our bellies get bigger and bigger, knowing that with each passing day, we get closer and closer to holding our greatest joy in life.

What happens when those moments never come though? What happens when you have done everything right, but still, no star? What do you do when every single negative test begins to break down your spirit?

These are the questions that emerge when reality settles in and you realize, what if you cannot get pregnant?

Your heart starts to sink as the days, weeks, months, and years go by. With every failed pregnancy test, you lose a piece of your heart. What used to feel like passionate love with your partner, now feels like a forced five minutes whenever your phone alerts you that it is time to try again. The future, full of sleepless nights, diaper changing, and endless unforgettable milestones, now seems distant and bleak.

Now imagine feeling that for two years. Two years of heartbreak. Two years of feeling like you are not capable. Two years of reaching for something that seemed impossible. Two years of never-ending sadness.

These past two years have been difficult to endure. Every morning would begin with a prayer that God would somehow bless us with our own star. Every night ended with pleas to take away the sadness that dwelled within our hearts.

For a moment, we felt unheard. We felt that there would always be an empty space in our lives that only our very own child could fill. These feelings were almost enough to make us give up. Truthfully, maybe we were giving up. Maybe, if this test turned out to be negative like the rest of them, we would call it quits and fill the void with objects that would never amount to the joy a child would have brought us.

It was on January 25, 2019 that giving up seemed like a good idea. God had decided that motherhood would have to come in some other form or fashion. It was this decision that we were ready to accept.

As we watched one line form to give us the answer we already expected, we vowed to be done with it. Our hearts broke for the last time. Just as we began to burn all the memories we had formed in our heads, something started to appear on the stick. It was faint and almost unbelievable, but it was there.

A second line.

A second line giving us hope and allowing our hearts to flutter with joy for a moment. As the line became clearer and more distinct, hope turned into a blissful reality and the fluttering was now masked by the loud heartbeat of a woman who could now see herself having her very own star.

Hundreds of miles away was my very own heartbeat, thumping loud and clear for all to hear THAT I AM GOING TO BE AN AUNT!

That is right, after two years of trying, my sister, Harley, is finally expecting her very first baby in September!

Harley and Travis are going to be absolutely wonderful parents and I am so excited to watch them grow as a couple and as a family! Their experience has shown me the importance of perseverance and never giving up on something that means the world to you. I am so thankful that my sister is such a headstrong woman who did not give up because now I can look forward to spoiling my first niece or nephew this year!

To all of you woman who are on a similar journey, do not give up. It is true that some things are not meant to be, but there is always a way and that is something you should never forget. A mother's love is strong and true no matter how it is established.

To you, Harley, I love you and I thank God every day for giving you the blessing you have been asking for!
