So it’s about Valentine’s Day for most of my East Coasters and will be shortly for the rest of the US as well. I figured I was going to make myself a li’l post for those few who accepted my invitation to be my Tumblr Valentines this year.
Usually, I don’t get into the spirit of Valentine’s Day. I used to be one of those people who felt it was just a Hallmark holiday and that’s partly because one of my ex boyfriends dumped me about two or so days after Valentine’s one year. After we went on a date… that Valentine’s Day. I don’t understand it myself, but it put me in a bit of a sour place for the holiday.
Anyway, this year I’m renewed with the beauty of the holiday. For lovebirds and friends alike, it’s a chance to connect and express your love for the people who matter most in your life. And so I want you, all of you, to know that I love you dearly. You’re some of the best friends I’ve ever had and I love you all to pieces.
While this post is only going to be a few people mentioned (those who asked or said yes when I asked and got onto my page), trust me when I say that these thoughts and feelings go out to all of you. I love you all and I wish you all a happy Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re spending it alone or with loved ones, know that my heart is with you all.
Now, for you all, my Official Tumblr Valentines
Amanda Rae, you are the light of my life and the girl of my dreams. I love you with all of my heart and I hope you have a glorious Valentine’s Day. I know it’s your favorite and I hope it smacks of happy and love. I wish I could be spending it with you, but you just hold onto CarlosPanda and I’ll be with you in spirit. Waiting for the day we get to spend the day in each other’s arms. I love you and happy Valentine’s Day, my little Oyster. <3
Lauren, you have been one of the greatest friends I could ever ask for and I’m so happy to still know and talk to you to this day. Thank you for always helping me to keep my head above water and I only pray I can do the same for you at times. You’re a light on the dark paths and you help me to remember that this world is worth smiling for. With people like you in it, I’m given new hope. I love you and I hope your holiday treats you well. Happy Valentine’s Day, sweetheart. <3
My dear Mandy. You have been one of the best and most amazing people to me since I started my time on Tumblr. You make me smile and laugh all the time and I just love how completely you throw yourself into your favorite ships. It’s so fun and amazing to watch. You’ve always been there for me and for so many others. You’re such a sweetie and I love the shit out of you. I truly do. Happy Valentine’s Day, love. <3
Russell. Fucking Russell. ;D You make me laugh so hard. I am so damn glad we got to talking again. Our friendship is one I definitely didn’t want to lose over non-communication. You make me smile with your random jokes and BOOM moments. And just like with Cherry, you make me want to stay up all night just talking about completely random shit together. And omigod, I can’t believe you’ve got me shipping Robbie Rotten with Sportacus. I don’t even LIKE Lazytown, you boob! XD I love you and your dorky dorkness. And your fantastic art. You’re such an awesome Watson. Happy Valentine’s Day, bitch. ;D <3
Baby girl, Staci. Your very presence on my dash makes me smile and makes my day. You’re such a sweetheart and I’m proud to call you my daughter (even if it’s just on the Internet, but Cherry and I seriously want to officially adopt all of you chil’ens). It makes me so happy when you’re happy and having a good time and I love knowing you’re smiling and just generally… Well, havin’ a good time. I hope your Valentine’s goes awesomely and you fill your heart with love and laughter, not just for this holiday, but for life. Happy Valentine’s Day, baby girl. <3
Tori, you are so amazing and funny. You’ve been one of my favorite people on this site for ages and I just love seeing your posts on my dash. I love getting little messages from you and just knowing you’re around and paying attention. To have you as one of those people I could go to if I really needed it makes me smile and makes each day worth waking up for. I hope your day goes great and you have fun. I love you. Happy Valentine’s Day, hun. <3
And now for my unofficial Valentine’s
These are the people who didn’t ask, or whom I didn’t ask, but I still love
I’m not going to do full paragraphs for this list because it’s rather long and I’m afraid my arms and fingers may fall off. Well, fingers first, then my arms as I attempt to keep typing with my wrist stubs. There’s so many of you and I know not all of you are going to make it to this list. And if you are a follower of mine or someone I follow and I miss you, it doesn’t mean I love you any less. It just means we don’t talk as much, so you didn’t jump to the forefront of my brain like these others did. I love you all and I wish you all the best Valentine’s Days ever. Seriously. You’re all so sweet and loving and I want you all happy this year, and for years to come, okay? <3
To these lovely people, I wish you a sweet Valentine’s Day and a happy Tuesday in general. I love you.
I love you all. And all my followers.
To you all, happy Valentine’s Day. <3
