in finland the valentine's day is actually called friend's day. i must say that i like it this way more. im thankful for every single friend i have in my life. those that are near, far and not here anymore. they surely deserve a celebration day. thank you for being who you are. ♥

hope everyone has a nice sunday. im curing my flu with some tea and cookies.

in Slovenia St. Valentine marks the beginning of spring, when plants and flowers start to grow.
and must say that this is the only way i like this so-called holiday. ;)
and happy friend day to you too!

that is so cute! friend's day. valentine's in the west is pretty gross but if you stay away from places like walmart, you'll be okay. i just enjoy the time with my boy.

happy friend's day!
