A true friend... someone knows all your faults...

...and still loves you!

They're pretty rare so if you come across one - hold on tight.
Valentine's Day is coming up, and what better thank to take the opportunity to tell your loved ones how much they matter to you? Remember: it's not just your significant other and your kids that make your world whole. If you have a wonderful sibling, amazing parents and/or friends that would walk through fire for you (and, hopefully, vice versa) - make sure they know it!

If you'd miss Valentine's - tell them anyway!
No day is the wrong day for some appreciation.

This card isn't a Valentine's.
It's a "just-because-my-life-would-suck-so-much-more-without-you-card" for someone I love dearly, albeit in a very un-romantice way (even if I kep saying I'd be SO in love with her if I DID swing that way, because she's fantastic!) but it could very well be for several other people who move me, care for me, cheer me up and love me even when I'm blue or bitchy. (Sometimes I'm both. Multitaskingskills. I has them.)

That's why this post is dedicated to all of my friends, world wide.
I love you.

Ps. The heart charm was trying to escape when I took this photo - but don't worry! I captured it and we had a ..."heart-to-heart"... ;) There's another heart under the image too, a heart shaped doily - so I promise. They're there, justa bit shy! :P
