So on Val’s day, I bought a card for myself from Yobbings (they have the most amazing cards but can someone tell them to make different sizes so that those of us who like to elaborate can have more room for that? 😂🤣😂) to give myself some love. To anyone out there who might need some reassurance to believe in themselves, this is for you.
