With Valentine's day coming up, it's safe to say love is in the air. What about friendship? Friends are just as important in life, if not more, and they aren't granted a special holiday on the calendar. Studies show that happiness is directly related to having fulfilling friendships. Suffice it to say, I'm in love with my best friends! Friends deserve some recognition, too. Don't let them slide to the back burner just because they didn't bring you chocolate on that one random day in February. They give us so much more than that on a daily basis.
