Valentine’s Day is this week and who does not love Valentine’s Day? You might get candy and a stuffed animal from a friend, a lovely bouquet of roses from your boyfriend or girlfriend, or you could surprise your mom with flowers. Whichever way, Valentine’s Day is for everyone and it does not matter if you are single, in a relationship, or married: you can still enjoy Valentine’s Day. A lot of people just go out to dinner for Valentine’s Day, which is nice. You get to enjoy a night of not worrying about homework (as long as you get it done before the dinner) and stress. There are many amazing places to go to dinner in Lynchburg and I thought it would be nice to list fourteen places to take your girlfriend, boyfriend, or friend to dinner in Lynchburg.  So here we go. P.S., these are not in order from first to last. It is just a list of places that I like.

Relationships are never easy. You have situations where you want to cry, smile, or be angry. There are times where you want to have time away from your significant other and other times, you want them to hold you close. There are always many ups and downs to a relationship, but if you love each other, you end up making things workout in the end. I’ve been in a relationship with my man for five years now, and it has truly been a journey of plenty of laughing, crying, endless memories, and tons of love. But even in our relationship, things have never been easy. We have taken one break when we have been together, but not long after being apart, we came back together, and it seems like nothing ever happened. Since being in a long-term relationship, I have learned many key things to a successful relationship.

After my fifth grade graduation, I went home (following shopping at Target) and cried. I had made so many friends at my elementary school and I did not want to start middle school the next year. At the time, Brosville Elementary was my happy place, full of friends and teachers that made me happy. I have always been so sentimental about things ending that my parents would purposely plan exciting things for me at the end of the school year, like fishing trips, just so I could look forward to something else.
