Everyday I see or here something that makes me stop and think, “Hmm, maybe I should watch Parks and Rec.” Today was definitely one of those days. February 13th, my friends, is Galentine’s Day. A Holiday founded by the great Leslie Knope. It’s all about ladies celebrating ladies.What’s better than that? Well… Don’t answer that, but it’s a pretty great concept.
What makes me happy is I’ve been celebrating Galentine’s day for years (maybe not always on the 13th but I’m a big practicer of the concept). My friends are my true loves. Boyfriends (or girlfriends) may come and go but your friends will always be there for you. All my friends get a Valentine every year regardless if they are single, dating, or married. They make my world a better place so why not let them know?
So ladies, take a moment and tell your gal pals just how awesome they are today and just how amazing it is to have them in your life.
Happy Galentine’s Day to you all!
Update: Since I drafted this post I have received some beautiful Galentine’s Day flowers as well as a card with an otter in heart shape glasses (I love otters). I truly have amazing friends and this is why we celebrate Galentine’s Day. But I will stress it’s not about the material things, it’s about the thought and the warm words that were shared. I’m going to go shed some happy tears, now.
