February 13th is Galentine’s Day! Never heard of it?? According to Wikipedia, Galentine’s Day was created almost a decade ago by Amy Poehler’s character, Leslie Knope, on the sitcom, Parks and Rec. It is a day for women to celebrate female friendship and its popularity has exploded in recent years. Several greeting card companies even offer Galentine’s Day cards! My BFF’s are some of my greatest treasures and partying with them the day before Valentine’s Day is a fabulous idea! Sweets and cocktails and your best gals – what could be more fun?
Text every one of your BFF’s and tell them to wear their comfy yoga pants or cutest jammies. Screen your favorite rom-com (see some of mine below), enjoy a terrific cocktail (try a Cupid’s Arrow, left), and spend much-needed time loving on your favorite gals. Make it easy on yourself and serve delicious purchased treats instead of making them. Here is a collection of yummies that can be ordered online and delivered just in time for your special get-together.
Happy Galentine’s Day to all my favorite gals! I would love to hear how y’all plan to celebrate this special day!
