We should take this moment and thank Leslie from Parks and Recreations for this AWESOME day!
“Thank you, Leslie!”
So what does one do for Galentine’s Day?
Here are a few ways you can show your gal friends how much you love them and yourself.
- Go out! It’s that time of year when everyone just wants to stay in with some oversized sweats and a cozy sweater (which I am usually all for, but not today!)Plan a dinner for you and your girlfriends at a fancy restaurant that you have all been wanting to try, followed by a good time out maybe a bar, karaoke or dancing.Plan ahead, as you’ll probably need to get a reservation. If you are the host, bring your friends mini bouquets (or some of our thong roses!) Every girl deserves flowers even if it’s not Valentine’s Day.If you best gals live out of town, schedule a skype date: everyone orders takeout and chats till the sun comes up like a slumber party! (Thank you technology!)
- Send your besties handwritten cards to say how much you love them. With all the texting, facetiming, and snapchatting going on in our lives, it can mean so much more when someone writes you to tell you how much they care. Think about the last card you got from your Grandma or other beloved relative and how warm and happy it made you feel. Research done by Kent State University’s Dr. Steven Toepfer suggests that people who still write letters by hand are happier.
- Volunteer somewhere that motivates girls and women. Check out a few of these charities:
Happy Galentine’s Day!
