My favorite Holiday is upon us folks: Galentine’s Day!
What’s Galentine’s Day? Only the best day of the year: Ladies celebrating Ladies! I am not ashamed at the sheer number of times I have watched Parks & Rec and that Leslie Knope is my personal hero.I don’t care that she’s fictional.
The fact this holiday has made its way into our mainstream culture truly brings me joy. So in true Knope fashion, I am here to help you celebrate your lady friends this holiday season! There is something for every kind of gal and friend group. Plus all of these events are also totally cool to go to alone to meet some new gal pals! I hope to see you at a few.
