So truth be told, Valentine's Day hasn't always been one of my favorite days of the year. It has either gone one of two ways... 1) wasn't dating anyone at the time OR 2) the guy I was dating at the time just had zero clue. -- probably why things didn't work out, ha! Needless to say over the years I tended to overlook this holiday, aside from the awesome selection of chocolate candies -- really the only purchase I make in relation to Valentine's Day during the month of February.
As I've gotten older though, and as the holiday has progressed, I've realized Valentine's Day isn't just about celebrating with your significant other. Yes, I am sure that's very special. BUT there are plenty of people in our lives other than our significant other that we should celebrate the day of love with. I mean I truly treasure the friendships I have and love all of my friends very dearly.
So why not celebrate Valentine's Day with some of my fave gal pals at a fun Galentine's Day Brunch?! We can lavish ourselves with gifts that we know make us happy, enjoy a delicious meal, toast with some bottomless mimosas and gab about the guys we wish we were dating. It's a win win in my book. #signmeup
