Happy Galentine’s Day!
Today is the day to celebrate all of the wonderful women in your life, whether you’re celebrating your mom, your sister, your closest girlfriends, or yourself! I’m always inspired by the strong women in my life: my mom is my rock, and while I don’t have any sisters, she more than made up for it. I also am fortunate to have an amazing tribe of women around me: friends, aunts, cousins, and extended family that inspire me to be strong, courageous, brave, and passionate in whatever it is that I choose to do.
I hope you also have incredible women like them in your life to lift you up. I think it’s important, especially in hard times, to surround yourself with inspiring people. I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs, and I am grateful to be encouraged by these women.
Enough of the sap, and now onto how best to celebrate them! I know I just shared a gift guide to celebrating yourself or the women in your lives, but some of my favorite memories are those created through experiences. A beautiful meal, great conversation, many laughs, and maybe a sweet treat or two are the times I cherish the most. And while presents are special, memories are forever.
I recently hosted a few close friends for brunch. The theme was Galentine’s Day, so I popped over to Target to grab cute pieces for table decor, and whipped up a few special items for us to enjoy over conversation. We finished the meal off with sweet treats, and because we all met through blogging, lots of photos were taken of the day.
Whether you have time to whip up a beautiful brunch this weekend, or you’re just looking for an idea to spend an hour or two with a gal pal, I hope these ideas help you celebrate!
