Ready to celebrate the female friendships in your life? That is what Galentine’s Day is all about!
What is Galentine’s Day, you ask? It was coined from the popular TV show Parks and Recreation when character Leslie Knope brings together her ladyfriends on February 13. She intentionally chooses this date before Valentine’s day so that the women in her life don’t feel guilty about leaving behind the husbands and boyfriends at home to “just come and kick it, breakfast-style” and to celebrate the female friendships in our lives.
It’s basically one of my favorite holidays of the year. Not to mention a great excuse to get together with your BFF and squad to throw a fun party together.
This year was extra special because I got to celebrate it in collaboration with local fashion and lifestyle bloggers from across the Twin Cities. The way that photography introduced me to a community of incredible, ambitious women in Minneapolis and Saint Paul has been one of the biggest blessings of running this business. The gals I got to meet up with this weekend are no exception. They came dressed to impress and are total boss babes who share their hearts online in an effort to build up confidence in women all over the world. I’m so honored to be a small role in helping them spread that mission even further through these photographs.
Having celebrated this tradition for a few years now, here are our tips to make it a success.
At the end of the day though, simply have fun enjoying each other’s company! We get so busy in life that the fact you are dedicating time to being intentional with the women in your life is a huge win. You go, girl!
