So what is Galentine’s Day? …well it’s only the best day of the year!
Leslie Knope introduces Galentine’s Day on the television show Parks and Recreation as the day before Valentine’s Day, February 13th, a day to celebrate your love for your gal pals and also your love for yourself (see Parks and Recreation, Season 2, Episode 16 –available on Netflix- for more details). I enjoyed a beautiful Galentine’s Day last year with my best girl friends. We took a trip to the Milwaukee Art Museum, enjoyed some delicious Mexican food, had a slumber party in a fancy hotel room, and of course, indulged in plenty of wine and chocolate. That was back when my main concerns were my classes and what flavor of ice cream I should order from room service.
