Bring on Galentine's Day!

Bring on Galentine's Day!

Valentine's Day, the day of love, flowers, and heart-shaped chocolates, is just around the corner. But why should it be all about romantic relationships? If you believe like we do that supporting women and friendships should be celebrated as well, then it's time to embrace Galentine's Day instead! What's Galentine's Day, you ask? Well, it's a day to celebrate the incredible bond between you and those friendships that have been there for you through the good, the bad, and the ugly. Or hear me out...how about celebrating YOU for all the love and care you put into your world? I recall an AH HA moment from years ago that I was gifted from my then seven-year-old daughter when I was "disappointed" I did not receive flowers on Valentine's Day. She said matter of factly, "Why don't you just buy them yourself?!" Ever since then, I have fully embraced this trend, and you can bet in peony season, my house is never without. So, this year, let's put all the pressure aside and have some fun!
