As yet *another* Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and everyone is rubbing their food babies from all the chocolate/nice dinners they consumed... I feel like we have left a very important demographic go unnoticed.
Excuse me while I break into an elaborate randition of the intro to Lady Marmalade... (Take me away, Patti LaBelle)
HEY SISTA, GO SISTA, SOUL SISTA, FLOW SISTA!!!
Your Galentines are the ones running the show. I mean let’s be honest... before you valentine became your valentine, who was helping you figure out just the right things to text back to him or just the right outfit to wear on your first date?
Romance is wonderful! I love being with my fiancé and he spoils me (to a fault) with his love and affection. There are so many things he says or does that I could never thank him enough for. That man brightens my days and makes me want to be a better person. He truly is my soulmate and I couldn’t be happier to call him my Valentine and my future husband!
With that being said, the bond you share with your girl gang is tooooootally different. What you share with your girls is something that can’t be compared.
They just, get it.
The moods, the quirks, each other’s styles, your likes and dislikes, they got it down. Like when you see that really cute oversized blush pink sweater and think, “oh yes, Lex would look fabulous in that.”
Those friends you don’t even have to utter a word, you just look at each other and you already held a four minute convo in two seconds. That’s the kinda connection I live for!
They go through the crazy life stuff with you and cheer you along every step of the way. Sometimes they can be the voice of reason when you are getting too worked up... but that like never happens, right?? (Sure)
They’re your shoulder to cry on, the wardrobe you exchange with, and the ones who so willingly volunteer to go on all the McDonald’s runs with you! And you would do it all for them.
I’ve found the best part of going through life with your girls is one day turning them into your *Bride Squad* The idea of having them included and honored in our wedding day gets me SO hyped. I really hope they understand the copious amount of all the prenuptial selfies we will be taking that morning... along with the mimosas we will be consuming, of course. All dolled up, looking like we are fancy or something. October 2020 can’t come soon enough!
Here’s to all the nights we stayed up late, talking guys, school, work, our dreams, and solving all the worlds problems. Here’s to always having each other’s backs and never questioning who has been in our corner all along.
Thank you for laughs until my belly was soar, thank you for your guidance, thank you for all the adventures, thank you for the hilarious group chats, thank you for reminding me never to take life too serious and most importantly thank you all for being, you.
Share with your girls and let ‘em know you gotta little soft spot for them. Or a major gushy one that you can never hide and you just wanna squeeze them every time you are graced with their presence! (Aka me)
I hope every one had a rockin’ Valentine’s Day yesterday and that you know (regardless of your relationship status) you are SO LOVED!!!
All the best,
