Happy February all! I’ve been a little MIA from blog posts these past few weeks because I’ve been super busy with some big life things – I’ll spill the beans on that soon enough 🙂 .
A couple weeks back though I was able to be a part of a super special Galentine’s Day inspired shoot and I felt the need to pop on and share these gorgeous photos and my top reasons why I wholeheartedly believe in the celebration of Galentine’s Day.
While, what some call a ‘Hallmark holiday’, Valentine’s Day has been celebrated for centuries, Galentine’s day is a more recent holiday from the fictional mind of Leslie Knope (the IRL Amy Poehler) from Parks and Recreation. What started out as a cute cheesey holiday in 2010 on a television show has evolved into a real life holiday where women across the world come together, support each other and overall have fun.
Typically celebrated the day before Valentines Day (February 13th), Galentine’s Day is a way to celebrate the joys of female friendship – whether thats over a boozy brunch, a happy hour or just spending an evening in with your best girlfriends.
Now while there is no right or wrong way to celebrate – there are a few local to Baltimore events happening that I’d strongly recommend checking out one or both!
Alysha of @DiscoverCharmCity and Shae of Beautifully Together are hosting a Galentine’s Day party at Sangria on N. Charles St – 5:30 – 8PM 2/13 – The event is FREE but they are collecting feminine products for @helpingup Mission!
The Society of Excellent Women and Sentimental Fools are hosting a Galentine’s Day party at Monument City Brewing – 6:30 – 10PM 2/13 – The event is $15 and you can grab your tickets here!
So whether you already have plans or are grabbing a ticket to one of those events – just take the time to celebrate your fellow bad-ass female friends – because as Carrie Bradshaw once said – ‘Maybe our girlfriends are our soul-mates and guys are just people to have fun with.’
A HUGE thank you to all the vendors below who made this Galentine’s Day shoot incredible!
