Happy GALentine’s Day

Hating the pressure of Valentine’s Day?  Not sure what your significant other has planned?  Worried he won’t live up to your expectations?  Why not leave the stress behind, grab some of your girlfriends, and have some fun with a night out on GALentine’s Day!  February 13 has been made famous by Leslie Knope, a character from the show Parks and Recreation starring Amy Poehler.  This is a day designed to celebrate our successes and lift each other up.  During the winter months the cold weather and lack of daylight tends to keep us locked up indoors.  I find that the friends I spend most of my summer days with seem to fall off the face of the earth during these long, dreary months.  On Feb. 13, let’s break out of our rut and let our friends know how important they are to us!

Here are 3 Ways You Can Show Your Friend How Special They Are on GALentine’s Day:

1. Do choose a special gift
I like to let my friends know how much they mean to be by giving them something that reflects who they are to me.  Victoria Emerson has unique wrap bracelets in all different styles.  You can choose a different one for each friend that reflects their personality! Or surprise them with flowers on their doorstep.

2. Do go out and leave the guys behind
Enjoy the night where you can be silly and not take yourself too seriously.  Sign up for a cooking class and have fun with the girls and learn something new.  Kitchen Time in Massapequa will take care of the prep and cleaning while you do all the fun stuff!

3. Don’t go out in your sweats!
What’s more fun than having an excuse to throw on that new top you’ve been waiting to wear!  Make this night special by doing something different than your usual routine (at least it’s my usual routine to throw on my sweats after work!).
