definition: "only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas." -Leslie Knope
Galentine's is probably my third favorite holiday. Right after Christmas and Thanksgiving. I've always had a majority of male friends, so celebrating the ladies who decide to put up with me is pretty important to me. Shout out to you gals, you da ril MVPs.
This year for Galentine's Day, I spent the morning with my pregger sister brunching on Starbucks while watching Coco and the Olympics, then hanging with my tiny sister who I got to pick up early from school (thanks strep throat!), getting coffee a new photographer friend (yay for photog frands!), and then having Valentine's dinner with my love who is cooking me dinner tonight, because tomorrow I am having just a bit of mouth surgery.
I'm sad to not be throwing our annual Galentine's Party with my bff this year. But luckily, I got to attend an early Galentine's Party. Meghan of I'm Fixin' To and Courtney of Courtney Fashionista hosted a handful of bloggers at Level 7 Rooftop Bar in the North Hills AC Hotel. Angela of Head to Toe Chic, Lindsey of Baubles and Backdrops, Jessica of Linn Style, and Stephanie of A Style of Her Own all attended, and we had a fabulous time celebrating gal pals. We started off getting drinks at the bar, and then Petals on the Go began the event by teaching us how to make our own flower crowns!
After lots of laughs and much concentration, everyone was adorned with beautiful halos. Level 7 then brought out some deliciousness, and we feasted tapas style!
And of course, it wouldn't be a blogger event if we didn't take outfit photos!
Thank you so much to Meghan and Courtney along with Level 7, Petals on the Go, Moon & Lola, and A Southern Sugar Bakery for making this Galentine's Event so special!
