If you are a fan of the late, great NBC hit show Parks & Recreaction, then you are familiar with Galentine’s Day. Only the greatest holiday of the year. If you’re not familiar with this holiday that celebrates ladies, here’s the quick overview.
Leslie Knope is everything. Amy Poehler is everything. And lady friends, yes, they are everything too.
Who is there for you when it hasn’t been your day, week, month or even your year? Lady friends.
Who can you text at 2am while you are feeding a baby and want to know if THAT should look like THAT? Lady friends.
Who understands if you go radio silent for weeks at a time because you can’t get your life together enough to change your pants let alone make a phone call? Lady friends.
So I love that Galentine’s Day is on the calendar to give a special shoutout to those ladies who love us, and whom we love so fiercely back. Valentine’s Day is great and all, but ovaries before broveries.
To celebrate Galentine’s Day send a text, post on Facebook, get to tweeting. Or do a little shopping! Check out the Galentine’s Day Gift Guide courtesy of Amazon Prime and the creatives on Etsy. Affordable and adorable. (affiliate links)

Alright, I know this last one doesn’t include any Parks & Rec references, but you know Leslie and Ann would have had this magnet.
I’ve been fortunate to have so many strong, supportive women in my life. The go to bat for you women. The stand up for what’s right women. The support your dreams with every fiber of their beings women.
You too? Give them a big ole Happy Galentine’s Day from me. And I hope you found some lovely Galentine’s Day gifts for them. They are poetic land mermaids, and they deserve it.
