GALENTINE'S DAY 2018

Galentine's day is on February 13th! Are you ready? If you're unfamiliar with this holiday, women around the country celebrate female friendship. Amy Poehler's Parks and Rec character Lesley Knope described the holiday on the show:

"Oh, it's 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."

Here are some recommended readings and potential gifts surrounded by female friendship:
