Daydreams: Galentine’s Day
Who say's Valentine's Day is just for the lovers? Instead, why not gather together your beloved female friends and celebrate with your sisters of the soul.
"In the Circle, we are all equal. There is no one in front of you and there's nobody behind you. No one is above you; no one is below you. The Circle is Sacred because it is designed to create Unity."
Lakota Wisdom - WILD WOMAN SISTERHOOD
You may not have heard of Galentine's Day (unless of course you are a fan of Parks & Rec), first introduced by Amy Poehler's empowered character Leslie Knope way back in 2010. Women celebrating women is a holiday we can definitely get behind and here are some ways you can join in with your sisterhood!
1. Yummy Brunch
Gather together your dearest gal pals and host a brunch with hot waffles, fresh fruit and bottomless mimosas. Encourage one another to share a little about what makes you friends, including everyone into the conversation, building one another up.
2. Creative Crafternoon
Perhaps your group of friends are the kind of gals with baskets of wool, scraps of tissue paper and boxes of beads. Pool your supplies, search your favourite Pinterests and blogs and find a project or two to occupy your hands while you get creative together. Or use our how to make a dreamcatcher guide on Tree Blog!
3. Say it with Words
If you are a little short on time, perhaps just a handwritten note to say how much you appreciate their friendship, love and support. Attach an old photo to it, pop it an envelope and post it off. It'll be a lovely suprise and it's good for the soul!
4. Moonlit Meal
Prepare a feast to enjoy under the stars and treat yourselves to a candle lit dinner for twelve or how ever many are in your gal group.
5. Road Trip!
No true friendship is complete without a roadtrip thrown in there somewhere. There's nothing like getting on the open road, listening to classic tunes and eating at little old takeaway joints to really bond with someone. Chase the adventure and feel wild and free!
These are just a few suggestions, so find what works for you and yours.
Celebrate female friendship, build one another up and feel your hearts lighten!
