Grab Your Gal Pals: It's Galentine's!
Article Written by Tamara Schneider and Brooklyn Walters
A lot of attention is paid to romantic love; there are movies about it, songs about it, even websites and apps devoted to helping you find “the one”. But what about the love between friends, especially gal pals? This is a love that oftentimes lasts longer than romantic relationships. Your girlfriends are the ones who will listen to you even if you’re being ridiculous. They’ll laugh with you, cry with you, and make fun of you whenever the occasion warrants. The love between friends is just as meaningful, if not more so, than the love between partners, so while we look forward to Valentine’s Day, don’t neglect celebrating your friendships. To help you with your planning, our intern, Brooklyn, has come up with a few ideas for Galentine’s Day!
