Galentine’s Day Gallery

It’s the best day of the year!

Thanks to our beloved Leslie Knope, Galentine’s Day—the day we celebrate lady friends—is part of our February holidays.

My gal Kristina and I took a Saturday to dress up in matching denim jumpers and attend a Galentine’s Day party at Lightbox.

We had so much fun! Shoutout to a local, female-run business!

There were different Galentine’s sets around the loft, and we loved them all. My favorite was the paper chains.

Check out the rest of the sets below:


We were CRACKING UP at this photo. It just screams Step Brothers.

My favorite thing about Kristina is her willingness to try new things. We love to cheer each other on in new adventures. Most of the time we’re embarking on them together anyway. 🙂

Let’s continue to make Galentine’s Day a priority. I’d be nowhere if I didn’t have some awesome ladies behind me cheering me on.

Thanks to Hannah and her team at Lightbox for the fun Saturday!
