Mark and I aren’t too big on Valentine’s Day – we had a what-could-have-been-a-disaster first Valentine’s Day date, though it ended up being fun in the end.
We had gone to a new restaurant where the food was so bad we had to send it back (and I NEVER do that but it wasn’t even close to tasting like what we had ordered.) The manager then came over and yelled at us for rejecting the food. We left and went to a chain restaurant next door and ended up having a blast! Needless to say we’ve never went back to the first restaurant, and thankfully the place went out of business quickly.
Though we weren’t too keen on V-Day before that happened and since we try to celebrate the little things as much as possible all year round, we have let Valentine’s Day pretty much fall by the way side.
BUT this doesn’t mean that I don’t think it is a nice holiday to show those in your life that you care about them. I’d like to take a page from the great Leslie Knope, and celebrate my wonderful girlfriends with Galentine’s Day. I think it’s fun to send little notes to my gal pals just to let them know I’m thinking about them – what better way to do so than these quirky and funny cards created by the secret life of us
Share the love! Happy V/Galentine’s Day!
