The time has come once again to be a lady celebrating other ladies. Of course, I am talking about Galentine's Day, the wonderful holiday dreamed up by Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation. These Galentine's Day cards are pretty self-explanatory, but if you are unfamiliar with the holiday, Galentine's Day is the day before Valentine's Day when you go to brunch with all of your best girl friends and just celebrate each other. Maybe you exchange gifts, maybe you just catch up over mimosas, maybe you just hang out and watch TV. It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you forget the dudes and celebrate your favorite female friendships.
Galentine's Day is sweet, and the perfect excuse to remind your best friend that you love her. And if Leslie Knope endorses it, then you know you have to too. Personally, I have some pretty great friends scattered around the world, and we won't be able to celebrate the holiday together, but that's where the magic of mail comes in. Through the power of boxes, stamps, and government employees, I can send my love letters to my BFFs this Galentine's Day. Check on the cards below and send them to your very best gal pals. And remember, ovaries before brovaries.
