As you are probably well aware, February 13 marks the absolute best holiday of the entire year: Galentine's Day. Courtesy of Parks and Rec's Leslie Knope, Galentine's Day is a time for awesome women to celebrate the other awesome women in their lives — which is something we should do every day, TBH. Besides actually hanging out together, what better way to celebrate your fierce lady-squad than with an adorable Instagram? If you find yourself with photo caption writer's block (as I so often do), don't worry because as usual, Leslie Knope has your back: she's provided us with a goldmine of quotes that are perfect Instagram captions for Galentine's Day.

As much as I love Galentine's Day, I have to confess that I have nothing against regular old Valentine's Day, either. OK, maybe I'm a little resentful of how much V-Day hogs the February holiday spotlight — and let's face it: Valentine's Day isn't always enjoyable when you're single. The good news? Your relationship status is totally irrelevant where Galentine's Day is concerned. All you need to have an amazing Galentine's Day is a little love from your friends, and maybe a trip to your local diner for some Knope-approved waffles.

After you pick the perfect filter for your Galentine's Day Instagram post, here are 19 Leslie Knope quotes to borrow if you want the cutest, funniest caption that would make Leslie herself proud.
