Uh oh. The stores are filling up with red stuff. If it’s one thing I don’t like its red roses. That means my “favorite” day of the year is approaching. Grrr. Don’t need to repeat it, so you can read all about it in the link.
Then my uber cool millennial daughter told me about Amy Poehler’s Galantine’s Day. Now I’m inspired to celebrate!
So I’m throwing a teensy soiree to honor my gal pals. No red at this party. Bouquets of pink and white flowers. Pale pink kir royale. Lovely nibbles. A pink cake or maybe Petits Fours.
My goal for the party is a pretty space and relaxed, easy conversation. No stress entertaining. I haven’t figured out the menu yet, but I want it to be delightful, unexpected, and easy on chef me.
When my best friend got married she asked my advice for a good marriage. “Have good girlfriends,” I answered.
“I wasn’t expecting that, but you’re absolutely right.”
Of course, first you have to marry the “right” man. But your mate can’t be everything to you or do everything for you. Having amazing gal pals can help get you though tough moments as well as provide many rich, happy fun times that take the stress off a marriage.
Making people feel special and loved is one of the things I most like to do. You, dear readers, thrill me. To know that you are out there, sharing and enjoying my simple words means everything to me. You are my virtual gal pals and I want to make you feel special and loved.
I salute you and wish you the love and warmth of your female friends this Valentine’s Day.
P.S. I wrote this piece a week early so you have time to plan a party if it inspires you.
