My Best Galentine's Day Moments
For a very long time, I was single on Valentine's Day, but always in good company! In honor of my girlfriends, I dug out some old souvenirs: pictures from my favorite Galentine's Day celebrations. Cheers to you my Lady Friends!

I was 18 years old and a college freshman. This was our first V-day as 'emancipated' young adults. We hung out at my best friend's place. There were no boys around but there were a lot of laughs and dancing!

Fast forward three years, we were Seniors. Four girls still single and hoping to make that last year of university count. We decided to try speed dating at an event organized by a student association from school. These were the pre-Tinder/Happn/Inner Circle days. The stars were not aligned for us: my friends didn't land any dates and I made it too late because of class/work. However, we enjoyed the after-party and it turned out to be a fun girls' night out!

I always dreamt of hosting an "I hate Valentine's Day" party. Leo came over one evening and we baked together hundreds of heart cookies (note: you can find the recipe here).
The next day a bunch of girlfriends came over to prepare the royal icing and decorate the cookies. It was an explosion of Beyonce music, tea, sugar and sprinkles! I was sugar high for a few days.
Thanks my friends for bringing love and joy to my life! I cherish these moments and can't wait to celebrate more with you in the future!
What about you, any favorite Galentine's Day celebration?
