Galentines day, which is celebrated the day before Valentine's Day, started on the television show Parks & Recreation, but has become a beloved holiday celebrated by many. The day is meant to celebrate friendships, particularly those between women.
This year (aka: still feels like last year), friendships have been more important than ever. Actually being connected in-person to your friends has been difficult and so staying connected is important. I moved to a new state in August and I miss my lady friends.
So I wanted to share some ways to connect, and show your friends some love.
tell your friend that you miss them with our hand printed notecards
The ‘i miss your face’ notecard says it all: I miss your face NOT on a zoom screen, I miss your face in-person, makeup, no makeup, smiles, blemishes, beauty and all.
get an extra-special gift
We're bringing back one of our most popular bandana designs, 'i'm still standing'. Remind your girlfriends that we're still here, still standing, and still blazing trails.
pssst, this style is not currently in our store but it's coming back for the spring! I wrote about our new styles, and how you can sign up to guarantee that you get new designs every year with the Wild Hearts Club subscription.
something fancy for...a zoom date
I'll take any chance to dress up these days, even for a zoom gathering or an outdoor fire where I never remove my jacket so no one sees my new corduroy jumpsuit.
Our silver bandana slides are studded with turquoise colored stone. Spice up a classic bandana look!
Touch base with the friends that bring you joy. Though I miss my friends back home, I'm making new ones in my new home. One of my closest lady friends is my ride-or-die walking buddy. We don't go two days without a walk together and it's kept me sane in a new place, during a pandemic, and my first New England winter.
What am I giving my walking buddy as a gift this year? A Jenni Earle bandana of course.
happy galentines to all of you trailblazers out there.
