Who says Valentine's Day is only for the lovebirds? This time around we're reclaiming it and naming it Galentine's Day, a term coined by none other than Amy Poehler's Parks and Rec character Leslie Knope. So, instead of crying in a pint of ice cream, while rewatching The Notebook over and over again, take the charge. This time around, instead of feeling the lack of romantic love in your life - take a time to appreciate the love you are already receiving and tend to seldom acknowledge - the love from your mom, sister, and girlfriends.

Shopping for yourself is hard, shopping for others is even harder, and shopping last minute is probably harder than it was for Sisyphus to roll that enormous boulder up the hill. (Leave it up to me to try and make a Greek mythology reference anytime I can. Does it always work? Not sure...) But hey, don't stress, cause I got you.

To the fathers in our lives: Thank you for working so hard to support our dreams. Thank you for working so hard and setting an example that things in life don't come easy - you have to work for them. Thank you for working so hard that we realize that time spent with you is so valuable. Thank you for believing in our dreams and always helping us improve. Thank you for teaching us how to change a tire, fire up the grill and all of the other things that we never thought we needed, but soon enough we realized that we actually really do. Thank you for being our biggest fan.
To the mothers in our lives: You gave us life, love and nurture. You are a parent and a friend. You are the backbone and the neck that turns our heads into right directions. You are the multitasker. You are unconditional love. You are the confidante. You are a compass and the lodestar that guides us out of the darkness. You are all of that and more. You are EVERYTHING. Without you, the life wouldn’t have the same quality and meaning as it does.
