Girlfriends: Where would we be without them?
I recently met some friends I hadn’t seen in forever for dinner. We drank, we laughed, we listened, and we gave each other advice. It was almost therapeutic meeting with them and much needed. The next day we all felt “rejuvenated”. You NEED those nights out with your gal pals. You can get lost in the day to day hustle and bustle and can’t forget that one of the best parts of life is the relationships you have. Not just the one with your spouse, kids, family… but your girlfriends.
It is funny to think that this whole idea of a holiday got started on a Parks and Rec episode about 10 years ago. I mean, who wouldn’t want to celebrate friendships!?
Personally, I don't know where I would be without my girlfriends. They are a huge part of my life. There is saying that goes to surround yourself with people that encourage and inspire positive change in your life. I mean, last night my good friend was trying to hold me accountable to my eating healthy goal. I had to confess I had four Red Lobster cheese biscuits and a hot dog for dinner. (You know those biscuits are amazing people!) Or my sister who has been working out for a week and is now all Jillian Michaels on me about it. My other good friend who tells me when I am being cray cray and to come back down to earth when need be. My other friend who is the one I have laughed my butt off since I was 8 because laughter is therapeutic. All in all; friendships are so important in life and I cherish each one.
SO where am I going with all this? Well next week is Galentine's Day! Market on Oak is having our first ever:
