Celebrate Gal/ Val-entines with a Pink Drink Roundup

At what age do you stop¬†wanting Valentines? Because we aren't there yet. ūü©∑‚̧ԳŹ

Valentine's Day might not involve a quiet dinner for two, especially on a weeknight hustling to/from work, chauferring kids around, and juggling all of life's responsibilities, but a slightly longer embrace and a look that says "I'd choose you again" is still romance. And we're here for it.

You can show off your feelings for someone in whatever way feels right for you, but quality time (aaaaaand maybe a treat) are budget-friendly ways to remind someone you're sweet on them. *wink*

The invention of Galentine's Day (aka February 13th) before Valentine's Day is the perfect reminder to reconnect with those fab friends you don't see as often as you'd like and remind them of that one time... before laughing so hard we snort.

To paraphrase the wise Ferris Bueller,

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and *hang out with your girlfriends* once in a while, you could miss it."

Of course these are made up holidays. But why wouldn't we choose to add more celebration to our lives? If you're into it, toast a pal or a partner with something pink and lovely. Or just toast your own dang self!  After all, "Learning to love yourself is the greatest gift of all." ~Whitney Houston
