A long weekend always gets me in some type of mood. I’m anxious for the upcoming weekend, but know I shouldn’t be since I just had such a good break.
This past weekend was full of quality Galentines fun. For those of you living under a rock and/or have not ever been exposed to the wonder & awe that is Parks & Recreation, Galentine’s Day is celebrated the day before Valentine’s Day and is supposed to celebrate friendship with your best and closest gal-pals. Seeing as I don’t have a typical romantic Valentine, I spent the long weekend amongst my close friends. I gave myself some proper self-care and rejuvenated myself in the presence of those I love. We ate good food, drank coffee, shopped, strolled the beach, and fell asleep lulled by the simple company of truly wonderful people. I am, for lack of a better term, lucky. I don’t know how else to explain the reasons for why I am surrounded by magnificent and good people–like truly good and brilliant people. (s/o to my roommate and old roommates and their friends and sig. o’s.)
Despite the hardships that come and pick at me, weekends like this past one remind me to be grateful and to take advantage of the time we have together with our friends. They are, after all, the family we get to choose.
This TunesDay, I put together some feel-good tunes that hopefully get you through this minimized work week so you can spend the upcoming weekend fully present with those you love. I know Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day is over, but that doesn’t mean the lovin’ has to stop!
How will you keep the love going this weekend and beyond?
