Will You Be Our Galentine? / by Julie Schumacher

Well what a surprise! We got the most delightful note from Forth favorite Alison of Tiny Bold today.  It was so delightful we wanted to share it with you.
On what can be considered one of the best television comedies on right now (don’t argue with me on this - I’m armed with quotes upon quotes of ammunition), Parks and Recreation has created the best day ever: Galentine's Day.
What is Galentine's Day you ask? Well, let’s hear it from Leslie Knope herself:
“Oh, it’s only the best day of the year! Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lillith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”

You know what that sounds like to me? Forth Chicago. Only instead of frittatas, we have whatever delicious creations those wonderful Three-Forths create for us.

It can be a crazy ride to be a woman in creative industries, crazier to be the owner of a business, and triple-crazy when you have nobody to talk to about it. Forth’s ability to bring us all together to give support, advice, encouragement, and giant hugs is a magical thing. Almost like four Galentine's Days a year!

So here’s a happy Galentine’s day to the Forth women - a group that truly celebrates ladies being ladies, in the most powerful way possible.

Hip hip and hear hear Alison! Thanks for being our Galentine. And to all you ladies out there, keep on being awesome.
