February 13, 2016

I am an un-ironic lover of Valentine’s Day. My family made it special. We celebrate our love for each other. I transferred that to as many other people in my life as I thought would accept heart-shaped cards without getting weirded out.

Then I got Netflix and started watching Parks & Rec for the first time this fall. Enter Galentine’s Day. Even more love to spread and people to celebrate. An excuse to tell women I love and appreciate them without the chance of a bitter undernote of resenting a lack of romantic interest. We don’t have to villainize or commercialize this love fest. Simply celebrate.

So how about it?

Hello, February.

Hi, second month. Hello, leap month. You’re one of my favorite rare treats. Even though you’re short, I know it’s going to be full of productivity, books, drinks, puppy bow ties, and writing. Hey, Galentine’s Day. I’m psyched to celebrate you this year. Come on, more snow days. I wouldn’t be mad at you.

You’re short and sweet, February. Let’s make the most of all 29 days.
