GIRL CODE - HOW TO NAIL GALENTINES DAY (1)

What’s Galentines Day?

This Valentine’s Day, I decided to switch things up, and instead of celebrating the love my husband, and I share everyday on just one day, I decided to celebrate my girl pals here in Atlanta for Galentine’s Day. What’s Galentine’s Day you ask? It is the other side of Valentine’s Day. It is a day (February 13th) when girl friends, single or not, celebrate each other. I decided to celebrate the hard-working, women that also share my passion for love, and life. Don’t get me wrong, I will also celebrate Valentine’s Day with my husband (he can’t get off that easy). But why not do both! Plus, I never turn down an excuse to dress up and ki-ki with girlfriends.
