And as an official girl's girl, I obviously am a HUGE supporter of Galentine's Day. I could explain it, but I rather quote one of my most beloved ladies Leslie Knope: "February 14th, Valentine's Day, is about romance. But February 13th, Galentine's Day, is about celebrating lady friends. It's wonderful and it should be a National Holiday."
I celebrated this year's Galentine's Day with 2/3 of my Disney roomies. We decided on a lovely Cuban+Spanish restaurant in the heart of Celebration, Florida called Columbia. We each ordered various tapas and split a pitcher of cava sangria, which SO reminded me of my time in Barcelona. It was a very lovely evening, and the food was incredible. (PS: Although I definitely recommend this restaurant, I suggest going at lunch because dinner is a tad pricey.)
I feel like God or the universe has been listening intently on my thoughts, prayers, and worries, because I keep getting shown positive signs when I have doubts. In this instance, Celebration reminded me that Florida isn't all about the hustle and bustle; that is does offer some Pleasantville-like atmosphere, which I so enjoy. I just like living in a city where the people are friendly and naturally caring, say for instance like Nashville! And I think Celebration could offer some of those same characteristics! :)
Haha, so this post got a little off-topic, so let me wrap it back up with some more Galentine's Day love. I just want to thank every lady that has impacted my life, because without you all, I wouldn't be the woman I am today. I'm talking to you Mom, all my aunts and cousins, best friends Brittany and Brittany, Miss Katelyn, all my Kentucky gal pals, my Barcelona host mom Cristina, female professors (especially my professional idol Dr. Darbi), THE GREAT EIGHT (DCP Fall 2012, wha wha!), my new PI roomies, my female Wilderness Explorerssss, the rest of my new lovely lady friends I've made during "Brittany Takes Disney: Part Two!", and basically any other gal out there. Because remember, the fiercest lady of them all - the Queen B - said if best when she asked, "Who are we?! What we run?! We run the world!! Who run the world? GIRLS!" :)
