My Forever Galentine

Valentine's Day

I love Galentine's Day.  For those of you who don't watch Parks and Rec (why?!) it's this Friday, February 13th.  It's all about celebrating the women in your life.  I love the concept because I'm pretty sure I have the most amazing women surrounding me.  Whether it be my sister, my friends, and obviously Bianca, I'm pretty sure I'm the luckiest lady alive.  Lately I've been thinking about traditions to start with Bianca and Galentine's Day will definitely be one of them.  She's going to learn early on that she doesn't need validation from a boy to enjoy a holiday!

The last time I wore this dress I was five months pregnant.  It fit me much better back then and I'm incredibly sad it doesn't now.  It's very well constructed with lots of structure and boning in the bodice but that also makes it hard to conform to my body.  I obviously haven't given up on it yet!  There's a wonderful girl I work with who does alterations and I'm thinking this one could be her next project...

This new year has already been exhausting but incredibly rewarding.  I don't want to jinx myself here, but I feel like the future looks really bright for my family and myself.  I can' remember the last time Kevin or I had a few hours alone but the hard work will pay off!  What's a reward without the struggle to receive it, right?
