Galentine’s Day is an awesome way to celebrate the best gals in your life. It seems like I never get to sit (uninterrupted) for any amount of time with girlfriends. It’s always a hustle to get from one place to the next.
A few weeks ago, Jenny Hansen Lane invited several Kentucky bloggers to her studio for a Galentine’s photoshoot!
I love to surround myself with women who are chasing the same goals I am, so I immediately jumped at the chance to participate. This is actually the second time we’ve all gotten together for a shoot with Jenny. We gathered for a fun Christmas cocktail party back in December. I always look forward to hanging out with these wonderful ladies.
These women are rare breeds and truly talented individuals. On top of blogging, some are also full-time attorneys, business owners, moms, wives, photographers… the list goes on. The immense talent between all the women in one room was mind-boggling!
We shared fashion advice, blogging advice, heart-to-heart moments and lots of fun and laughter. In a time where everyone faces so much adversity, it was refreshing to see powerful women of the universe come together. There was so much uplift without competition and it was a beautiful thing! Having a circle full of encouragement, clapping for you is always worth celebrating! Just like the sign says, “be each others’ personal hype woman.”
So… We threw our very own Galentine’s Day party and made it a photoshoot! We all had the best time enjoying each other’s company.
We had cookies from The Futile Gourmet, donuts from North Lime and cocktails with distilled gin from Castle & Key Distillery.
Also, Samantha made these adorable Vanilla Butter Melt Away Cookies in festive pinks!
A big thanks to all of the generous vendors who made our event so special:
Wabi Sabi Threads, The Futile Gourment, Savvy Salon & Spa, Cherry Seed Coffee, Sash & Bow Boutique, Hunter Sherwood, Creatures of Whim, and Wixology Candle Co.
