How To Have The Best Galentine's Day Ever
Vignette3

What's Galentine's Day, you ask? Only the best day of the year! Valentine's Day is when you celebrate romantic love with your S.O., but Galentine's Day, Feb. 13, is when you celebrate lady friends. Originally created by Leslie Knope played by Amy Poehler on "Parks and Recreation," the holiday is arguably more important than Valentine's Day. Here are some things to do on Galentine's Day that will basically guarantee that it will be the best day.

1. Shower your lady friends in gifts

Your friends deserve to know that you love them, so what better way to show that than with a token of your gratitude?

2. Go out to eat

You don't have to "kick it breakfast style" like Leslie and her friends, but enjoy a good brunch, lunch, dinner or even late-night drunk food with your closest ladies.

3. Get your drink on

Mimosas, wine, beer, mixed drinks ... you name it, you drink it.

4. Give as many compliments as you can

Galentine's Day is all about letting your friends know how much you appreciate them. Let your true feelings flow and do not hold back.

5. Talk about your love lives

Just because you left your S.O.s at home doesn't mean that you can't talk about them! Let your girls know how you're feeling about your relationship.

6. Eat something sweet

Extravagant desserts are not reserved for Valentine's Day. Bring on the chocolate and whipped cream!

7. Invite as many friends as possible

Everyone deserves to feel the love on Galentine's Day.

8. Plan a fun activity for you and your gal pals to do

Whether you'll be going out to a bar or just staying in and watching movies, do something that you will all enjoy together.

9. Enjoy each other's company — try and keep the texting, tweeting and posting to a minimum

You are there to catch up with your lady friends, so be present in the moment and enjoy their company.

10. Take pictures with your girls to commemorate the best day of the year

Frame it and give it to them next Galentine's Day as a gift!

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
