CHAMPAGNE TOASTS WITH LIZ || HAPPY GALENTINES DAY!
Hi loves! HAPPY GALENTINE'S DAY!! If you weren't aware of this amazing holiday, let me introduce it to you (all thanks to Leslie Knopp from Parks & Rec):
I thought today was as good a day as any to kick off a series I'll be sharing with y'all every now & then. We're calling it "Champagne Toasts" because we believe that every season of life can be toasted to & well lived. No matter your season, let's seek out the moments that deserve a CHAMPAGNE TOAST and celebrate accordingly.
For me specifically, I am striving to live well in a season of singleness and I feel confident that many of you are walking through that season as well. I want this to be a place of comfort and encouragement to those of you that are in this same season.
. If you're on this blog, it's probably because you have some sort of interest in weddings (or your my mom... hi mom). As single women, longing for the day that we get to be a bride can be a bittersweet journey. But ladies, I am here to tell you that this season does not need to be a series of wasted days just because life looks differently than we might have hoped it would. Today I am going to be sharing about one of the greatest ways we can live well in this season of singleness: COMMUNITY/GAL PALS.
Today I am raising a glass to all my gal pals that make this life so dang sweet. Community has truly been the greatest gift to me as I have walked through singleness. My girlfriends have laughed with me over terrible date stories, cried with me & wiped my tears as the pain felt too heavy, and spoken words of truth and love over me so I never lose sight of my worth.
If those people aren't worth a champagne toast then I don't know who is! I pray, so deeply, that you all have people in your life that will joyfully walk alongside you through whatever seasons life throws at you. From singleness to motherhood, we need our people so that we can live well, love well, and be well.
Ladies, GO LOVE ON YOUR GALENTINES!!
If you see them, give them a big ole hug. If you don't see them, shoot them a text or give them a ring to tell them "I love you. Thank you for being my people." Life is far too short not to say the things that matter to the people that matter most to us.
So from me to you, HAPPY GALENTINES DAY!!
I love you so much & am grateful for this community of amazing women. You all are fierce, faithful, and FABULOUS! Don't let any person or circumstance make you feel differently.
If you need a friend, I am here for you! Don't hesitate to reach out because I'd love to connect with you, encourage you, and love ya right where you are.

Sending you BIG (virtual) HUGS & LOVE!
XOXOXO, Liz Cox
