Galentine’s Day

If you have ever seen Parks and Recreation, then you know all about Galentine’s Day. If you haven’t, Galentine’s Day is a day where women get together and celebrate how amazing and special their friendships are. It truly is a day for “ladies celebrating ladies.” Plus, there is always an abundance of breakfast food!

As a chapter consultant, I honestly feel as though every day is Galentine’s Day. I have the opportunity to work with truly unbelievable collegian women, alumnae and headquarters staff members. Day-in and day-out, these women remind me why I chose to become an Alpha Chi Omega. They allow me to love my job and this sisterhood more and more every day.

As an Alpha Chi Omega, every day I am in awe over the amazing sisters we have all over the nation. We have sisters who can make a quick call turn into hours of chatting. Our sisters are the first to tell us that we can accomplish anything. Each and every day, they show us what real, strong women look like and I am beyond thankful for each of them.

We have sisters who are dedicated leaders and selfless women. Whether it is a chapter sister or a sister across the country, our members everywhere live our Ritual and push one another to seek the heights. Working with our members truly has made me a better person, sister and Alpha Chi.

Our Alpha Chi sisters are our rocks, our people and our role models. They allow us to be the driven, goofy, strong women we all are. As a chapter consultant, I constantly meet members who truly impress me with their spark, work ethic and dedication to Alpha Chi Omega. Everywhere I go, I meet members who make me proud to call them my sisters.

So this Galentine’s Day, I encourage you to whip up some waffles, grab some sisters and celebrate this incredible bond we all share.AXOnightout_logo_sanslyre

Today, February 11, also happens to be Alpha Chi Omega’s first #AXONightOut! As part of Alpha Chi Omega’s Healthy Relationship Week, celebrate our sisterhood and connect with a sister in person, by phone or on Skype and tell the world about it using the hashtag. Then send your photos to editor@alphachiomega.org to add to our official photo album!

Happy Galentine’s Day and #AXONightOut!
