Galentine's Day ~ one year ago today

Can you believe it's been only a year since this gathering of "women celebrating women" on Galentine's Day 2020?  Of the people I can identify in the photos from last year, at least one has died, a couple have moved away, and we haven't been sitting together at the Café tables like this since last March.

It seems like ages ago that I posted this invitation saying, "Let's party on Thursday," and we gathered in the Circle@Crown Café.  I was going to simply link this to last year's photo album, but then decided to post all the pictures here.  You can click to enlarge the photos and have fun identifying people you may know.  Yeah, we could see whole faces back then and now have trouble recognizing each other, with only eyes and hair color to help us figure out who that is behind the mask, who now has hair down to her shoulders.

Notice that the Café was open and other customers were there, too.  Some of us brought a friend or a caregiver, so you may not recognize every person in these photos.

And this is what Galentine's Day is all about on February 13th every year, even when we have to "meet" online or by phone.

I first heard about Galentine's Day in 2018, when Barbara and Sandy and Donna helped me get a few invitations out to friends.  I miss my friend Barbara, who died before these photos were taken.

Memories - of friendly faces, and of an open world.

Nice memory and so sad that many are not in Crown Center with you any more. It feels quite amazing that we're coming up soon on the one year mark of this pandemic lock down.
