The Women of Trusst Celebrate Galentine's Day
With the approach of Valentine’s Day, we wanted to shine a light on another holiday that is actually on February 13th...Galentine’s Day. If you don’t know what Galentine’s Day is, well it’s a day for “ladies celebrating ladies” (according to Wikipedia). Whether you have a romantic partner or not, we can all agree that female comradery is equally as important. To find someone who truly gets you and will be there for you no matter what is irreplaceable and oftentimes, rare.
Because of this unofficial holiday, we thought we would ask the ladies of Trusst to answer the following questions about their bestie:
Who is your best friend?
How long have you been friends?
What do you love about your bestie?
We met in fifth grade and have been best friends ever since.
Sasha and I grew up in Southern California together but since college, we have always lived in different places. No matter what, I love that we can always pick up exactly where we left off. Growing up, Sasha and I would always work on very special projects - like creating collages on chopsticks (which took hours). We even created our own fashion company together - called Berlit Fashions! I was Sasha's MOH and she was mine, and we had our first daughters within a few weeks of each other. We have a super special bond that I am forever grateful for! - Sophia, Founder + CCO
I have been friends with Mercedes for 12 years!
I love that we can be completely opposite but she is she is my other half. Even though throughout all these years we still get weird and love every moment when we do get together. She is the kindest and funniest person I know and I don't think I would have done life without her! - Mariah, Product Designer
We’ve been friends since 2nd grade, so about 26 years!
Because we’ve been friends for so long, she literally knows me better than anyone. Sometimes even better than I know myself. She’s been there for me in some of the most difficult and happiest times of my life. She’s generous, kind, funny, and tells me exactly what I need to hear (not always what I want to hear). - Chelsey, Content Manager
We have been friends for 10 years
The thing I love most about my best friend is her ability to put everyone before herself. She is undeniably the most selfless person I have ever met. There has never been a time during our friendship that she was not there for me when I needed her. It is only every once in a lifetime that you meet someone who you can connect with on more than one level. She is vibrant, beautiful and determined. She allows me the comfortability to be myself. Beth is always there to give me that extra push I may need and believes in everything I do. I am so blessed to have such a great person in my life. - Bre, Community Experience Manager
We've been friends for 4 years
I love that Carrie's endless encouragement and genuine love for people. She's always there when I need her (at the moment literally because we room together), and she pushes me to be a better person. Whether it's drinking coffee together late at night or finding a new place to eat in the city, she makes life more fun and exciting and I couldn't imagine going through college without her! - Courtney, Marketing Intern
Meagan...Meg to most.
We’ve been friends since high school...so forever.
We have experienced a lot of life together, being friends for as long as we have. She knows me better than most. I know I can always count on her support and honest advice. She's also hilarious. I don't know what I would do without her, and I am so grateful she's in my life. - Lauren, Production Manager
We hope you have a Galentine's Day filled with friends, wine, and even more memories to cherish! Share some love for your bestie in our comments below.
