Whip out the margaritas, because August 1 is National Girlfriend Day. As females, we have many roles in our lifetime and being a significant other and a good friend are just a mere few. If you’re one or if you’re both, it’s a day dedicated to appreciating us females and the everyday impact we have and that those have on us.
Show your SO or group chat some love, with these quotes to celebrate the holiday.

“One friend with whom you have a lot in common is better than three with whom you struggle to find things to talk about. We never needed best friend gear because I guess with real friends you don’t have to make it official. It just is.” — Mindy Kaling
