SHARE THE LOVE: Dallas Galentine Luncheon 2022

Her Texas recently hosted our very first in-person event (ever!) with 70 of our closest new girlfriends at the beautiful and historic Alexander Mansion in Dallas.

The mission of the Love Yourself Luncheon was to celebrate Galentine’s Day, but more importantly, why 2022 is the year to put our wellness and self-care first

Upon checking in, attendees were invited to explore the mansion which was originally built in 1930 and remains one of the last original architectural structures from that time period on Ross Avenue.

Our emcee (and recent grad from SMU), Kayla Griffis, kicked off the festivities, which included lunch and informal networking.

One of the many reasons we love our community is how beautifully diverse it is. Representation matters, especially when it comes to accurately sharing the stories and perspectives of the women who live, work and do business here. We are committed to ensuring that all of our events, partnerships and content stay true to these values.

Before we began the program, we asked everyone to take a moment to write a brief Galentine-inspired love note to their 15-year-old selves.

We wrote our heartfelt notes on beautiful cards created by seed vision + co whose mission is to make card giving more sustainable and honor love, beauty, and art. The cards were unique as they were perforated with a postcard on the left side. The founder, Dana Mohrman, has graciously offered a special code (LOVETX22) to use the next time you’re looking for a beautiful card.

Once everyone completed their notes, we collected all of the cards and distributed them randomly as the ladies exited the event. The goal was to share our love notes with one another to demonstrate that we all need a little love, no matter our age.

We then welcomed Her Texas founder Jasmin Brand to share the mission of the organization and the importance of supporting local women entrepreneurs. She gave a brief introduction to our special guest speaker, Dr. Lyndsey Harper who is also the founder of tech platform Rosy.

Rosy is a first-of-its-kind platform and resource to connect the 84 million women in the US with sexual problems with hope, community, and research-backed solutions to improve their lives.

Lyndsey is a steadfast champion for women’s health and especially the conversation surrounding sexual health and wellness. She shared a little bit of her entrepreneurial journey as a first-time tech entrepreneur, but she also used our time together to talk frankly and authentically about our bodies and why it’s so important to feel comfortable doing so.

We also got an opportunity to meet her trusty sidekick (and puppet) Violet Vulva (yep, you read that correctly)!
