Galentine’s Day is here, and as always, it’s a time for celebrating friendships and enjoying quality time with your closest girlfriends.

Olympic gymnast Simone Biles recognized the assignment and acted accordingly. This week, the gymnast celebrated the season of love with a group of her closest friends. The night—as any Galentine’s celebration should—included chocolate-covered strawberries, a handful of other sweets and festive beverages.

Plus, it involved some aptly styled themed outfits. Biles, like many of her other friends, was dressed for the occasion. She showed up to the sweet event in a white knit sweater with red hearts stitched in rows throughout.

Several of the other women showed up dressed in pink and red—classic Galentine’s season shades. The group put on matching white slippers with red hearts and posed for a sweet photo to commemorate the evening.

“galentines 💌🏹☁️,” Biles captioned an Instagram carousel that she shared from the gathering.

“the best time with the best gals,” one of her friends gushed of their night in the comment section.

“Same time next year?” another proposed.

We always love to see Biles enjoying herself outside of the gym, particularly given how hard she works when she’s in it. The seven-time Olympic medalist has her eyes set on a third Olympic bid this July at the 2024 summer games in Paris. With that goal in mind, we’re glad to see the athlete has a strong support system behind her to cheer her on along the way.
