Valentine’s Day is a little under a month away, and even though some of you will wait until Feb. 13 to plan a special evening with that special someone, some of you probably would appreciate a little bit of advance notice on Valentines-related happenings.
I also realize that some of you aren’t going to celebrate Valentine’s Day at all for one reason or another.
For those of you that will be celebrating, and are looking for a little inspiration, there are several Valentine’s-related items on the list this week. For those of you who aren’t into the whole cupid thing, there’s probably something for you below as well.
Either way, here’s what’s new for this week. Enjoy.
