Happy Valentines Day

20120214-033350.jpg Happy Valentines Day! Although this holiday can sometimes feel like the cheesy product of a marketing explosion, I think there is something rather spectacular about taking a day to step back and make sure you acknowledge love.

This year, we're keeping simple with a stroll downtown and a happy hour at one of our favorite spots, The Fairmont Olympic Hotel. Most people don't realize what a great HH spot this is. The atmosphere is obviously gorgeous, and the drinks are cheap. It's even a great spot to bring little Miles because the spacious lounge gives him a little room to roam if he gets antsy, not to mention that the three of us love the calamari. :).

So Ill be spending the evening sipping $4 happy hour wine and nibbling on calamari while digesting how lucky I am to have so much love in my life. Here's to love and taking the time to enjoy the ones you love and why you love them.
