Valentines in the Valley
Snowmegeddon may have arrived here in the Fraser Valley but don’t let that distract you from an important day coming up this week: Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day is this coming Thursday Feb 14th. A day set aside to show a little love.
Some may focus on just one sweetheart but sometimes it’s good to remember the other loves in your life.
Here are a few ideas of what to get up to this Valentine’s Day in the Fraser Valley…weather it’s with your sweetheart, your BFFs, your friends, your kids, your entire family or your co-workers.
Tea for Two, Coffee for Three or Cheers to Beers
-Beers or sodas or coffee or whatever. Why not plan a little meet-up with friends, family or co-workers at a time that is typically not busy. You can hit up one of the local coffee shops, breakfast spots or breweries in the valley mid-morning or mid-day or at a time when it’s not packed. There are so many local gems with great food and amazing beverages. Not sure which eatery to choose, let Tourism Abbotsford help.
Enjoy an Experience
-Our activities don’t always need to revolve around food. Why not plan a hike in this winter wonderland, or a ski or snowshoeing adventure, visit a local attraction/ museum/gallery, theater. You can check out Tourism Abbotsford website for ideas or plan your own party or games night.
-Some of us may LOVE to cook but that doesn’t mean we don’t LOVE having to not cook. Book a reservation at a local eatery …that is … if they still have reservations available. Otherwise order in and enjoy dinner in the comfort of your own home. Why not try that new dinner delivery option Skip the Dishes.
For The Love of Agriculture
-Speaking of Valentines Day and LOVE did you know this week is I LOVE AGRICULTURE WEEK at the EcoDairy. There are various workshops and events planned throughout the week that you don’t want to miss. Check it out.
Show Some Love
-Most importantly, don’t focus so much on the things to do, places to eat or gifts to buy that you fail to share the love. Whether it’s your sweetheart, your friends, your coworkers, your family, or whoever… share what you love about them. Maybe write a note, bake a treat, send an e-mail sharing some love. It feels good to show some love and it also feels good to receive some love.
And so we end this BLOG post sharing some love with all of you…our supporters, encouragers, team members, sponsors, members…THANK YOU.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
