Ahhh….L’Amour! C’est mon favori! Everything is red and pink, roses are abundant, we blush a little more, and we are reminded once again of that first tingly, giddy sensation when your current love was little more than a sigh-worthy crush! Unless you’re me, then you use the opportunity to pull elaborate pranks on your dear guy, such as the hijinks of ’08, which found me filling his entire car with red and pink balloons on a very cold night while he was working and attaching a pin to the door handle with a note saying, ‘Pop your way in!’ Again I say, ahhh….L’Amour! Strange, sometimes cruel L’Amour!
No matter how you slice (or, ehem, pop) it, Valentine’s Day is the BEST! Even if you’re happily unattached and free as a bird, I still think it’s the most fun thing ever to pick a friend and ask him or her, ‘Will you be my Valentine?’
There are still 24 days until Valentine’s Day arrives, but we know you like to plan special surprises to spoil your better halves ahead of time, so we wanted to tell you how WE plan to spoil YOU for the occasion!
On Saturday, February 14th, we have an extra-special date night painting event planned just for you and your sweetie pie!
We are going to paint ‘Keep It Flowing’, a brand new series by mastermind and artist-extraordinaire Lindsey! It comprises two paintings that are oh so cute and absolutely perfect for the wine lover (and let’s face it, folks. If you’re reading this blog, I surmise that you’re a whimsy fan, and therefor a burgeoning sommelier)! These two paintings are designed to flow seamlessly from one canvas to the second one, giving you and your darling an opportunity to work together and create your own special love-language through the medium of paint! Wouldn’t you like to say that you bonded and were reminded of what an incredible team you are together on Valentine’s Day 2015? I would, that’s like 800 times better than a box of chocolates!
As always, you and yours are welcome to steer your own path and create something entirely different!
So now I ask, will you be our Valentine? We wanted to ask now before your dance card got too full!
If I’ve peeked your interest, I highly suggest you head on over to our calendar and register yourselves to join us for ‘Keep It Flowing’ on Saturday, February 14th! Then, grab some Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory goodies and bring them inside!
Stay warm in this suddenly chilly weather, friends!
