February Weekend Events: Love Is In The Air 02/4-6

Welcome to February! This is the month dedicated to showing love by showering that special someone with all the LOVE that fills your heart! And as you give, it creates an atmosphere of happiness and joya virtual LOVE is in the Air!

Things always seem better when we can spread happiness and joy. Remember the old song, “What the World Needs Now, is Love Sweet Love, It’s the Only Thing that There’s Just Too Little Of”, it is so true! Our world would be a better place if that was practiced a little more, so I’ve made it my goal to show more happiness and pass it along. Will you join me and make the same commitment?

This weekend provides great opportunities to shower others with joy and happiness. I’m gonna grab it! Tell us how you shower others with love, we would love to hear all about it!
