February Weekend Events: Love Overflowing 02/25-27

As February, also known as “The Love Month”, comes to an end, another season begins. You may not have been into the “Lovie-Dovie” stuff too much, and that’s ok, but you know the old saying, “It is better to give than to receive”, well it is true! And, it does make you feel better to help out others and maybe even get your mind off of your own troubles. Come on…we all have them, troubles I mean!

So this weekend has some opportunities for Fun and Family-Friendly times, as well as, some super Skiing events!

Where ever you are, let that sparkle in your eyes shine and give beautiful smiles…basically let your heart show Love Overflowing!

Thanks and Pass it On!
