"Loving is not just looking at each other, it’s looking in the same direction." - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944), French writer, poet, aristocrat, journalist, and pioneering aviator.

Valentine's Day is almost here! If you haven't made plans yet, we're here to help - just read on for some dinner and event suggestions. The Sunshine Boys opens Friday night (there's an odd couple for you!), the incredible Dan Tyminski brings his bluegrass band to our area, and another wonderful pair - wine and chocolate - can be found at our four wineries all weekend long. We hope that like this pair of adorable raccoons in Kent Sweigert's photo, you and your love are looking in the same direction. Happy Valentine's Day, and Happy Wanderings!
