Looking outside today, it would appear the heavens decided it was a snuggle up to your loved one kind of mañana – which is curious since it’s Día del Amor y de la Amistad! Plus, we’ve just raced through Mardi Gras, the Olympics are in full swing, and we’ve made it US Presidents Day weekend which means 3-day fiesta in town!  So, snuggle up and let’s run down the weekend! Plus, don’t forget to save upcoming dates!
