If  you’re like me, I’m always left wondering why people celebrate Valentine’s Day. Are we not aware of the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre in 1929? Okay, maybe this is why I’m single. I’m actually okay with that. I devour birthday cake ice cream alone at a cafe, then I remember I’m lactose intolerant. I lead a pretty brilliant life. If you’re looking for something to do:

1. Heart 1

  • Dinner and Stargazing at Serenbe: The Farmhouse at Serenbe is hosting the finest seasonal local ingredients prepared by Chef Thaddeus Barton. Enjoy a three-course dinner, then be prepared for dessert. No, they don’t have red velvet cake…how about the night sky instead? Take hold of a hot drink and explore the wonders of the night sky using telescopes with astrophysicist Erin Bonning. Call 770-463-2610 to reserve your spot.

2. Heart 2

  • 14 Days of Chocolate at the Ritz-Carlton: Who says you have to enjoy chocolate with someone else? That is the most asinine statement I’ve ever heard. Chocolate is best enjoyed alone. Savor the flavor. The Ritz-Carlton understands this. They have an amazing, daily chocolate event happening now through Valentine’s Day Weekend. Each day they feature a different chocolate whether it’s eating it or simply getting a pedicure in it. Yep, you read that correctly. Want to attend? Check out their site for more info!

3. Heart 5

It’s Valentine’s Day in the Garden: Check out the Atlanta Botanical Garden this weekend. They’ve got a special event going on with drinks, fun eats, and great floral exhibits that are visually astounding. Click here for more information!

4. Heart 3

The Movies are Always Here for You: Okay, I’ve heard that people don’t like going to the movies alone. I love it. I escape from the real world really. And what better time to do this than this Valentine’s Day Weekend. While all of those couples are watching 50 Shades of romanticized BDSM, just sneak into the Spongebob movie and realize how much you and Squidward are alike. You’ll have fun, I promise.

 

Okay, I gave you options! Make this Valentine’s Day count. It doesn’t matter if you’re single, you’ve still got a great life to live and one day isn’t going to ruin that. Get out there and love yourself! Plus, we’ve got first dibs on the chocolate aisle on February 15th. See ya there! ;D
