Five Friday Faves {Valentine’s Edition}

Love is in the air (as in, I LOVE 3-day weekends!) — can you feel it, or are you mostly just feeling the sun beating down on the glorious 805? {Whatevs, El Niño}

Whether you are head-over-heels with your S.O., or just mostly in love with pizza and Netflix, there is something for everyone to lovingly embrace this weekend.  [Also, PSA: ObamaJam is coming at you this weekend, along with a double dose of traffic thanks to the LA Marathon.  So, pretty much, just stay in the 805 and you will be juuuuust fine :)]

5. #optoutside on this beautiful 3-day weekend. Head to the beach, escape to the mountains, go on a bike ride, try out a new hike, go camping… the options are endless here in the 805! And for that romantic touch, end it with a picnic and/or wine tasting. Picnics make for the perfect Valentine’s Day weekend date:)

[We mentioned a few local wine spots above and as for picnics, you can make your own DIY picnic or order one from The Grill on the Alley in Westlake – it’s amazing!] local-love-805-the-grill-on-the-alley01local-love-805-the-grill-on-the-alley02
