Valentine’s Day might just be the most romantic day of the entire year, but it can be hard to celebrate when V-Day falls during a weekday! Brides need their beauty sleep!

(all of the links are below - so planning is a no-brainer!)
Wishing you a very Happy Valentine's Day!

TWO. Wine Tasting at Home. If you can't make it to a wine tasting with wine expert Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan in Italian Countryside or Napa Valley, bring it into your living room with Amazon Prime. The Everyday Guide to Wine featuring Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, (the 4th woman in the US to achieve the prestigious Master of Wine - yas, sister!), brings the world of fine wine into your home - no Ubers required! Stop by Total Wine for an amazing selection from buttery chardonnay to robust malbec and beyond and stop by Kroger's deli on your way home from the office and explore the excellent selection of gourmet cheese from Murray's!
