This past Valentine’s Day--instead of our usual fancy dinner out--my husband and I took a couple’s pottery class at the recently opened Lineta Pritchard Pottery Studio.

Our area is a very popular spring break destination for families with school-aged children.

A gal-pal getaway in Myrtle Beach is the perfect way to celebrate! First thing’s first: what the heck is “Galentine’s Day,” anyway? Well, it’s a pseudo-holiday created by fictional TV character Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation. This “holiday” started in 2010 on an episode appropriately called “Galentine’s Day,” in which Leslie gathered her girlfriends on February 13 to celebrate friendship and brunch with waffles.
