Birds splash in rain puddles, the Sierras are cloaked in powdery snow, and umbrellas are finally getting some use - this wet, wintry weather is perfect for snuggling up with the ones you love.

Sometimes an unexpected date night does wonders to reignite the spark in your relationship. Why not linger with your Valentine over a meal at Café Lafayette, a French café in Exeter? Or check out the happenings at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theatre in Fresno, where your dinner companions include the Good Company Players and the spectacular, song-filled fantasy that they create around you. If you’re art lovers, the iconic Frida Kahlo is the subject of a riveting traveling national exhibition at the Fresno Art Museum.

Everyone loves a good love story, like the one behind p.s. i love you too – a gift shop whose name was sparked by the phrase that ended each email and text sent between proprietor Mary Beth Shearson and her boyfriend. Today, she spreads the love in her small gift shop by offering items that remind people of the ones they adore most.

Speaking of passion, Ericka Trevino has turned her affinity for repurposing materials into a business – she and her husband run an event rental company specializing in minimalist, handmade, reclaimed wood furniture. And the love for others has inspired Helping One Woman organization to provide hands up to women who have fallen on hard times. 

If you’re still looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone, don’t forget to stop by Enjoy the Store in Visalia. We’ll help you select a crate full of treats that Cupid will be proud to deliver.

Planning to say “I do”? Check out our Wedding Section, with local vendors and ideas for making your big day unique and memorable.

Celebrate love, and enjoy!
