Have a Happy (Local!) Valentine’s Day!

Made-in-Philly stationery and V-Day dates.

It’s almost here!

And whatever your feelings have been in the past about this particular holiday — whether you’ve always loved it, or haven’t ever really cared much about it, single or coupled — we’re guessing that this time around, with that sparkler on your finger, you probably can’t help yourself. You probably want to celebrate somehow, with your now husband-to-be.

To help you out, some of my very talented colleagues have put together awesome roundups that’ll help you celebrate both fabulously — and locally! First, check out lifestyle editor Lauren McCutcheon’s roundup of local Valentine’s Day cards — all handmade in Philly, and none of them cookie-cutter. Trust me, you’re going to want them all.

And then, health and fitness editor Jenna Bergen has put together eight perfect V-Day dates — from dance and cooking classes to yoga retreats — all aimed at keeping you healthy and active, together. Which is perfect with that Big Day coming up, yes?

Happy Valentine’s Day!
