Happy February, love birds!

There is something on this list for everyone…
1.) Vineyard trip.
There are so many great wineries to explore in the area. Pick a vineyard you haven’t been to before and take in the gorgeous views, fresh air and delicious wine. It’s the perfect atmosphere to relax & re-connect. Some vineyards have live music, most are pet friendly, and all are filled with a delightful ambiance.

2.) Coffee Date.
This is probably one of my favorite pass times. And we are so fortunate to live in an area that has so many great coffee shops. From Shoe’s Cup and Cork in Downtown Leesburg, to The Espresso Bar in Old Town Winchester, and PLENTY of other shops in between coffee is always a great way to spend a date. Grab a cup and have a conversation about your next vacation, or play a board game. And like the vineyards, many of these quaint places have live music.
3.) Catch a Flick
Movies are always. good choice. Cozy seats, snacks to share, and plenty of snuggle screen time. Sure you can watch Netflix and chill, but catching a movie on the silver screen is a fun and laid back activity for you and your sweetheart. When you’ve had a stress-filled week and want to spend time together, sharing a box of candy and bowl of popcorn, head to the theater… If you head to the Alamo Drafthouse, you can even make it a dinner & a movie date in one.
4.)Take a Hike.
is still a chilly month around here, but the days can still be gorgeous. Whether it’s cold and snowy or sunny & 60
degrees, a perfect date would be a nice hike. We are lucky to live with the Blue Ridge Mountains around us. So get out there and take in the natural beauty. It’s good for you body & for your soul. Unplug and unwind with your love. Head up to Bear’s Den for take in the gorgeous views, or explore the third battle for Winchester. Head to Harpers Ferry for mountain hiking and history.
5.) Live Music
Fun, energizing, and exciting. Live music is always a fun way to spend a date night. Whether it’s an acoustic show or a rock out sesh, you are sure to have a good time. Music speaks to the soul, grab your babe and get out on the dance floor or sing along. For a few places to watch some great shows visit Talley Ho Theater or The Bight Box. Head a little further into Northern VA and check out Wolf Trap!
I cant wait to hear about all your fun date nights!! Until next time <3 Stephanie
