Valentine’s Day at the O-Bar-O
Everyone celebrates Valentine’s Day a little bit differently. It is a time for amore! To renew all those warm fuzzies you get for your significant other. A way to remind them how important they are and you would be lost without them. Well, Mike certainly might be lost….If you are part of the majority you might buy a card, chocolates or even some red roses for the love of your life. Years ago Mike and I decided to forgo the cards and flowers on Valentine’s Day and go for something out of the ordinary. Yea, sometime we do dinner at a nice restaurant (Mahogany Grill is a good one for this in downtown) but mostly it’s a weekend to kick back and enjoy nature, with each other! As a general rule of thumb all of our lives are so busy we sometimes forget to stop and smell the roses. (I know, I used the pun) That is if we roses for Valentine’s Day, right? So the question is what would you do at the O-Bar-O if you were here for Valentine’s Day? Well, I know it wouldn’t be shoveling snow, unless you are into that kinda thing. A little kinky if you ask me! We have had a decent amount of snow this winter so instead of shoveling what about trying out the snowshoes at the office for a trip around the property. It’s only about 3’ deep on the way to the river at this point. Not too bad! Cruise around and try to determine what animal left that print in the snow. No cheating, we all know what Peanut’s prints look like and they aren’t big enough to be a mountain lion. After forging your own path with the snowshoes a nice warm soak in the hot tub down by the river as you listen to the river gurgle seems prudent. Now that you are all warm and relaxed snuggle up with your favorite person or furry beast, next to the fire with an assortment of your favorite movies out our library, of course hot chocolate would help to sooth that spot. Don’t fall asleep just yet…you have all those movies to watch, remember? If you are up for more adventure there is a great sleigh ride, skiing or even dog sledding.
We here at the O-Bar-O wish each and every one of you a happy and healthy Valentine’s Day weekend. It doesn’t matter what you do just so long as you spend it with your true love and CHOCOLATE!
