One month of 2012 is already coming to a close and I don’t know where the time is going to! A new month is nearly upon us: February. It’s the month of love, the month of Valentine’s Day. All the single ladies put yo’ hands up! I tend to think of Valentine’s Day as a “Hallmark Holiday”, but others view it as a historical day… or as a day of unrestricted, sappy no-holding-back romance. Like some of you, I’m usually my own Valentine… sitting at home alone eating an entire box of heart-shaped chocolates in the dark while watching “The Way We Were”. I think I like it that way though.
The month of February is also the month of Family Day, because you don’t see them enough! I’m kidding, mostly. If you need an escape from your family, come visit one of our showhomes to find out how we have the [BEST] homes in Calgary. As we’ve posted over the past few weeks, now is a great time to move into a new Cedarglen home. So whether you spend the day with your actual family or treat it as an extra day to catch up on rest and soaps, make sure to take advantage of the extra day off.
February is a fairly slow month in Calgary and events are few and far between compared to other months… but we’ve rounded up a few for you that are worth your time in checking out. Did we miss an event? Post it in the comments below and share it with our readers!
