The oldest Valentine card that is in existence today was written in 1450 by Charles of Orleans to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. With Valentine's Day coming up tomorrow, I wanted to share a few ideas for surprising someone special.
MAKE: This recipe for Red Velvet Baked Pancake with Honeyed Whipped Cream Cheese is perfect for Valentine's Day. Nothing says I love you like breakfast in bed for two!

ESCAPE: This year Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday which means there is a whole weekend that can be dedicated to your special someone. Here are a few ideas of special activities:
- Skating the Oval in downtown Halifax, followed up with hot chocolate at a local cafe.
- Snow boarding, skiing or snowshoeing for the day is a great way to spend some time both outdoors and with each other. Check out The M.A.R.C. for snowshoe rentals and trails just outside of Bridgewater.
- A romantic dinner at your favourite local restaurant. Many of Lunenburg's restaurants are open year round and have special menus just for Valentine's Day!
