San Ramon Valley Events – February 2014

It’s February, and that means that Valentine’s Day is just a few days away. I used to think that Valentine’s Day was just for couples to do something fun and take a moment to appreciate each other. I still believe that part is true, but now that I am a family man with two daughters, I have come to view this day as an opportunity to share your love with more than just your sweetheart. To me it’s about taking that time and making that effort to show all of our loved ones how much we care about them and appreciate having them in our lives. It’s the people around us who care for us, and love us that make this life great. Don’t forget to take the time on Valentine’s day, or any other day for that matter, to share your appreciation with the ones you love.

Have a great month. Enjoy some of these great events and I hope to see you all out there soon!
