Celebrating Valentine's Day in the Inland Northwest

Valentine's Day is only a few days away, and love is in the air. There are many ways to celebrate this holiday dedicated to love. You may have a hot date with your TV and a box of chocolate, or you could be planning to enjoy a bottle of wine with friends. Possibly, your day will be filled with heart-shaped balloons, flowers, or if you're really lucky — diamonds.
