I love Valentine’s Day. I don’t know if it’s because I associate it with the start of girl scout cookie season or because getting fresh flowers is a dream or because it’s right after my birthday and I’m a sucker for all things pink and red. BUT, it’s my favorite day to celebrate the people we love. Did you know my favorite candy company of all time is Sugar Wish Girl? They have the best Valentine’s Day treats. They are a LOCAL, woman owned business and they make ordering a breeze … oh and did I mention their packaging is absolutely gorgeous? I highly recommend you check them out for your Valentine’s Day candy needs. I love showering my friends and past clients with their products when I receive a referral. My business wouldn’t be what it is without all of the amazing referrals I receive throughout the year, and it’s my small way of saying a very “sweet thank you!”
With that being said, let’s get back to the Valentine’s Day festivities around Denver. This year, V-Day is on a Friday, which means there’s tons of fun happening around the city. Let’s dive in, shall we?

I am in love with the Ramble Hotel. It’s such a great spot with some of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. I love the vibes (so chic!) and would spend every night in that hotel if I could – hello staycation! Check out their Valentine’s Day celebration this year! I hear there’s a fantastic meal with even better drink pairings. Cheers!
