This weekend my favorite bride-to-be and I headed to the Wedding Show at the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum. Wedding bells were definitely in the air as hundreds of brides and their wedding parties were given the opportunity to meet with over 150 caterers, photographers, event rental specialists, salons, DJs, wedding venues, transportation companies and bakeries among the unique backdrop of antique vehicles.

Boiling Springs Tavern, for those of you not familiar with this great restaurant in Boiling Springs. Before leaving Boiling Springs, make a quick stop at the Village Artisans Gallery to either wonder in awe or purchase some beautifully crafted paintings, glass works, jewelry, and more. Next stop, a 15 minute drive to Potato Road to Meadowbrooke Gourds to find everything you ever imagined made from a gourd. Finish off the day with a coffee and a Strawberry Nutella Crepe at Helena's Chocolate Cafe and Creperie back in Carlisle.
All done in an afternoon before the arrival of a foot of snow! Makes the early arrival of guests not quite so bad and on top of it all you get in a great lunch, some good shopping, beautiful scenery, and dessert!

I love dark chocolate. Love it. In the past two weeks, I've visited Macris Chocolates twice. When I go to fancy chocolate stores, which isn't often, I usually just go with what I know I like, dark chocolate covered pretzels. Macris must have over 100 varieties of chocolate so I decided in addition to the pretzels I would try something else...so it came down to the dark chocolate raisin clusters. Wow! Amazing! Each cluster is the perfect ratio of raisins and chocolate. The sweet raisins paired with the rich, smooth chocolate is delightful. If you go to Macris make sure you try them.

Miss Ruth's Time Bomb in Carlisle along with some stick it notes, including ones I had in my drawer from the Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau. She posted this picture on Facebook to thank me for her care package and was surprised to see the "Found It" notes right in the middle.
My niece Aleena wasn't the only one to receive Valentine's Day packages. I also sent out a few packages with great scarves from the clothesVine and a vintage clear acrylic purse from Miss Ruth's Time Bomb. It may be the middle of winter but there are still great things to FIND in Carlisle, the heart of Cumberland Valley!
