Ok, Ok many people feel that Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday. That’s fine but don’t ruin it for the rest of us. I do not particularly care about the whole “gift receiving and giving” aspect. Its the “spirit” I LOVE! Its a day when everyone just LOVES. Isn’t that what we all want? Is just to love and be loved?
So, for the spirit of the holiday I have put together your Valentine destinations on Cape Ann! I will update as I find new places! Book your destination today!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
I’ll take “Things I Never Knew Until Yesterday” for $800, Alex.
“The little paper banner that protrudes from the foil wrapper of a Hershey’s Kiss”
Ummmm…..”What is a NigglyWiggly”
Insert cheer of the crowd.
Seriously, though, did you ever know that?
I did a bit of research and many sites confirm that is indeed the name, but sadly I found no information telling me so on Hershey’s own website. So….. who knows?
And…from an article on abc.com, I learned this:
- 70 million Hershey’s Kisses are produced everyday at the factory;
- The machines run 24 hours a day, seven days a week;
- Enough Kisses are produced annually to form a line more than 300,000 miles long.
Hi Joey,I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know about an event I’m hosting with another local business on Friday night and all day Saturday.My name is Lyndsay and I make terrariums and other potted items, which I call lynzariums. I sell these to a lot of local businesses, Lula’s Pantry in Rockport, Willow Rest in Gloucester, have a booth at the Cape Ann Farmers Market during the season and do outdoor plantings for The Market in Annisquam every year. Last month I opened a planting studio in East Gloucester across from Beacon Marine, 186 East Main Street (Ken Gore’s art studio).My friend Jocelyn Pierce of Mayflour Confections will be joining me at the event, she has a commercial kitchen in Rockport and makes custom cakes and desserts for weddings and events.We will be hosting a pop up shop for Valentine’s Day, serving refreshments and selling terrariums, potted plants and succulents, cupcakes and a few other sweets. I’ve attached what we have been using on social media. I would love if you could help us spread the good word- and if you’re around, please stop in and say hello!All the best,Lyndsay and Jocelyn
It was quite a scene at Audrey’s flower shop last night when I stopped by to deliver Valentine Treats to dear friends working in the shop. The store was full of patrons picking up and placing last minute Valentine orders. Their phone was ringing off the hook, while designers were hustling around their stations creatively putting together dozens of gorgeous floral arrangements. My BFF Dee is, Audrey’s customer service/store manager. She remained busy working the phones taking orders, and scheduling Valentine deliveries throughout the North Shore, a task she had been doing all day. Thursday’s predicted snow storm and winter mess literally tried to put a bump in the road for Valentine deliveries on Thursday and Friday. But Dee, known to her friends and coworkers as, ” Ms. Organized,” and “Ms. Get It Done” kept Audrey’s “Operation Valentine”, running smoothly like red velvet frosting the past few days. Today the Audrey’s crew is back at it again, taking special care of all their “In The Doghouse” customers, with~ Forgive Me, I’m late & Love You Valentine Floral Arrangements!
No Confessions needed, call Audrey’s today and get yourself outta the doghouse!

Last night I had an origami class at The Hive, with a Valentine’s Day theme. Although I had a variety of models ready to teach, we ended up focusing on just making a rose, which is a somewhat complicated model. There were two other meetings going on in other rooms, from which we benefitted by getting spillover snacks!
We added origami leaves and a stem to the rose at the end, which you can partly see in this photo with David Brooks:
I will be teaching another class in March, although the date is yet to be determined. The theme is yet to be determined, but some possibilities are:
- boats and ships (not the typical newspaper sailboat – ones with more variety of shape, maybe some that float, but maybe also some with more detail but less functionality)
- Origami spirals (kind of abstract but really cool)
I’ll be back at The Hive for another origami class this Thursday!
I am still picking out exactly what models I will teach, but I will probably focus on Valentine’s Day-related models – depending on who comes, we will might make a heart bookmark, a rose, and maybe a gift box (a nice box with a lid from one sheet of paper, which we didn’t have time to make during the last origami class).
The rose and the box are more complex models, so we’ll have to see what the participants are ready to take on. I’ll have a few other models ready just in case. Also, I can try to accomodate specific requests, if someone wants to let me know ahead of time.
The class will be on Thursday, February 7, 7-9pm, $15 student/$20 adult. If possible, please register ahead of time, so we know how many plan for. Call 978.283.3889 or email email@example.com
