Love in Folsom

Somehow, we have already made it to the middle of February! If all of you readers see this in time, here is your official reminder that Valentine’s Day is this Sunday the 14th and it is not too late to pick up a card or a gift (we suggest our giftshop!) for your special someone. The origins of Valentine’s Day or even the older celebration of Lupercalia obviously does not relate to Folsom so instead of going into the history of the holiday, I want to share with you some of my favorite photos and pieces in our collection that represent Valentine’s Day at a local level. Enjoy a look at some of Folsom’s couples and the upcoming long weekend!
