6 Ways to Celebrate Love in Lubbock

It’s hard to believe the day of love is just around the corner. We all know the feelings this holiday can bring, the excitement, the doom and everything in between. However, over the years, Valentine’s Day has evolved as people have started to make it their own. Shout out to you, “Galentines.” This has me asking, why do we only have to celebrate love in relation to well, relationships? Why can’t Valentine’s day be a celebration of not only who we love, but also what we love? This year, I want to celebrate not only the people I love, but the things I love as well, including something that I live and breathe every day, my city and my home -Lubbock, Texas.

So, whether you find yourself with a special someone, your favorite people or your place, here are just a few ways to take it all in and celebrate love in Lubbock:
