February 13th is GALENTINE’S DAY: time to celebrate.

Grab your favorite people pals, and give a peek at Maine artists while you take in some pink tree art by Tessa G. O’Brien, pink moon photography by Peter Ralston, and pink-hued sculpture by Simon van der ven.

Once you’re full of art inspo, turn to the taste senses and grab some Parisian chocolates while you watch the latest El Ray: Vincente Fernandez on Netflix.

Jaime Camil is muy caliente!

Gina Gomez, who gave us the El Ray recommendation, says: You're welcome.

How will you be celebrating Galentine’s Day? Comment below and let us know your plans.
