Thanks to everybody who came out to help us celebrate our second anniversary at Hard Times Café in Woodbridge. We could definitely feel the love as we spent a fantastic evening with our Prince William Living family!

Speaking of love, that is where our thoughts often turn in February. What better time to talk about weddings? Learn how couples can find the perfect “big day” venue and vendors right here in Prince William, in Saying ‘I Do’ to Prince William, Virginia by Audrey Harman.

To keep the love going all year round, don’t miss PWC Mom’s Kristina Schnack Kotlus in this month’s Family Fun, where she gives tips on little ways to regularly show how much you care. While still in a blissful state, learn about the joy Manassas Chorale brings to audiences throughout the world in On A High Note: Lifting Voices and Spirits in the Manassas Chorale, by contributing writer Lisa Collins-Haynes.

After filling your soul with music, fill your mind with knowledge in Stephanie Tipple’s Giving Back: Prince William Library Foundation Raises Awareness. Find out how the Prince William Library Foundation supports our library system’s efforts to serve the community with educational and fun programming.

Then, it is time to fill your stomach.  In Local Flavor Val Wallace introduces us to the homemade dishes and warm welcome that make Bella Vita an award-winning eatery.  Save some room for dessert, because Olivia Overman also visits The Aubergine Chef, Jason Shriner, as he whips up creative cakes and pies, and shares how he teaches others to do the same.

Don’t worry about the calories. Jennifer Rader tells you how to jump and climb them off at Urban Evolution, in an interview with owner Salil Maniktahla. Learn how he and his wife started this unique business—a parkour gym—in Manassas. Also off the beaten path is this month’s Destinations, as Carla Christiano explores our unique local history in Buckland: Battling for the Future. You’ll also want to investigate our monthly columns, learning how to afford college in Your Finances, about Prince William’s signature style in Home & Hearth and how to care for your heart in Health and Wellness. Round it off with ideas for romantic outings in Discover Prince William and your monthly dose of laughter in Tambourines and Elephants. We think you’ll *heart* it all as much as we do!
