February 2013: Editor's Note

Top 7 Reasons to Love February
This is and always has been my favorite holiday. I usually take the day off and celebrate with a trip to Walt Disney World. It’s also Ashton Kelley’s birthday (our Director of Sales), so if you see her, wish her a happy one. Imagine having to share your birthday with a groundhog every year. Poor girl.
2.Super Bowl XLVII
That’s 47 for all of you non-Romans out there. This year it’s in New Orleans… and every sports fan’s living room. Break out the Budweiser and nachos, because it’s acceptable to cheat on your New Year’s resolutions while you watch San Francisco and Baltimore duke it out.
3.Four Legged Friends
It’s CH2’s fourth annual pet issue starring your furry friends. If you entered your pet in our contest, you can find his/her photo somewhere between pages 54-62. Our winner Belle is looking for a home, and we hope that being our cover girl helps her cause.
4.It’s the shortest month of the year.
Not having a good month? No worries—it’s the one with the fewest number of days, so it will be over before you know it.
Yes, it’s a Hallmark holiday, designed to pump some cash into restaurants, jewelry stores and flower shops. Who cares! Play along. Do it for L.O.V.E.
6.Only 38 Days…
Until Daylight Savings Time begins again: March 10. Hurray!
7.The Social Calendar
The Lowcountry begins its ascent out of hibernation with fundraisers and community events like the Chamber Ball, Cooks & Books and the Heart Ball. Get ready locals. Once Presidents’ Day weekend hits, the season has officially begun.
Let the February festivities commence!
