Love Your Neighbor!

Valentine’s Day is approaching. Again. In my experience, it’s a pretty polarizing holiday. Either you love it or you hate it.

I, for one, dread the tradition of overpriced roses, matching red outfits, and prix fixe dinner menus. But I wholeheartedly (*wink*) support any occasion to spread love!

This year, I’d like to help you love your neighbor. I’m giving away dozens of free treats, tagged with neighborly sweet nothings, to remind Petworth residents how much you care.

To get in on this Random Act of Neighborliness:

  1. Stop by Lulabelle’s Sweet Shop, the chic, newly remodeled candy shop at 847 Upshur St NW today (Saturday, February 9th!).

  2. Ask for the free Neighborly Love treats.

  3. Give the treats away!

  • Drop them into random neighbors’ mailboxes.

  • Welcome the family who just moved in across the street.

  • Make amends for stealing that shoveled parking spot after the last snowstorm.

However you choose to share them, you’ll be making our Petworth community stronger, closer and even more fun to live in!

A Lulabelle’s Bonus!
To sweeten the deal (*double wink*), Lulabelle’s is throwing in a drawing for a fancy Valentine’s Day basket!

What are you waiting for? Go spread some love!
