"I’ve had many loves in my life and each one, for whatever reason passed, enriched me, made me better, stronger, more me. But there is one love that has never left and is my very heart: @columbiaroom. Two years ago it opened in its new space, making it officially seven-years-old in total. It is dear to me and so is every person who has crossed its threshold. Happy Anniversary, Happy Valentines Day, Columbia Room! May our love never wane! #anniversary"
