Ferndale has its fair share of lovebirds, so we decided to check in with a few of them before Valentine's Day and ask them to share relationship and date night secrets.
Today, we take a closer look at what makes Ferndale residents Sonya and David Mastick so sweet.
How long have you been together?
Together for 19 years and married for 16 and 1/2.
What’s the secret to a successful and happy relationship?
Honoring each others differences, always showing one another lots of respect and rarely take anything too seriously.
What famous couple would you compare yourselves to?
Dezi Arnaz and Lucille Ball. My husband is a bit more grounded and waits in the wings to see what new hijinks I'm about to get myself into and I usually take him down with me. hahaha
Why did you settle in Ferndale, and how long have you lived here?
We are both musicians so it made sense to be in the middle of it all, so to speak. It's a great town for networking and is rich with artists and creative people so we couldn't see ourselves living anywhere else really.
What’s your favorite romantic night out in Ferndale and why?
When we have no specific plans. There are so many great things to do that after dinner we just walk around and see what we run into. There are so many places that have fantastic desserts, coffee, cocktails and live entertainment that keeping your plans open is always the best plan for Ferndale.
