Valentine Celebration Has Commenced!



Happy Valentine's Week! I love Valentine's Day because it basically covers all of my favorite things....love and romance, chocolates, flowers, and going out to a chichi restaurant for a gourmet meal. It's my perfect holiday. After 20 years of marriage, my husband knows the way to my heart...yellow roses, chocolate truffles, a dinner out to my favorite Cambodian restaurant, and a romance novel (or 2)!!!

To start off this week with a bang, Penelope is giving away some beautiful, heart-shaped chocolate truffles from Old Naples Chocolate and am Amazon gift card. (There will be two winners chosen today). Here's how to enter the contest....

Tomorrow I'll be posting my review of The Untamed Bride, Wednesday is the Most Romantic Beard contest (with another giftcard give-away), Thursday is the Most Romantic Hero Quiz (with book give-away), and Friday is another review. All winners will be announced on Sunday.

I would love to hear how all of you are celebrating VD this week (hee hee...I used to work in a flower shop, and my boss would get so pissed off when we wrote VD on the order slips instead of Valentine's Day...seriously, who has time for that??). Let me know!

Love, kisses and cupid's arrows,
Penelope

Does anyone get gems for Valentine's Day??? I have a nice ring collection going on, and the next one up is topaz or aquamarine. Don't think hubby is leaning toward jewelry this year...too bad!

I love the sparkly jewels but I think I'm going to get a really beautiful bouquet of flowers if I know my husband and his amazing florist. Also a little hand-made Valentine from my 4 year old - I'll keep that forever!

Penelope said...

Hi Lydia! I love flowers...in fact, I used to be a florist many years ago. The best valentine's are hand-made by the kids...so sweet!

Hi Penelope,
I love flowers too, red roses are my favourite. I have several variety of red roses growing in my garden. Hubby isn't all that romantic, might get a meal at the local Chinese restaurant if I'm lucky.

Regards
Margaret

Hi Margaret! I am impressed with your gardening abilities...roses are tough to grow. Last time I tried to grow some yellow ones I had a Japanese beetle fest going on!

Hope you have a fun holiday!

I bought my own red roses and chocolate :), but dh made a reservation at a special restaurant for me--with a gluten-free menu. Now that's love.

Penelope said...
