Happy Valentine's Day! & Follower Love Giveaway WINNER!


Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I know there are a lot of folks who HATE this holiday with a passion but I've always had a bit of a warped idea of it. I never have viewed it as a purely romantic love only holiday. For me it has always been more about giving a special treat to the people who enrich my life with their love or friendship. My kids, my friends, my extended family and of course my very own hero, the hubs.

I could share a tale of a Valentine's Day spent sick in bed at my best friends' house watching Disney and eating chocolate that hurt my throat. Or how I would always put extra conversation hearts with the phrase "Kiss Me" in the cards for my elementary school crushes. Even the one where I cried my eyes out because my the guy I was in love with had broken up with me two weeks earlier and I was stuck sharing an apartment with him (fortunately he came to his senses and we've been married for more than a decade). I do NOT hate Valentine's Day at all. My dad still sends me a sweet card every year and even though no one ever asked me to dance at the junior high Valentine's dance I understand that the heart of the holiday... as commercial as it truly is... is to keep your heart open to love in all its forms.

This past week we all had fun with the Follower Love Giveaway Hop. The response here has blown my mind. For every two followers I've more than doubled my following. If you were only here to win loot I'm totally okay with you removing me from your blogroll. ;) What had me getting a little sniffle-y this morning was all of the kind comments and praise many of you left. You didn't have to say anything but many of you did and your kind words of encouragement and letting me know what you liked really warmed my heart. I hope to always keep this blog a comfortable, reader friendly place without being stuffy or snooty. Sometimes though that also makes it seem like no one likes what I write here. I can't afford lots of giveaways and I'm a slower reader than most but I love sharing me passion for reading and all things paranormal/supernatural with you all.

Okay, enough of me blabbering on. I've got a tot who needs lunch!

The winner of the Follower Love Giveaway Hop is... Mary of BookHounds!

Congrats Mary! I've sent an email your way so you can claim your prize.

Thank you again to everyone who entered the giveaway and for making my day brighter as I read through all of the comments added on the form. When I have a little more time I'm gonna have to check out all of your blog links too! Have a super Valentine's Day, whether you're curling up with a book boyfriend or the real deal, have a girl's night planned or just dinner with your kiddos. XOXO -- Rhi
