Swept Away Valentine's Day blog hop

So when's your Valentines Day? is it February 14th, or is it every day? I reckon mine is the latter. My DH shows me everyday in lots of ways he loves me. And for someone who very rarely (if ever) says the words that's so beautiful.

How do you get swept away?

I get a card, and often a present. He has a knack of finding great off the wall cards for every occasion, not just Valentine's Day. He always adds some witty and pertinent words, as well as his love and kisses. He's a romantic, but not overtly so. And that's fine with me.

We can show our love in so many ways. from a touch or a smile, to a diamond ring and a week on a desert island. Even a cuppa when you're snowed under with work is a symbol of loving and caring. and these things can happen at anytime. and flowers..oh yeah, but not for a special occasion, for just because. Gets me every time

One of the nicest and silliest Valentine's cards I got was a beautiful picture of roses. I recognized it. I was sure it'd been in my card box the day before. Sure enough as I said ohh thank you it's lovely. Dh confessed. He'd forgotten the date, and our daughter had reminded him.I giggled, because he looked so sheepish. I loved him all the more for being honest, and for the lovely dinner he cooked later.

So how about you, what do you like? Is it all geared around the one special day, or in your life is every day Valentine's day?

To celebrate love, and all that goes with it, I'm giving away an ecopy of one of my books to a commenter. That person will be chosen at the end of the blog, on 18th February. So be sure to leave your email address, which book you'd like (there's a list on my web page, ) and in what format.

Don't forget, to catch up with all the other great bloggers you can go to

I hope you all have a great day,

love R x


  1. Happy Valentines Day Raven :D

    We tell each other we love each other everyday, but he makes it a little special on valentines day with flowers :) he doesn't do cards so we don't bother with those.

    Hmmm...a copy of one of your books? Teaching Teacher looks good!


  2. My hubby tells me he he loves me every day, and shows it in a myriad of little things.
    We never buy into the whole big Valentines Day thing. It's how you are the rest of he year that matters :-)

  3. Happy Valentines Day to y'all! I'll be spending it alone, writing, and probably eating my weight in chocolate.

  4. Awww so cute. Today is my mom's birthday and she's my biggest love affair. Romantic love would be nice but Mom's love is the best :)

  5. TEACHING TEACHER for Kindle would be perfect--thank you so much!


  6. I love the little things everyday. Im not one for celebrating valentines. Thank you for the awesome hop and giveaway!!! :)

  7. I'm not a big Valentin's Day fan. I think a lot of people only buy things for show or because they feel pressured to.
