Celebrating Love: Share, Remember, Cherish - Book Review and Giveaway

Very often when I think of Valentine's Day I think of flowers. And when I think of flowers I think of 1-800-flowers. I have received several of their bouquets over the years and have never been disappointed. They are truly gorgeous! You get the freshest, most beautiful flowers that arrive presented in a gorgeous manner so they are ready to brighten your home and your day.

So if there is anyone who knows about love it would have to be the founder of 1-800-flowers, Jim McCann. McCann has put together this beautiful collection of love stories that truly encompasses the many dementions of love. It's broken into the 4 seasons and also includes fun little facts about love.

The quotes, stories, and images in this book just remind you what love is all about. It's perfect for Valentine's Day! I am excited to curl up with my husband tonight and share some of these stories with him. The stories and quotes may have different meanings and elicit different memories from each couple reading it, but it all comes down to one thing... love is powerful.

This book is perfect for anyone. It touches on love in so many ways. Love between siblings, love between friends, love in a relationship. "Love is when there is only one ice pop left and your brother gives it to you." - Allison H.

This is one of my favorites.. and it can be found in this book... "Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made." - Robert Browning.
