Fun February: Blog Luv Fest

Pin It

Since Valentine's Day is in 2 weeks, let's have some fun!

I'm not a big Valentine's Day person. A card and some chocolate is enough for me. And someone else cooking for a night- but I'd use any excuse for that. Now that I'm a Mom, Valentine's Day has turned into another one of those holidays for kids. I help the girl with her Valentines and make cupcakes for her class. It's not so much about romance anymore. That doesn't mean we can't have fun with the day.

Over the next 2 weeks, I'll be posting special posts for Valentine's Day. Would you like to join me?

You can participate as much or as little as you'd like from February 1-14. Here are some ideas for posts:
  • Reviews of books or movies with a romantic or love theme
  • Valentine crafts
  • Valentine photos
  • lists of favorite love-themed books or movies (people love lists!)
  • love letters to your significant other, child, pet, etc
  • poems
  • a special romantic recipe
Get creative and come up with your own ideas! Then come back to this post or any post on book-a-rama featuring this button and leave a link to that post. Also please link to this post so everyone can find their way back here.


Feel free to use this button.

On Sunday February 7 and 14 (Valentine's Day, in case you didn't know), I'll post a Roundup of all those Valentine's related posts.

I hope you'll join me for the Blog Luv Fest. February is a blah month and I think everyone feels a little shack happy during the winter. Even if it's summer for you. 

Please post about this on your blog, Twitter, etc if you choose to join, or even if you don't :).

  9. Oooh! I love it. I am doing an Anti-Valentine's Day Theme for the Book List Meme next week. Just for a change from all of the V-day romance overload. :) But I will participate in this, too. I like that I don't have to post everyday. That rocks. I hope you come over and see what I come up with!
