Celebrating Love: Share, Remember, Cherish (Book Giveaway - Closed)

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, 1-800-FLOWERS founder Jim McCann has released a new gift book -- Celebrating Love:  Share, Remember, Cherish.

This book--which is divided into four sections based on the unique stages of love--includes inspirational quotes, poignant love stories, facts about love and affection, and full-color illustrations.

I have the opportunity to give away copies of Celebrating Love to two lucky readers, but first I want to let you know about the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Valentine's Day "Love Note" contest.  This four-week contest encourages 1-800-FLOWERS.COM fans

  1. My favorite memory is my special needs son working so hard to make me a valentine.

  2. My favorite memory is the year my husband made me a candy bouquet by hot gluing VDay Reeses candies to boxes of sweethearts then the boxes onto rolls of sweet-tarts and sticking them in a vase. It was so...sweet! :)

  3. Hubby and I are going to Olive Garden tomorrow to avoid some of the crowd so we can have a peaceful, enjoyable afternoon together while the kids(teens) are home with grandma and relaxing without mom and dad around.

  4. Honestly, Valentine's Day is not a really big deal. We celebrate as a family. I have no special person in my life other than my mother, so I make it a point to celebrate for her sake.
