Welcome to my stop on the
With Love, Valentine's Day Blog Hop!
My love of romance began at age of eleven when my Nanny (referred to lovingly as 'Nanns') slipped me a couple True Romance comic books, along with my first romance, and it was love at first sight. Before long, I was writing my own stories and have been doing so for over three decades.
I am a hopeless romantic ... always have been, always will be!
Although Valentine's Day is purportedly a day for 'lovers' I personally enjoy viewing it as a day to reconnect with the one's you love, whether they are your partners, friends, family, etc.
I believe letter writing is becoming a lost art, replaced with e-mails, texts, and posts on the walls of Facebook. I don't know about you, but when I receive an actual letter or card in the mail, it makes my day. There is a nostalgia in the act of reading anothers personally penned words and sentiments.
I've been cultivating a little known hobby of mine recently. Over the years I've been collecting love letters from WWI and WWII but I'm open to letters from any era. With a letter being the only way to communicate with a loved one, the detail and emotion contained within these long letters is rich in its intimacy. Reading these long lost letters is an experience unto itself.
Regardless if you are in a romantic relationship or not, use the day to tell someone you care about how much they mean to you! Pick up a pen ... pick up card, or better yet, make your own Valentine ... and WRITE them a little note (or a long one)! Sure, you can send an e-mail if that is the only way to connect with them BUT if you can write something, it's my suggestion you do just that.
I know there are tons of blogs to visit, so I won't keep you long. I'm happy you stopped by and if you'd like a chance to win a PDF copy of my e-book, Skin Deep, an erotic contemporary novella, as well as a $10.00 Gift Certificate to Secret Cravings Publishing, leave a comment below to my question ...
When was the last time you physically wrote a letter to someone near and dear to your heart?
If you had a choice, would you rather receive a love letter via e-mail or one penned on paper?
BE SURE TO LEAVE YOUR E-MAIL AT THE END OF THE COMMENT!
