Love Is In The Air Blog Hop


Mr.C and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day. Early in our relationship money was tight and honestly we didn’t see the point in only celebrating our one day of the year. 🙂 But a few years ago when we lived in Singapore I entered a contest in a magazine and won a dinner for two and night at one of Singapore’s premier hotels. Kinda seemed silly to not go. 😆


The hotel suite was huge with gorgeous views over the city skyline. The strawberries and champagne on arrival didn’t hurt either. 🙂 Then we headed down to the restaurant to indulged in a nine course meal made especially for us by the head chef. Spoiled or what! And let’s not forget about the scrumptious breakfast in bed the next morning. For never having celebrated Valentine’s Day before I think we did pretty good. We did even better when neither of us had to pay the bill. 😉


For someone who doesn’t go in for all the hoopla of the day is seems a little strange that I would write a story around it but then again I added a little twist.



She’s done with the dating scene. He wants a lifetime of Valentine’s Dates.


Brent had his chance to be Valentine’s date and he blew it. But loving his best friend’s little sister from afar isn’t working. When she calls him in tears Brent’s only choice is to come to her rescue. And now that he’s got her safe in his arms he’s going to make sure she stays there.


It doesn’t matter how much Vee tries to convince herself her feelings for Brent were destroyed years ago. He is still the first person she calls when she needs help. Breaking down in his arms wasn’t part of the plan. Neither was kissing him.


Forced to face their past, Brent and Vee must forgive each other – and themselves – if there’s any hope for the love still burning between them.


Contest details-


Contest runs until February 14th.


So tell me, what’s the most memorable Valentine’s date you’ve ever been on? And if you can’t think of one tell me what would a date memorable? I’ll pick one commenter to receive a download of Valentine’s Dates.

    I’ve been married for 42 years and we don’t celebrate Valentne’s Day like we use to. However, my very favorite Valentine’s Day was in 1970 when my husband gave me my engagement ring. Six weeks later on March 27, 1970, we were married. One child, 3 grandsons and one great granddaughter later, we are still happily married and very much in love.

  • getting last minute tickets to Miami and going! It was the best!

  • parisfanca says:

    what would be a memorable date for me would be a very nice surprize dinner at some expensive restaraunt

  • susan platt says:

    I think it would be memorable if we didn’t do anything “traditional” like a dinner. Last year we did go skating on the Canal in Ottawa and it was fun and I loved it because it was just the two of us : )

  • Mary Preston says:

    A ferry ride around the harbor was rather amazing.


  • The V-day right before we got married, Hubby & I needed a break-desperately! I made reservations at a little inn on Cape Cod that had a couples only weekend called Cuddles & Bubbles. Great fun, wonderful food, champagne, & a hot tub for 2. yeah we needed that!


  • I am hoping this one! We are finally going out to dinner!

  • Mine isn’t memorable because it was a good one but because it was a bad one. My husband (boyfriend then) and I were on our dinner and a movie Valentin’s date. Dinner went great but the movie we saw was horrible and when we got to the car after the movie was over, someone had smashed in his car window and stolen his radio, cd’s, everything. It was awful! We haven’t really gone out for V-Day ever since, and that was probably 11 years ago. 🙁

    We do celebrate still, we just choose to stay home a do it! 🙂

    I haven’t found my love yet; so I have to go with fantasy he would have a special dinner, and very special jewelry that would be meaningful to a very special group of friends that I would know nothing about; and then of course he would have roses on the bed, in the bath water, and he would bathe me; pamper me to the nth degree!
    Thank you for the contest!
    Happy V Day!

    My Valentine’s Day is generally made up of work as I do not and never has had a man on Valentine’s Day. Here’s to someday breaking that streak!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. If we do something it tends to be as a family.
