HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
I wanted to make this day a little more special for all my readers and fans, so I’ve decided to hold giveaways throughout the day! Come by, comment on one or more posts, and you are entered to win that giveaway’s prize. Winners will be announced on the blog tomorrow. There will be three posts today, so three giveaways, each with different prizes, although some may also have prizes from other giveaways as well (i.e., giveaway #2 could have both its own prize and the prize from giveaway #1 as well).
Needless to say, I’m truly excited to be spending some of my Valentine’s Day with you, my readers and fans!
So to get this party started, do you remember how you celebrated Valentine’s Day in school?
I remember in 3rd grade, Mrs. Sheffield created valentine cards specially suited to each child in the class from pink/red/white construction paper and put them on the bulletin board. The valentines went up on the first of February, and each day, usually before we went home, each child could guess which valentine was his/hers. To keep us engaged, Mrs. Sheffield would only say how many children in each row were correct in their guesses, so we never really knew until the final day, February 14th. When each child guessed that day, if they were right, Mrs. Sheffield would take the valentine down and give it to the child. If you were wrong, you got to guess until you guessed right. I guessed correctly right off the bat: mine was the face of a cat (everyone knew I loved cats, so I was pretty sure all along). I only remember one other child’s valentine. Her name was Becky and her valentine was a pair of lips because she kissed Mrs. Sheffield on the cheek each day when she left to go home. (So funny what you remember from childhood!)
So there’s my valentine memory from school. Play along, comment below, and enter to win either an e-book or signed print copy (your choice) of one of my back listed books.
Have fun, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day Giveaway #2 will release at noon (EST) today! Come on back for more fun and giveaways!
