    I like valentine’s day because it is a day to focus on love, plus there is some good candy around that time. Count me in … I love swapping.

  28. Kathy says:

    I love that Valentine’s Day is a specific day to show how much you love those around you! Please sign me up for the blog swap!

  29. Well, I’m adding some of my favorite things about Valentine’s Day:
    Of course, the biggie is CHOCOLATE!! (DUH!!)
    I also love roses, and spending time with my sweetie.
    I really like peeps, too – I know, those disgusting marshmallow things covered in sugar. I really like them when they get stale and hard… how weird am I???
    Can’t wait for the swap…
    Oh, how could I forget conversation hearts???

  30. Ashley says:

    Count me in for sure! I love the colors of Valentine’s day, and of course all the cute little goodies they have everywhere!

  31. Sign ME UP! I loved the Christmas ones but have never done another holiday and as I’m single…who wouldn’t want a fun Valentine’s Day gifts?? I love candy…milk chocolate baby. I’m not big on the whole flower aspect of the day. I do like that it’s about showing love for someone, even if it’s not your significant other. Since I AM single, it’s a bit depressing sometimes…sigh. hahah

  32. Kalle says:

    I’m in. I had an awesome time with the Christmas Swap. Love these swaps. Thanks for organizing them Shannon.

  33. Kalle says:

    Ignore my last comment please (#21) I didn’t read the rules before commenting.

    Please sign me up. I love the girliness of valentines day. Pink, red and white….who could ask for a better combination? Little cupids are pretty cute, sparkly stuff is always welcomed but no cinnamon hearts please.

  34. Katie says:

    I’ve never done a swap with bloggers before, but this sounds like lots of fun. I’d love to participate and try it out!

    As for what I like about Valentine’s Day, I love the pink. It’s my favorite color! I love the romance of it, and that it makes the tough men have to be sweet for once! 🙂 I also love that it doesn’t always have to be romantic – my parents always gave us kiddos Valentine’s gifts and I want to pass that tradition on my to my little man!

    And one can’t forget the chocolates, goodies, and flowers! 🙂

  35. Chris says:

    I have to admit: I like the candy and nice dinners best about Valentine’s Day! Plus cinnamon hearts are delicious!

  36. Tricia says:

I wish her family all the best and no no no hard feelings. 🙂 I love valentines day for many reasons, the main reason it is my anniversary! This will be year 13 and we have a tradition of going to Red Lobster every year….not sure if we will this year. I love the little things I do for the kiddos on V day too. It is a great day to express love for those in our lives.

My DH’s birthday is the 11th, mine is the 13th, then we celebrate Valentine’s Day and our DD’s birthday is the 23rd. It’s a month of celebration for us.
