Love Is In The Air

It is hard to believe that Valentine's Day is one week away. I remember in years past I would have done anything for roses, or chocolate, or even a piece of jewerly. It really is amazing how your priorities change after a few years. Make that almost 21 Valentine Days together. Don't get me wrong, of course I would like  some chocolate(okay, love that) and jewerly would be kind of awesome. The flowers?

As I surf through Twitter and FB, I am seeing all kinds of great holiday hops for giveaways, crafters, etc.  Unfortunately, I am neither.  I can't craft to save my life, and I just don't enter any giveaways.  Sour grapes, I suppose, because I never, ever win.  My blog is new, it doesn't get the traffic to host a holiday event,  and I just don't have the woman power to start my own event.Does anyone know of any holiday hops that are just for the normal person?Or maybe some advice on how to start my own?...more
