Love Day Dance and Keychain Giveaway

Whatever your plans for the upcoming love day or if you have not yet made plans for Valentine's Day, I am here to tell you about a special Love Day dance.

Actually, I am going to let my net friend Lisa explain to you all about the event in her article on the worldwide dance steps to further awareness of violence against women on Valentine's Day in 2013. Be sure to check out the link to the locator she provides for details of the One Billion Rising dance event nearest you!

Yes. I am a woman who has fallen victim to child abuse and domestic violence. I am fortunate to be a survivor of these demons, unlike my mother, whose death was a direct result of domestic violence. You can read my story amid the prose and poems of Arise Against Abuse.

Check out another keychain.

Food for Thought and Love

My first thought is that I simply must find more time for sharing the love on this blog! In my quest to share the love with my readers every day I fell behind in January and I am already a bit behind for February, gheesh! Oh well, I have plenty of time to catch up throughout the year.

That said, I invite you to blog about love this month and link your blog posts up with Share the Love blog hop!

February is the month of Love so let us share the love together.

Of course, I believe we should share the love with everyone, not just for the designated love day for Valentines. Hence, my sharing of many different aspects of love here for the Share the Love blog hop and I also share similar thoughts on my "Share the Love on Valentine's Day" article on Squidoo.

In keeping with food for thought, how about creating a healthy dessert for your loved ones this Valentine's Day? Or, any day, for that matter!

If healthy is not on your mind at the moment I am sure you will enjoy whipping up some easy to make and bake blackberry cobbler!

Do you have a favorite recipe?
How about a recipe for love?
Perhaps, a recipe reminder of a loved one...?

...such as my mom's peach pies.

Blog about your loved recipes and link up with Share the Love!
