Happy #ValentinesDay from R@R + 20 book Giveaway – Crazy!
Happy Valentine’s peeps! We’ve asked our authors what is the most favorite gift they’ve given or received on Valentine’s Day – their answers are below – enjoy!
For Valentine’s, there is only one way to my heart and that’s with a bouquet of tulips and hockey tickets. My husband always comes through every year, not only with those two things but also with a box of chocolates and a card that reminds me how much he loves me. For him, I always get a box of Whitman’s chocolates because it is his favorite chocolate. For the kids, I get them SpongeBob box of crabby patties and they just love that. This year though, my husband and I are going to Nashville to spend the night and just enjoy each other. Its our 16th Valentine’s day together and each one get better and better. He is the reason I write love stories, because he loves me so much.

Music. For years, my husband and I have exchanged mixtapes and playlists–to flirt, to comfort, to encourage, or to tease. One of my favorites was one he made for me during those hardest, weepiest, sweetest first days of caring for our newborn. Hearing songs from that playlist still choke me up. But we also exchange them as Valentine’s–to communicate all those things that words, even for a writer, don’t fully express. Receiving a mixtape (or mixed CD, really) or playlist from the one you love is a singular thrill—it’s a like a coded love letter. Listening to one, I have some insight to some of his deepest, or even nuttiest, feelings about me. Making one for him, I can make choices that are braver and sexier and more interesting than I might normally make with words or actions. Music from the one that you love marks your time together like a diary. It scores the memories. It’s a private soundtrack, and all the songs are “your songs.” ~ Mary Ann Rivers, author of THE STORY GUY on sale 7/8/2013
