I love this book! First off, it is beautiful! Pink is my favorite color, but beyond that I love the illustrations inside and  is full of wonderful stories, inspirational quotes and lots of love! This book is a great gift for Valentine's, but I believe in celebrating love all year round!  Valentine's day is so commercial, we come to expect lavish gifts and frivolous things. I appreciate the gifts that I get on a regular day FAR more than on Valentine's day! This book helps to remind me that love is important 365 days of the year!

This  contest encourages 1-800-FLOWERS.COM fans to post their own love notes, and cast their vote for the most touching love note on the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Facebook page.
