From traditional Valentine’s Day to Galentine’s Day (the celebration of love for our girlfriends), over-priced roses and enormous amounts of chocolate…this week, there is a bit more love in the air than usual. Here on the island, we’re fortunate to add our love of reading, writing, and other authors into the mix with the Amelia Island Book Festival starting on Valentine’s Day. An author luncheon, a gala, a book expo and, of course, an #IndieAuthor reception… it’s going to be delicious. And all of that is followed by the anniversary of my marriage to the love of my life — someone known online as “Favorite Husband.” My heart is full.
