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.

  1. Love is the air. How wonderful.

  2. I met Eli Weisel 30+ years ago when he came to speak at the college I was attending (I was an very old student … in my 30s). He radiated love and compassion. He was such a teacher in that way.

  3. Beautiful love-filled post Andrea. Made me smile, giggle and appreciate my friends, my beloved husband, my children, my fur babies and all who I love and adore. And that’s you too. Enjoy your book expo <3

    • Thanks, my friend. There’s so much going on around here right now — I’m working to stay grounded. And, as you so often teach, the best way to do that is in love. One book festival down, one more to go: they’re such a great way to connect with readers and other authors.

  4. I love all the love quotes!
