Last year I received Celebrating Mom from 1-800-Flowers, it was a treat to read with beautiful color and illustrations. When the kids see the book they know it’s for mom, and sometimes they want to read it to me. This year, 1-800-Flowers collaborated with Jim McCann again with Celebrating Love.
Celebrating Love is a collection of loving stories that reminds us to share, remember, and cherish each and every touching memory in our life. Celebrating Love is filled with full-color drawings. These drawings illustrate the book throughout and are interspersed with meaningful quotes and little-known facts about love and affection. Divided into four sections based on the distinct seasons of love, Celebrating Love features 150 entries, including:
* Spring: "Love that is not madness is not love." –Pedro Calderon de la Barca
* Summer: Meeting you was fate. Becoming your friend was a choice. Falling in love with you was beyond my control. Becoming your wife was my fairy tale come true.
* Fall: The Geography of Love
* The oldest love song in existence, whose origin is from somewhere between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, was written 4,000 years ago.
* Nevada issues 120,000 marriage licenses a year.
* Winter: I love you, my forgetful wife. Who knew that love not only lasts longer than memory, but that it continues to grow?
