Je T'Adore Valentine's Giveaway

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

A b'zillion ways times seven! 

I can't count that high. So, let me just say that I love love love love love my blog buddies. A lot.

You're such faithful readers. You leave the best comments. You tweet me. You email. You're quick to sing my praises, that's for sure. You inspire me. And, I am richly blessed.

Besides all of YOU, here's three more things that I L♥VE...

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know how crazy I am about my boyfriend culinary genius Matthew Kenney. Wanna see him in action as he channels a new recipe onto the page? Just click on that link.

I own three of his books. His most recent, Entertaining In The Raw (March 2009), takes raw living food to a whole new level. I wouldn't even classify it as gourmet. Work-of-art is more like it.

I'm always so happy when my Yoga Journal arrives in the mail. It's a wonderful magazine that inspires and relaxes at the same time. There are articles on poses, with clear photos, succinct instructions, and explanations on how to modify them if you need to. There are pieces on healthy eating, meditation, forgiveness, fashion, books, back pain, mindfulness. There are stories from real people, talking about how even minor changes in their lifestyle brought about significant results, while others share their journey of healing from a life-threatening illness. 

Whether you're a newbie or someone with a long-established practice, this is a valuable resource for information about physical and spiritual well-being through the practice of yoga.

I've been a faithful reader of Natural Home since its premiere in 1999. Looking for information and inspiration on sustainable home design, earth-friendly décor and natural lifestyles? This is the resource to check out! Whether you're looking for tips on how to green your kitchen or plan an eco-wedding, installing solar panels or planting an organic garden, you'll likely find it within these pages.

If you're health-conscious and environmentally concerned — and I gotta believe you are — you're sure to enjoy this magazine as much as I do.

Wanna know what else I love? A good movie. And, admittedly, I'm a sucker for romance. What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a romantic movie?

So here's the scoop...

Below are 10 romantic films, followed by 10 quotations. Match the quotes to the love story they came from. First person who does, wins Mr. Kenney Entertaining In The Raw. Second person who matches all 10 correctly, wins the March issue of Yoga Journal. Third person who answers correctly, gets the latest issue of Natural Home magazine.

And just to keep things fair and everyone guessing, I'll keep your responses hidden from view.


Fun fun! And while I would loooooove to hear from all my readers around the globe, I must limit the winners to folks who live in the United States. I'll announce the correct answers and the winners tomorrow on V-Day.

Okay. Ready. Set. Go.
