Words to Use More Often #4 [Valentine’s Day Edition]

Hello again, friends!

As we all know, Valentine’s Day is today. ๐Ÿ˜€ And I’m sure while some of us have lovely plans, others will be content with living romance vicariously through books. ๐Ÿ˜›

Since, last year, I wrote a post called This Valentine’s Day, Buy Someone A Book, (It’s been exactly a year and two daysย since I wrote that! Goodness me, how time flies) I thought I’d continue the tradition and publish something Valentine’s Day-related. We haven’t had one of these Words to Use More Often posts in a while, so here you have fourteen words that, for whatever reason, remind me of love. Enjoy!
