Just in Time for Valentine’s Day, Win a Copy of the Book ‘Colorado Romance’

Colorado Romance at Happy Simple Living blog

My dear friend Gail Riley and her husband Tom Statzell own a wonderful inn here in Colorado, Highland Haven Creekside Inn. In the charming town of Evergreen (about an hour’s drive from Denver) along the banks of Bear Creek, Gail and Tom have created a magical retreat with luxurious private cabins, suites, rooms and their latest labor of love, the TreeHouse.

Highland Haven has been the setting for many marriage proposals, honeymoons and anniversaries, so it’s fitting that Gail wrote a book about romance. Colorado Romance: Love Notes and Recipes for Happiness is filled with Gail’s sumptuous recipes and menus, photos, memories, and plenty of ideas for celebrating and fostering romance. She also shares a selection of writings from the guest journals that are in each room, and I can never read these tender thoughts about love and relationships without getting choked up.

This gorgeous, 152-page book retails for $35.00, and Gail has generously donated a copy to give away to one lucky reader. To enter, simply leave a comment below finishing the statement “Romance is…” Share a memory, a bit of wisdom, your personal experience, your hopes, a quote, or whatever your thoughts are about this love-ly topic.

Gail and I will choose one winner from all the comments received by midnight MST next Friday, February 8. (Just a note – the book can be shipped to U.S. addresses only.) Good luck, and we all look forward to your comments!
