Love Is In Da Blog 2021 Reveal

I participated in this challenge in February of 2019 and 2020 and it is coming back again this year, however it will be a bit different.  Bee the host has a private blog, so there will be no pingbacks this year, the prompts are themed as the Great Love Stories and she is expecting poetry or music, so you can choose a song or a write poem or do both.  February will have 28 days of love and the prompts are here with my planned choices listed below.
