Happy Valentine's Day Week-Things to See and Do in SL
Happy Valentine's Day Week Everyone! I think almost anyone can appreciate how much love, romance, and yes, sex, makes the world go round, even in SL where there are many fantastic places and things set up for Valentine's Day appreciation in SL, so I wanted to share some of my favorites with you all with easy use links. There are so many great places and products and events I couldn't begin to get all that I've seen here and I'm sorry if I neglected even some of my favorites, but here at least are some I've kept track of to share. I might add more as Valentine's Day is a couple of days away yet. Enjoy!
