Quick Tip: Love Notes


In the age of technology, the art of a good love note is dying.  If your marriage needs a little spark, however, I urge you to start penning!

Telling your spouse you love them vocally is oh-so-important, but there is just something special (and keepsake-y) about writing out your feelings for your husband.

My husband and I have a journal where we can write love notes to one another.  I was inspired by our journals to our children, and we started one together.  We don’t write often, but a few times a year we write down our thoughts about our marriage and our feelings for each other.  We’ve had it since the spring of 2009, and I had a great time re-reading our letters to each other one day last week.

Every “love note” doesn’t have to be pages of ooshy-gooshy words to your spouse, try some of these ways to express your written love to your mate:

  • After a shower, write a brief message on the fogged up mirror.  When your husband gets out of the shower, hopefully he’ll see your note!
  • Use your child’s bath alphabet toys, or magnetic letters on the fridge to spell out some sweet words for your hubby!
  • If you pack your husband’s lunch, pen him a little note and stick it in… or slide a note into his bag or briefcase for him to find during the day.
  • If your husband has email access during the work day, send him an email declaring your love!
  • Text your hubby at random times during the day to let him know you love him and are thinking about him.  You might find yourself in a lovey-dovey texting volley.
