Love ........ Just Write

It was the week before Valentine's Day 2012, and I am embarrassed to say, I hadn't even given it a thought. It always seems to sneak up on me. To be honest with you, I was also a little preoccupied with the impending arrival of my new nephew(born on Valentine's Day). Normally, my husband and I usually do something easy, like dinner and small gifts to each other. It's never anything elaborate, so this year I wanted to do something a little more memorable. I was drawing a blank, so I turned to the internet for some help. There were obviously many suggestions and great ideas, but one stood out to me. It suggested buying him a nice leather journal to write in. Now, if you know my husband, he is a wonderful guy who I am blessed to be married to, but he is not a fan of journaling. 

I on the other hand LOVE to write all of my thoughts and ideas down, so I decided to stick with the original plan, but changed it up a bit to make it more meaningful. Instead of giving him the journal to write in, I wrote a little love note in the front, gave it to him, and then promptly took it back, explaining that for the next 365 days I would record all of the sweet and thoughtful things he does for me. Needles to say, he was very relieved, and touched when I took it back. Fast forward to Valentine's Day 2013. I returned the journal to him packed with 365 days of love, and he still enjoys reading it every night.

This simple idea turned out to be such a blessing and made our relationship even stronger than ever. We both became more conscious of how much the little things we do for one another on a daily basis really do impact our lives in a big way. It's  pretty hard to nit pick about all of the things a person does wrong, when you are looking for all of the things they do right.

If you do choose to take on this mission, you won't regret it! It's a win win situation for everyone involved! Trust me, you will enjoy the journey!

Happy Journaling!!!!

"Thank you for dressing up like Buddy the Elf to cheer up a friend."
"Thank you for leaving the umbrella hanging on the door handle so I wouldn't get wet in the rain today."
"Thank you for the daily kisses on the cheek while I'm still sleeping before you go out the door to work."

"I love the fact that you love to shop as much as I do!"
"Thank you for the countless times you wait for me to finish my hair, makeup etc."
