Hubby's Valentine Love Box


My husband and I started dating 12 years ago, this March. We met in college & became instant friends. I know all guys hate the word 'friends', but we were. We were inseparable and hung out all the time. One day I found out that he had wrote a song for me (ahhhh), and since that day we have been busy creating OUR life together. We got married 8 years ago, this Spring and continue to be best friends all this time later.

A few years ago I wanted to write down as many things, no matter how big or small, to let him know how much I really love and appreciate him. I decided I was going to write these 'items' down on a list in a repetitive form beginning with 'I Love...'. Each little sentence began with 'I Love' and I filled in the blank from there. I included EVERYTHING I could think of like: I Love...when you make me a cup of tea,  I Love...when I get a text message from you in the day, I Love...when you schedule a babysitter for our date, I Love...that I get to watch life draw itself on your face. ANYTHING that you love about your significant other counts. So once I had them all typed up, I cut them into little strips and placed them in a box. Now this box is nothing to write home about, but you could fancy it up if you wanted. I think it is nice and simple & FILLED with the awesomeness. I put a few Valentine stickers on top of the box and wrote 'I Love...'. Start thinking now because once you have to put it to paper, your mind goes completely blank. (Sorry Handsome Hubby)


I wanted to share a pic of the Handsome Hubby, since I'm chin wagon about him, so here he is in ALL his awesomeness:) Thanks for letting me gush about him! Happy Valentine's Day!!
