I ran across Alecia at Savings & Stewardship via the “Friday Follow” back at the beginning of January. I stumbled across her blog at the peak of my frustration with coupon clipping and attempting to save money. I have to say that her blog was somewhat of a God-send because I have learned so much and found some amazing deals through her site. Alecia and her family of four work to pinch their pennies and spend what God has given them wisely. She has sent me a wonderful post today about the importance of romance and how we can write love letters to our significant others.
A few weeks ago, I received a great little packet in the mail from The Foundation for a Great Marriage, Inc. It is a love letter kit called "Write from the Heart". I loved the concept so much that I thought I would share their recommendations with all of you. Marriage can be a lot of work, but it is well worth it, and it takes more to destroy a marriage than to build one.
Take a few moments over the next few days to write your spouse a love letter and remind them of all the wonderful reasons that you are thankful they are sharing their life with you!
Tips on Writing a Love Letter:
* Clear your desk and your mind of distractions. If you love someone enough to craft this letter, he or she deserves your full attention.
* Place a picture of the one you love in front of you and put on your favorite music.
* On another sheet of letter paper, make two lists: A) the unique qualities you love about him/her; B) your hopes for the future together.
* In the body of the love letter, begin by telling him/her what you think makes him/her so special. List at least three different qualities of the one you love in the letter.
* In the following paragraph of your love letter, share your hopes and dreams for the future you can have together. Don’t be afraid to use some lines from some of your favorite, loving songs. Share the real you and end with a loving thought.
* Send your letter!

I love this idea! I’ve written my hubby notes and little letters and stuff in the past, but this is such a great outline for really getting your point across as to what you are trying to say. I know us women don’t have as much trouble putting our feelings on paper as our husbands do, but this is still a good start for those who don’t find the words coming so easily. With hubby being gone all summer this year, I think I may definitely have write one of these and stick it in his suitcase….hmm. 🙂
