When we were engaged, my sister-in-law Britt suggested that we have a special couple journal where we can write each other little notes and keep a fun record of our marriage. So, we are still filling up that book I bought 4 years ago :), but it is such a precious treasure to me! Sometimes for Mother’s Day or my birthday, I’ll find a surprise note from Steve. Every now and then I'll get it out as we're brainstorming what we want to do for summer or some of our dreams. It’s also a place where I paste in little memories – like one page of notes Steve took at the pre-birthing class I enrolled us in … or cut outs of our favorite pictures we found while looking through a home decorating magazine... or the cute and supportive note he wrote to me my first day alone with our toddler and new born babe! Sometimes I write my latest thoughts about life or glue in some recent pictures I ordered from Costco.
The key is to have this “Love Journal” out somewhere where you can easily see it and access it. And, I have a spot right next to the journal where I can stack letters and memorabilia that I want to later paste in. I already love to look through it and I think our kids will also enjoy it someday! So…
Pick a book
Have it out
Make a stash nearby
And paste it in or write when you can!
