All marriage advice can be helpful and valuable, but there’s something to be said for advice that is immediately effective and easy to implement. Nole Garey of Oh So Beautiful Paper shared this sweet advice with us in V6, and I can think of no better way to brighten your spouse’s day…today!
Write love letters! They can be handwritten cards sent through the mail or short surprise notes tucked into a shirt pocket. My husband, Andrew, started sending me notes before we were married and continues to do so today. The timing is totally random, and every time one shows up–either in our mailbox or as a note left on a pillow or desk–I can’t help but smile. We see each other every single day and it can be easy to get bogged down by all the things that go into daily life–caring for our daughters, cleaning the house, paying bills, running errands. These little notes are a sweet reminder of our love for each other and the fact that we chose to spend the rest of our lives together, both the fun parts and the not-so-fun parts. I keep every single note in a keepsake box, and every time I look through that box, I realize all over again why he’s the perfect person for me.
