Decorating for Valentine's Day



When Justin and I were dating, he decorated my room with over 100 post-it notes telling me all the things he loved most about me while I was at school.  Some of the notes mentioned personality traits, my silliness, physical features and the time we spent together.  

I have kept them for all this time and decided today to get them out of their box and read them again five years later, with fresh eyes and as his wife.  

As I started taping my favorites on our walls to decorate for Valentine's Day, I asked myself if he would say the same things about me today.  Am I still doing all of these things that he fell in love with?!  I would hope that the answer is yes, and more

While looking through all the post-its, I separated the blank ones and decided to write on them all the things I love about Justin.  I really do believe that it's all the little everyday things in a relationship that can make it so wonderful.  I tell Mr. Sharkey all the time how much I love him, but today I am going to write down exactly what I love about him.  I hope that in another 5 years we can read them again and say that we still love all these things about each other and that these are still things we do today.

Although I think we should show our love for one another everyday, today is a reason to go a little overboard!  I can't wait for Justin to get home and see our love notes to each other hanging above our table.

The Perfect Gift is the book Justin had me read right before he proposed,
along with my first Valentine's Day card to him and my favorite love quote book.


Tell your significant other all the things you love about them!
Pick up some fun post-its at your local craft store or Target and grab a pen or marker. Think about all the little things, daily routines, goofy moments, personality traits, physical features and their style that makes you love them so much.  It's a great way to show someone you love them in an inexpensive way that they can reread for years to come.

{Happy Valentine's Day}
