My husband and I celebrated our tenth anniversary this past December. We like to give each other the traditional anniversary gifts. It makes us be creative… it’s fun and dorky and we like it!
My husband came up with a great idea. He is really one of the most thoughtful people I know. One of the suggestions for tenth anniversary is tin. My husband got a popcorn tin, emptied the popcorn out and sprayed the outside with chalkboard spray paint. He told me he intended to write me a love note every day and asked if I would do the same for him.
We keep the tin on his dresser with a pad of paper and a pen next to it. The notes can be serious or silly…. romantic or goofy. I try to be specific and not just write “I love you.”
A love note a day…
This has challenged me to get out of myself and remember why I love this man so much. Relationships can be downright hard, but at the end of the day I know that I love him and he loves me. With this love note tin, we both have a tangible reminder of that fact.
