Sometimes, it’s the little things that make any old day a little sweeter. Maybe it’s as simple as treating yourself to a new candle, getting a pedicure with a girlfriend, sending a sweet card, or planning a date night. I’m a fan of all the above; however, leaving little love notes is one of my favorite things to do. Yes, it’s true: I have feelings. Sappy, right?
Is it just me or does it seem like no one has the time for romance anymore? I’m perhaps the most grand perpetrator of this epidemic which is why I like to take a few minutes to leave notes every now and then. Vacations take away from work, date nights are unnecessary when you’d rather stay home eating Chinese from the container, and grand gestures can be expensive. Little notes are inexpensive, take little time, and are possibly more meaningful than any of the aforementioned. Waking up to a note that just says you’re being thought of or someone loves you? Best feeling in the world. Amiright?
Hallmark Signature cards have proven to be my favorites to leave for my special someone — whether it’s just saying how much I appreciate him, requesting his order for that night’s sweat pant fueled SVU marathon and Chinese food binge, or to let him know we’re getting dressed up and hitting the town. Because who doesn’t love any kind of date night and how cute are these cards?! Embarrassing confession that is already extremely evident: I’m such a sucker for love notes. Big quoting that love poem to SJP at the end of the first SATC movie? Crocodile tears. I’m not a huge present person; I’d rather give a little card and spend a lot of time instead of investing in a large purchase. Week night dates are my favorite way to make that happen. It doesn’t matter the destination; I like to keep it simple and chic and enjoy the company. Because it’s the little things that count the most!
