Today’s romantic challenge is to write a group of notes to your spouse telling them something specific in stages and hiding them where you know they’ll find them. Or you can give them the first one that provides a hint where to find the next one and so on, until all the notes have been found.
♥ One idea is to copy the stanzas of a poem on separate notes that share your thoughts toward your love. Here is a list from which to choose:
- At Last, that speaks of a woman who married later in life
- This one from a husband to his wife
- A Valentine To My Wife.
- Ode To A Darling Wife
- I Am So Blessed
- I Thank You
- The Little Things
♥ Another idea is to start with a note that compliments their head, next their neck, next their shoulders (husband), breasts (wife), and continue down until you end with a note you’ve written for them to find in your underwear (the ones you’re wearing) Use a sticky note, or write on your skin. You’ll have your spouse anticipating that last note at the end of the day. You could even incorporate the childhood song: the head bone’s connected to the neck bone, the neck bone’s connected to the shoulder bone… for a fun way to lead them to where you want them to go. 🙂
♥ You could also take a picture of the two of you and cut it into 7 large puzzle pieces. Take this poem, by Alexandra Garfield (I’ve re-written to fit from one spouse to another) and write one line on the back of each piece. Then, hide each piece for them to find throughout the day.
Do you realize how blessed we are?
We may have our problems
But we fit together
Like what one is lacking is made up by the other
Some force their love like mismatched puzzle pieces
But we are blessed
Let’s practice fitting our pieces together? 😉
♥ You could celebrate the senses and write a note telling them how your love affects each of your senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, touching, tasting. Then let the last note be an invitation with a blindfold to play Blindman’s Bluff that night.
We’ll post our next idea tomorrow at 6:00a. so you can have time to do it. Most of all–have fun. That’s one of the benefits of lasting love, being able to ENJOY each other completely and without shame.
