Valentine’s Day is coming up soon. Here is a fun way to use the first 14 days in February to show someone how much you love, cherish and appreciate them. Do this for children and adults!

The Many Reasons Why I Love You

People often say “I love you” but they often don’t go into specifics about what exactly it is about the person that they love. Telling someone the many reasons why you love them is much more powerful and meaningful.

So here’s what you do that I call 14 Days of Love Notes.

Instructions:

Cut out 14 paper hearts. Starting February 1, write a love note or affirmation on a heart every day and tape it where your Valentine will be sure to see it. It could be on their bedroom door, on their bathroom mirror, or different places around the home. Continue writing on a paper heart every day for 14 days.

Tip: I used red and pink construction paper and taped it to my son’s bedroom door with painter’s tape so it wouldn’t damage the paint.

Your loved ones will enjoy reading your daily expressions of love!

Couple’s Gratitude Journal

I started journaling in grade school, and I’ve done it ever since. I enjoy writing down life’s moments, both big and small, that I always want to remember.

By deciding on what to write, I’m able to reflect on my life, my thoughts, and my feelings. It’s both therapeutic and satisfying.

My husband has never journaled so he has never gotten to experience the joys or the benefits from it. This Valentine’s Day that’s going to change!

Weekly Expressions of Gratitude

I’ve gotten us a Couple’s Gratitude Journal, where each week we both write about how much we appreciate the other person. I know we appreciate each other, but this is a chance for us to do a better of expressing it regularly.
