Love Notes in Lunches and Dresses at Dinner

Last week I started doing something new.

Something to remind my husband that I love him, think about him, pray for him, and am thankful for him.

I sat down on Sunday night with 5 little slips of paper. On each one I wrote out a little note; some with a verse, some with silly drawings, some with a few words meant only for him.

Then each morning when I made his lunch before he went to work, I would tuck it in between the plastic containers of salad and leftovers. A little surprise to add joy to his day.

And he liked it :). Because some days at work are long or tiring or difficult, and its nice to get a reminder that someone who loves you is waiting at the other end of your day.

Then on Thursday night I decided to dress up a little, just to surprise him when he walked in the door. I donned a sundress and heels, lit a candle, and made sure that dinner was ready to go as soon as he arrived.

I was rewarded with a big grin.

He works so hard, and I am trying to be more thoughtful and intentional about showing him love. Because you only get one husband girls, and one short life to enjoy together.

How are you intentionally loving your husband this week?


  1. That's awesome, Rachel! You're right-we must be intentional about showing our husbands love :) Great reminder!

  2. That is wonderful!

    Every once in a while I'll leave a note in his hat after he goes to bed, for him to find in the morning before he leaves for the day. I try to really involve him in what I'm making for dinner, so that it's always something I'm sure he'll like.
