Love notes

   Now that I’m married to the love of my life, Scott, I write him notes too.  I started with a cute little note I’d put on his  pillow when I’d leave for work so he’d see it when he got home from work. Just a reminder to him that I loved him and he was the best husband ever.  This is a pic of us on our wedding day, December 18, 2010.  I believe it’s very important to tell people how you feel, especially the people you love.  Notes are great because they are permanent.  You can hold them in your hand and re-read them over and over whenever you want.  Phone calls, texts, and emails are nice, but they don’t compare to the written note. Notes show the recipient that you took the time to write down your thoughts on paper so that your recipient can have forever.


The Power of Notes

I firmly believe in the power of notes, especially to your loved ones. I am a writer, mommy, grandma, and wife. I raised two amazing children, Max and Renée, and I showered them with notes. It all began when they were very young. I wrote them each encouraging notes and put them in their rooms as a surprise. They loved looking in their lunch boxes when they were at school and finding their daily note. The note would be a reminder of what they needed to remember or do that day and I would always close with an “I love you, Mommy”.
