Valentine’s Day is over, but how do you show and express your love to your spouse or significant other on a regular basis? Is this difficult or easy for you?

I’ll get us started …

One of the biggest ways that I show and express my love to my hubs, Steve, is through notes. I like to leave him cards and post-it notes that let him know he is loved and appreciated. I also try to do little things for him like taking care of a household task he normally does, picking him up something he needs from the store, getting him something small on my errands to let him know I was thinking of him, and telling him how much I love him. In some ways it’s very natural and easy for me to do this because I can’t tell him enough what a wonderful husband he is and how thankful I am for him. At the same time, I do feel like going outside my usual gestures is challenging at times because of how busy life is. It’s hard to carve out the time to think outside the box, but I do want to be better about that. There’s always room for improvement!

Okay, it’s your turn!

What is one thing your spouse did this week to make you feel loved?

I’ll get us started …

I had a very long day just trying to get all of my work done while maintaining our home. I take pride in giving care and attention to both our home and my career, but sometimes it’s a lot to balance, so I find myself extra tuckered out at times. My husband, Steve, took notice of my hard work and ensuing fatigue, and had me sit back and relax while he rubbed my feet with lotion. He made sure to let me know how much he appreciates how hard I work too. It was like a little escape to Cloud 9; it built me up physically and emotionally.

Okay, it’s your turn!

What is one thing you did this week to show your spouse that you love him/her?

I’ll get us started …

Like most couples, Steve and I have divided up the household responsibilities. We each have things that we take care of. One of Steve’s chores is to gather up and take down the trash when it’s full. This week I decided to give him a little break by gathering it all up and taking it down for him. It wasn’t anything major, but just something to let him know that I appreciate what he does and wanted to help out this week.

Okay, it’s your turn!
