Expressions of Love

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!

Share your thoughts, feelings, and stories as well as respond to others regarding these questions:

Which do you prefer when it comes to someone’s expression of love for you, and why?

1. A thoughtful gift

2. An act of love (massage, cleaning up, dinner made, etc.)

3. A planned outing (picnic, date night, etc.)

4. Quality time spent together

I’ll get us started …

It’s safe to say that I would relish any of the above expressions of love, but quality time is definitely my go to. One of the times I feel most loved by my husband is on our weekly lunch dates. For that hour I have his undivided attention meaning lots of eye contact, listening, and great conversation. I literally look forward to our lunch dates all week long because I know I will leave with my love tank on full.

Okay, it’s your turn!
