LOVE NOTES.

love notes.

Photo one:
Jacob left me a note yesterday afternoon, I laughed so hard because rather than using the dry erase marker he got out a regular marker & paper and stuck it on the dry erase board. Love It!
- the heart love you lots is from Amy (baby sis) when I was moving to colorado 9 years ago, I recently found it and put it up. It melts my heart.
Photo two:
I wrote this so every time Jacob or anyone walks in our living room they know how much they mean to me. My friend Bobo was in town and doodled the owl when I wasn't looking. I liked that addition a lot! We have a crazy story about owls. Owls will always bring us back to one scary vacation! That wooden owl is PROOF!

Love notes never get old. Even when I get home from work, I much rather have a note on the fridge than a typical text message. I am so sentimental that save every note I get. I have boxes of cards, boxes of notes from grade school even, and I have a few special box's titled Jacob and Brandi. Inside My Jacob and Brandi boxes are movie stubs, concert tickets, travel vouchers, hotel cards, notes, cards, any mementos from fun dates, dried out flowers...you name it. It's the small things that count right, and it's always fun to look back on. Oh memories!  One of my favorite things to do is read old love letters from my parents and my grandparents. It's weird how they were people once and not just our parental units! Maybe one day our future kids will want to read ours. Who knows?

I love this so much! & I really love sharing love notes with my new guy. Sometimes I write them like formal letter to my man at sea. Those are my favorite. He's going underway in October till right before Christmas {he's in the Coast Guard} & he addressed & stamped 15 envelopes for me to write to him while he's gone. I'm so excited for this! I think a written letter will be a lot more meaningful than the emails we share while he's away. =)

Your friend has a talent for drawing owls! The love note thing is so sweet. It's always so refreshing to see a man do that for his love.

this is so sweet :) I love love notes as well, me and my partner have a little notepad in the kitchen for messages to each other.
and I'm the same with my box of memories! I keep ticket stubs and concert tickets and cards and... everything.

I made my husband this box a few years ago and it is now filled with every single note I have ever written to him....
I keep all of his notes to me as well and whenever we have a bad day or fight, I'll dig them out and read a few of them. Always makes things better...
To me, there's nothing sweeter then a love note

Paislea, Nancy, Mallory- That makes my heart beam that so many of us girls keep theses special memories in a box:)

Justina- Thanks I will tell him you like it:) I do. I agree when a man gets mushy it's the best feeling ever!

Thanks for your comments! I love reading them:)

I just made my husband a book of emails of our two years together before we got married... I titled it "Modern Love Notes" so we can keep those exchanges forever. :) I used a company called Memeoirs and they did an awesome job!
