Romance Wednesday: Love Letters

In today's society love letters are almost extinct in most relationships.  Long gone are the days of waking up to find a little love note laying on your pillow.  Well, in my household I am fighting to keep this ancient art alive.  As you can tell, I am very good with expressing myself through the written word.

My husband did not grow in the most loving environment as a child.  And being in foster care he never really got to witness what a great marriage could be like.  That portrait of how a man should love a woman wasn't painted for him.  Hell, he barely felt the love that parents and relatives should have for a child.

Thus, he tends to need to be reassured that he is loved and that I am still in love with him.  And what better way to do so than through a love letter.  Our relationship has weathered many storms but through them all I never fell out of love with my husband.  He is one of a kind.

And strive everyday to let him know it.  There's nothing I enjoy more than sitting down with nice stationery and pouring my heart out to him.  In that moment I feel so uninhibited.  And the rush of emotions I get from watching read why letters is indescribable.

I try to surprise him. I might leave them in his lunch bag, on the driver seat of the car, the bed, etc.  I've even mailed him love letters. I hope that we can pass this art on to our children. 

Our boys and girls need to know the proper techniques to express their love.  So many of them feel they have to turn to sex and you don't.  A love letter is just as intimate.  It gets right to the point.

   When was the last time you wrote your spouse a love letter?


  1. Gosh, the last time I wrote my husband a love letter was 6 yrs. ago. We started off writing love letters/poems to each other but we just let it fade away. This is something we definitely need to start doing again.
    Nothing better than sweet words on paper. I'm glad you are keeping it up.

  2. That is sooo sweet. We haven't written love letters in a while, but we have these cute "love notes" cards that we periodically surprise each other with. They say things like: Thought about you today, I am so in love with you, You make me so happy...

    ...sweet when you just need a little pick me up!

  3. I totally agree! There's something so special that comes with sharing your heart on paper. It becomes to timeless and extra meaningful! I think it's especially awesome that you understand the way your husband needs love and work hard at fulfilling him with that need. Good job, lady!

  4. How sweet is this! I love the idea of sending him a love letter in the mail:-) that's an excellent idea. I sent love emails to my hubby all the time! But hand written letter, thats classic:-)

  5. That is the sweetest thing ever and such a good way to keep the love alive. I really like the idea of mailing the letter to him and placing it in the car and his lunch bag. That's so sweet! I was actually planning on doing that for Aiden as he grows and learns how to read.

  6. So lovely, i love the idea, technology has made me forget the simple ways sometimes, and i do love a nice bit of stationary and a hand written letter. This has inspired me to pick up the pen once again...
    Now a New follower :)

  7. yes, love is a little lost in textspeak ;)

  8. Oh I love this such a great idea!!! I need to do this more often :)

  9. Wow, that is so sweet! I honestly can't remember the last time I wrote a love letter to DH. Maybe back when we were first dating..... around 5 years ago.

    I think you've just inspired me to bring some of that old romance back. 2 kids later so much has changed, but it's always a good thing to remind your man that he is loved/appreciated.

  10. Glad that I could inspire some of you to help bring back a little spark into your relationships.
