love notes.

There are about a gazillion ways my husband shows his love for me. But one of my most favorite things he does to show me just how much he loves me, is that he leaves me love notes.

For as long as I can remember, I have woken up every single morning to a little note from Jared! They aren't big, long love letters, just small notes- usually written on a post it or a note pad. I find them anywhere from the kitchen, the bathroom mirror, my steering wheel in my car, at the front of my bible, & occasionally on my pillow. Sometimes he writes me a little burst of encouragement, sometimes it's an apology for being a jerk, sometimes it's telling me how proud he is of me, but most of the time it is just him telling me how much he loves me. The fact that he takes the time every single morning to think of me, to scratch a little something onto a paper so that my day starts off great means everything to me! I have hundreds & hundreds of saved little notes from Jared, but I never ever get tired or bored of them. In fact, the very few times I have woken up without a little note, I feel like a part of my day is missing. I have saved each & every one of them because if I were to put them all together, they would be our love story. They would show all of the little details of our lives together. I can't help but imagine that one day, a long time from now, our children will sift through all of our belongings, & run across all of these tiny little love notes. I hope they smile, I hope it makes their hearts happy, but most of all I hope they can see & feel the love that Jared & I have for eachother.

I am blessed beyond belief because I wake up every single day of my life knowing that I am loved & adored. I am so thankful for a husband who takes just a little bit of time to show his love for me!

Here's my little love note from this morning!
