Stay Connected To Your Partner with Love Notes
Put the pen to paper to show your honey you love them when you're away.

Recently, a client came to me asking for suggestions on how he can stay better connected to his fiancé when he travels for business. In addition to suggesting regular calls or Skype chats, I suggested something more old-school: love notes.

You might consider text messages (or sexting) the modern day equivalent to a handwritten love note, however, there's a certain sort of magic that is created when you put pen to paper. I know it isn't as convenient as a text, however, if you want to strengthen the bond with your partner, love notes are a fabulous idea.

 

Here are some ideas on ways to include love notes in your day-to-day living:

  • Hide love notes in your partner's lunch box or brief case. It reminds your partner that you're thinking about him (or her) while you are separated during the day.
  • Sneak love notes in your partner's underwear drawer or within the folds of his undershirts.
  • Put a love notes in the folds of a napkin at the dinner table or slide under the dinner plate.
  • Leave love notes under your partner's pillow.
  • Write love notes in the middle of a pad of Post It Notes to be discovered later.
  • Stock up on kid's Valentines in February and write love notes in the back. You get the bonus of cute and corny valentine sayings and pictures.
  • Write love notes on local postcards and drop them in the mail at the airport before you board the plane.
  • Mail handwritten love notes even if you aren't going on a business trip! Everyone loves getting real mail!

  • I love you
