10 Simple and Sweet Ways to Show Your Love

Sometimes we forget in our busy lives to show our loved ones just how important they are. Take this Valentine’s Day to do something extra special. These little gestures can be as simple as writing out a message in your child’s toy blocks. If you’re playing in the snow, leave a sweet, little heart drawn right into the snow for someone to find. I like to write messages in the fog of the shower for my husband to find when he gets ready for the morning. Here are a few simple ways to show love that will brighten anyone’s day.
