13 Fun + Easy Ways to Say “I Love You”

By chauniebrusie |

I am a romantic at heart. 

When my now husband and I were dating, and even when we were newly married, I loved planning little surprises for him, like a picnic on the beach or making up a batch (or two) of brownies just to show my love. Those small gestures make me happy and help me to express my “love language” to him in my own way.

Somewhere down the line however, I stopped planning and surprising my husband with signs of my affection; between keeping up the house, working two jobs, and three kids, sometimes it feels like we operate more as friendly roommates rather than husband and wife.

But this weekend, when we left the baby with a sitter and attended a family wedding, I was reminded, with the help of several generous servings of vodka and cranberry tonic drinks, how much fun it is to re-connect. 

And so this week, I’m inspired to focus on a few fun (and easy, because let’s face it, I don’t have all day) to show my husband how much I love him.


13 Fun + Easy Ways to Say “I Love You”

Sit next to your husband in a booth.

Yes, this one's a bit sappy, but I still think it's cute and sometimes it's fun to mix it up at a restaurant by choosing a cozy corner booth and sitting side-by-side instead of across from each other. And, it makes holding hands under the table even easier.
