Since Alyson’s big day is today, I thought I’d share a tiny bit of advice for any other newlyweds out there – write love letters. My husband and I have been married for more than two years, and my husband still sends me little love notes every now and then. The timing is totally random, and every time one shows up – either in our mailbox or as a note left on a pillow or desk top – I can’t help but smile. My husband and I see each other every single day and it can be easy to get bogged down by all the things that go into daily life – cleaning our apartment, paying bills, running errands on the weekends. These little notes are a sweet reminder of our love for each other and the fact that we chose to spend the rest of our lives together, both the fun parts and the not-so-fun parts. I’ve kept every single note in a little box on my bedside table and every time I look through that box I realize all over again why he’s the perfect person for me.
