1. What a lovely memory. Husbands can surprise us at times, can’t they? My husband and I worked together when we were dating and he would write me love notes on phone message pads. I’ve kept them all. ♥ Diane

      Diane, that’s sweet. It can be a napkin, a phone pad, or a sticky note. When men write how they feel about us, we treasure it forever. If only they knew how easy we really are!!! Thanks for sharing yoru story!

    My beau hates writing love letters because he doesn’t think he’s “good at them” and can’t express himself properly, lol. He’s actually better off expressing himself in on-the-moment texts: “I really miss you right now,” “You love me today?” “I’m really stressed out. Can’t wait to see you later.” And I definitely appreciate those because I know they come from the heart. I actually used to write him plenty of love letters when we started dating. The first day we met face to face (16 then, I’m 24 now–going strong!) after talking for months on the phone was when I gave him my first love letter. He told me loved Winnie the Pooh as a kid so I wrote up a love letter, asking him to be my boyfriend and drew Winnie the Pooh on it. I think this blog is the only place I’ve ever shared this story! lol Oh, and he did LOVE the Pooh bear letter. lol

      OK, that is just so awesome, I love that story! You made him remember you forever with that. I know most men aren’t great at the standard love letter, but like you said, the texting is sometimes a short format of telling you he’s thinking about you. Thanks so much for sharing – I love true romantic stories!

  3. This was so lovely!! In addition to the love letters I receive from people, be it husband, parents, children and friends, I always count the Bible as a love letter to me from God. I know it sounds hokey and incredibly overly sentimental, but its truly what I do…

    • jennifer121 says:

      No, I don’t think that’s hokey at all! One of the greatest books of all time and chock full of beautiful and inspiring stories. So glad you stopped by!

  4. Thanks, Jennifer, it was my pleasure…

    I still have the love letters my husband sent when we were dating and one when we were first married – also have the cards that came with the flowers he sent.
    Love reading old love letters – I did a post for valentines day on it too.

  6. My husband wrote me a love letter once and once was enough. I had to wait until he returned so he could tell me what he wrote. He’s a doctor, you know.

  7. @ Janet LOL. Deciphering a doctor’s love letters. That made me smile. 🙂

  8. What a beautiful post, Jen. If made me think of all those little lunch box love letters I’ve sent over the years. My oldest is 20 and away at college, but I still send him love letters of a sort. Once a week or so right before lights out (he’s ROTC) I text, “Sleep tight, your Mama loves you.”

  9. That was so refreshing to read… I love the way words were used so long ago… Passionate, romantic, bold. Thank you for taking the time to share such a beautiful piece. I am so glad I found your site.

      I’m so glad you stopped by and liked the entry! I checked out your site and you have some beautiful jewelry -and one of my mottos in life is from the famous Nemo: just keep swimming!

      • Thank you so much! Our logo is from a cookie jar that we bought, it reminded us of our daughter (now 20) who when after she watched Finding Nemo would run around making fishy faces all the time. Just seeing still makes me smile.

  10. Very nice, Jen. As always.

    Hi Jen – The kiddie love notes are so sweet. I do that for my son, too. I hope he doesn’t declare himself to old for it any time soon.

    As for receiving love letters – I have to say I have been sadly deprived. the closest I can come up with is when my DH writes “mushy” stuff in my birthdy cards. LOL.

    • jennifer121 says:

      HI Tara! I know – I love the kiddie notes. The other night my son asked me to write some new ones because he realized I had “recycled” a few!! And I personally think mushy stuff in birthday cards counts as a love note!!

  12. I wasnt sure were to post this, but congratulations on your book today!!!!

    I recently found some letters I’d written to my grandparents when I was a kid, along with their replies. A different kind of love letter, to be sure, but still brought back sweet nostalgia 😀
