Gimme Some Love

Love is in the air…and on the door!

It’s the season of love so we are gearing up for Valentine’s Day!

This idea has been floating around social media for a few weeks.  I’m not sure of the original source as so many people have shared it and reposted it.  My sincere thanks to whomever the brilliant, innovative person is who thought this up.

Here’s how it works. Starting February 1st, every night while they are sleeping, you tack a heart to your child’s bedroom door professing what you love about them.  Super simple to do and the impact is huge!  Here are some example of what I have written:

You are a really good friend.

You always look after everyone and make sure they’re okay.

We are so proud of you.  Proud of who you are.  Proud of what you do.

You are so artistic!  Your art is amazing!

You are beautiful, inside and out!

My children wake up so excited to see what has been added to their doors.  A little tidbit of love to start their day off on the right foot and fill them with all of my love.  The bonus is that it delays the sibling fighting for all of five minutes! Hahaha!  But seriously, it is a little thing that warms them and reminds them how much we love them.

You could do this for your significant other too!  You could tape hearts full of love on the bathroom mirror for them to read while getting ready in the morning or maybe sneak them into their bag/purse or tape them to the dashboard of their car. That would be such a nice surprise!

How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?  How do you show your love?

  1. I’m so inspired! I always give my kids Valentine’s cards and gifts, but I think I’ll kick it up a notch this year and surprise them with love notes on their bathroom mirror, praising their uniqueness and what they bring to our family! Thank you!

  2. This is a brilliant idea. When I weigh myself every morning, in the same spot, the their day I went for my daily beating//weighing and stuck to the wall was a not that said ‘You are amazing!’ -a few months ago he wrote a letter and put it on the fridge. He calls me his queen. I think I should start reciprocating. Such a simple act but can have such a powerful effect on someones mood.
