My Guy and I have a small little tradition. We like to leave each other notes. We have since we started dating. Notes in the morning by the coffee… notes in lunch boxes… notes on the mirror to see when the shower steams up… notes in a little red mailbox I decorated and we put the flag up when there is a note in it… I know- it’s mushy! But it really helps us keep that romance alive!
When The Boy moved in a few weeks ago, we told him, keep an eye on the mirror, you never know when there could be a note for you. Feel free to write anything you might want on there too! He didn’t seem thrilled- LOL – but I felt like he was game. The first note we left him was something like “Looking Good!” … he wrote “Korn” (the name of his favorite band!) I stood there and laughed and laughed when I saw that. I called My Guy giggling and got him giggling too! Clearly The Boy didn’t get it… yet.
The next week- I left my note for My Guy! (I <3 You!) and on the front mirror there was a note… It was hard to read- but I thought it was going to be a good one! So- as soon as My Guy got home- I dragged him into the bathroom, we shut the door and turned on the shower full steam! The note appeared… we STILL couldn’t tell for sure… but we both agreed- it had something to do with “liking the food…”
***Backstory- When we were discussing with The Boy the conditions and things to know about living here- we were very clear that junk food and soda would NOT be part of this lifestyle. I promised him he would not starve- but also that I would not make him separate meals all the time and we would not buy junk food and he was not to bring it home. He was a bit worried about all that, but agreed anyway!***
At dinner that night- we eat dinner together as a family every weeknight, as a rule, and most weekend nights too- we asked him “What does it say!??”
“I am liking the food more than I thought!”
Yep- Love Notes… it’s where it’s at! <3
