Love on a postcard


i love you (some more)

I was out of town a couple of weeks ago and my sweetie and a couple of the rug rats were left home. We have made it a tradition for me to send postcards home when I am away. It is fun to find postcards of the things I have been seeing and share that with the family back home.

Three postcards were purchased, addressed, stamped and sent at the same time. All were dropped into the same mailbox. You would therefore expect that the postcards would arrive home at the same time. You would be mistaken. The first arrived 3 days later. The second arrived the following day and the third two days after that. I wonder if the post office workers do that on purpose just to have a bit of fun.

I tell you that story to bring out the point: Let your sweetie know you are thinking about them even when you are not together. It is a very simple and effective way of bringing romance into a relationship. Some simple ideas:
* Send your sweetie a postcard, even if you are not out of town. You can send it to work or home.
* Send a greeting card with a hand written note. This can be a little more personal than the post card because the card is sealed in an envelope and now one but the addressee will read it.
* Hide some treats, notes or other personal items for your sweetie l in places where they will be found late. Hide it in their lunch, in a briefcase, under a pillow (treats need to go into a baggie), in the laundry soap, etc.

Do this soon and tell me what you did and how it turned out. If you have other ideas of simple surprises to let your sweetheart know they are being thought about, let me know in the comments.
