We like to go to the beach and spend the day together. We also go out to dinner on occasion.

Backpacking and canoe trips for bigger celebrations, and one of us will make dinner or bake cookies for the other once in awhile 🙂

We like to plan little trips by ourselves away from the kids.

I think it’s the little things. He leaves earlier for work than I do in the winter, so he’ll clear off my car for me (darn PA snow & frost). In turn, I’ll make his lunch every night so that he doesn’t have to worry about it in the morning. He also loves to grocery shop (which I hate), so he’ll do that while I make him dinner. And he’ll pick up little things for me like my favorite popcorn while he’s there. The little things that show we care

It is definitely in the little things– me bringing him his favorite soda at the end of a long day, him taking out the trash on his way out, writing letters to each other, sweet facebook messages or tweets (yeah, we’re one of THOSE couples), holding hands… so many ways, but they all say the same thing!

Little things. Like I pack his lunch in the morning (my mom did this for my dad and I said I never would-funny how love changes things!) and he brings me coffee and sometimes even breakfast in bed on the weekends.

Tessa, this weekend Mr.Rain surprised me by showing up with coffee and cinnamon toast! It was so sweet! Unfortunately I am NOT a breakfast person. I can never eat when I first wake up. So i had to hop in the shower first and take some time getting ready before I could eat. I have a feeling that may be the first and last time I get breakfast in bed! But no doubt he will find another (more fitting) way to show his love 🙂

this is goin to sound cheesy, but in the simpilest form, we say "i love you" every minute we experience and feel our love.

The little ways he takes care of me. He’ll make sure my tires are properly inflated, change my oil for me, clean the snow off my car in the winter (seems to be a popular choice). I know he thinks it’s crazy how many kitchen supplies I have, but he’ll still come home from a trip to the store with a new gadget for me – once he even came home with a gorgeous red Kitchenaid frying pan for me. I love that, because he knows how much I love to cook and bake, and he doesn’t particularly like having so many kitchen items, but he knows it makes me happy so he buys me some anyway. He’s not a romantic person (I’ve received flowers once in almost three and a half years) so it helps to remind myself that these are the ways that he shows that he cares.

 For my part, first of all, I compliment him like crazy. Genuine compliments of course, like if the sun hits him a particular way and I can’t help but notice how handsome he looks in it, I’ll let him know right away. And I’ll forward him little quotes or stories that I find throughout the day that I’ll know he finds interesting. I bake for him a lot, and I also will buy him little things when I’m out and about if they remind me of him.

By saying "I love you" and meaning it. We rarely say "love you. Bye" It’s not an end to our conversations. It’s just those moments when one of us does something cute & we just haaaaave to say it!

it’s the little things really isn’t it, like doing the dishes because he does them most of the time so I know he’ll appreciate a night off!  He washes my car when he has a day off (and I don’t drive to work!), but we have "snowglobe days" where it’s just the two of us; we go somewhere away from our hometown where we won’t see people we know, and its a bit like having another ‘first date’, we chat about new things, share stories about ourselves, go for food etc. It all stemmed from when we first met we said we wanted to cocoon ourselves in our own little world, like a snowglobe (which was the first ever gift he gave me)!
