I’m interested in seeing the responses because my Darling Husband and I just have them in a drawer right now.  Thanks for asking the Bees!

We have a special box we keep all the letters and cards we give each other.  That way we can open it any time and re-live the love πŸ™‚

Hmmm.  My inclination would be to shred them.  To each her own, I guess.

Why don’t you make a time capsule out of them, and just don’t bury it, but lock it up somewhere and look at it agian on your 10 year aniversary.  You could place some other things in there like a take out menu from your favorite restaurant, a dvd of your favorite movie, little things that remind you of the year you got married.

He has an “itshouldsnow box” and I have a “FI’s name box” that we keep movie stubs, concert tickets, notes, cards, etc. I’ve seen a super cute idea on pinterest for displaying them in a frame:

@Mrs.Goguen:  My Darling Husband has the cards I’ve given him a drawer with a rubberband around them.  I told him that I wanted to look at them over the weekend and he was very protective.  He shared with me that he has all of the cards in order that he’s received them.  I think maybe I’ll make a booklet somehow in the future…in order, of course!

I used some of them as backgrounds in a scrap book from our first 2 years together

I just wanted to tell you that my mom showed me a box of love letters my dad had written to her over the years they dated back in the early 60s.  She let me read them and they are so adorable.  They are still married, 45 years later, by the way.

Whatever you do, I vote you let your kids see them one day; I can’t tell you how much it meant to me to see them.

Of course, their letters were extremely PG and old fashioned, so maybe rethink my advice if yours are a bit raunchy, lol!

ETA: Much to my embarrassment, I’ve just realized that I made a big assumption in saying “your kids” since I don’t even know if you two are planning to have children.  Sorry about that!  I didn’t mean any offense if you’re CBC!
