Love Louder: My Week 1 Projects

Love Louder Project - The Peaceful Mom

pinit

It’s February and this year I have decided to celebrate the entire month by intentionally loving my family better with my Love Louder Project.

My goal for this project is to share my love with my family in a “louder” way – to be more intentional and obvious about letting them know how much I care for and appreciate them.

For the next four weeks I’m sharing my little love projects so that you can join in if you want to love your family better.

 

This week’s theme is “Encouraging Words and Love Notes in Unusual Places”. I am making an extra effort to say uplifting and positive words to my family and  to post loving words around the house.

 

 

I Love You Screen Saver - The Peaceful Mom

I created this screen saver over the weekend to show my husband a little love. I also cleaned up and organized the short cuts because he dislikes clutter on the screen.

 Love Notes 1 - The Peaceful Mom

I wrote an individual message inside these note cards for each of my daughters and snuck them into their lunch bags for school today (they attend classes at a homeschool co-op).

I also taped a note for my son on the bathroom mirror just before he woke up. I plan on continuing to hide love notes throughout the week.

 

If you want to join in, here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Write a message on the bathroom mirror with a dry erase marker.
  • Leave sticky notes all over your special someone’s car dashboard.
  • Tape a note to the remote.
  • Place a card on top of your hubby’s favorite food in the refrigerator.
  • Leave a note in your teenager’s cosmetic bag, sports bag or backpack.
  • Cover a wall with a large banner spelled out on individual sheets of paper.

 

What other ideas do you have?

These are great ideas!
Sometimes Andrea gets home from work earlier than me, so I draw hearts with my finger on his car window, so he’ll see it the morning after when he goes to work.
And when the car is too clean to draw on windows – ha ha – I sometimes write a message on paper and leave it under the windshield wiper.

I love the ideas! Especially, changing the screensaver on the computer. Today, I wrote my husband a note and put it in his lunch bag. I hope he like. :-)

It seems like my son read your post. :) I have been finding little yellow post-it notes all over. One on my steering wheel that said, “Thank you for driving me everywhere.” One inside the crockpot lid saying, “Thanks for cooking my food.” And various “I love you” and “I love you so much” notes. Incredibly sweet! But it also makes me realize I should be doing something similar for him and the rest of my family. Nothing like a ten year old teaching you love. :)
