Could you cultivate a closer connection with one another by starting to leave simple but powerful notes?  Could you be the author of simple words on a sticky note that show the person you love the most how much he or she is on your mind and heart? You don’t have to be a poet, and if you spell something wrong, you just might endear yourself to his or her heart even more.

Here are some ideas (and yes, some of them are song rip-offs) of simple, yet much appreciated,  notes for the love of your life:  

  • You’re still the one.
  • I’m so lucky  to have you.
  • You’ve stolen my heart with a simple glance of your eyes.  (Yep, the Song of Solomon 1 in the Bible has great lines for you to plagiarize and pass off as your own!)
  • You still look hot! (For some reason, that one never fails.)
  • Can’t wait to see you tonight
  • You’re the best.
  • Thanks for all your hard work.
  • I appreciate all you do.
  • Put a sticky note on your husband's or wife's  dashboard or steering wheel that says “You still drive me wild."

Are you getting the idea? This is one of the simplest ways to endear your spouse’s heart to yours. Experience a closer connection today through the power of a note.
