Being a newlywed, I catch myself thinking a lot about the little reasons I love my husband. I love how he HAS to hold the toothpaste while he brushes his teeth, how fresh herbs bring him immense joy, how he holds my hand even when we're just walking to the other room, how ridiculously ticklish he is, how safe he makes me feel, how he can work the scientific equation into normal conversation. I don't want to forget about these little things and all the magical moments we'll share in our first year of marriage together.
So we made a love jar. We took a big glass jar and placed it on a shelf in the bedroom. Next to it is a simple notepad and pen. So now we jot those things down, fold them up and tuck them away in this jar. Sometimes i write down something silly he's said or draw a picture of something from a day we've spent together or thank him for remembering to take out the trash. They are little things, but they are filling up quickly right before our eyes.
And there's just one rule: No peeking until our one year anniversary!
