Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, this morning I found our journal hidden in my mailbox at work. Three points for writing one of my favorite letters of all time, two points for sleeping like a bear because of carrot lotion. Dear Pectin, this weekend I will sock you with blueberries and you will punch me with jam. Already looking forward to opening a jar when the first snow flies. Dear Scrubs, you are never inside out when I fold you. Thanks for making laundry even more awe-to-the-some . Dear Beloved, last night I noticed you saved me the last piece of apple pie. Pretty sure this made me want to kiss your money skin. Over and out.

nina, we've had our journal for 4 yrs ... almost time to get a new one. it's been one of the best things we've done for our marriage!

totally going to start a journal stat, as in tomorrow. it's a good thing that my husband loves office supplies as much as I do and ALMOST more than he loves me. he'll be all over this idea like Mr. Loerke on your money skin. After we've done it for a month or so, I'll scan a few shots to share with you. deals?

question - do you alternate days? he has it on monday, hides it for you to get tuesday, you write in it on tuesday and hide for him on wednesday? I know, elementary questions. I'm just so overcome by the cute that I can't think for my own self!

Today's Letters said...

sara, we actually only pass our journal back and forth on a weekly basis (not daily). whoever has it is responsible for hiding it for the other to find. it's a fun game :)

Cristie Good said...

Are there "rules" for the journal? Do you write about anything and everything or mostly do you use it as a way to encourage each other?

Today's Letters said...

cristie, we only use it as a form of encouragement. both tim and i are big words of affirmation people so it's a great way to encourage each other. as far as any constructive criticism we leave that for our weekly meeting on sunday nights when we ask our tues questions. sounds confusing, i know, but we do our tues questions on sun eves. this is our designated time each week when we know we can bring anything to the table for discussion. make sense?

Cristie Good said...

yep! got it, and thanks.

Crystal said...

I love this and employ such a journal with my best friend. We've been writing in and swapping it back & forth with one another for several years which has served as an amazing trip down memory lane during our girls trips! I'm going to try to introduce this idea to my husband as well, via a well-placed journal with it's first entry. He's great at giving cards at random times so I'd love to see what he'd write in a journal!

Vanessa said...

much love,
vanessa

i remember reading something about carrot lotion on your blog and I never heard of such a thing till after that moment. So I found some at the store and it is heavenly! I assume you use Yes to Carrots? Well, just fyi, found a deal on their products :) money saving help from one wife to another: http://www.plumdistrict.com/deals/yes-to-15-for-35-worth-of-natural-skin-and-hair-products-from-yes-to-COmKRi?utm_source=Email&utm_campaign=1&DEALID=26105&utm_medium=57

Love this idea. My husband and I have been together since high school, so I remember those cute love letters of encouragement to eachother. He is in the military and we have done letters through basic training and emails through the last two deployments. What a great idea to continue this. Why didn't I think of this myself. Thanks!

Angela said...

This is such a fabulous idea. I write in a journal all the time and I actually used to do this with my best girl friend back in high school. I know you guys are married, but do you think a dating couple would be fine doing this as well? My boyfriend is definitely my best friend and hopefully one day he becomes my husband. I may throw this idea out there because I think it would just bring us even closer together :)

Today's Letters said...

angela, great question! i think this idea could def be used for a dating couple. i'd just be careful to keep your entries light and encouraging. almost like you were writing to a best friend vs boyfriend. this is to guard both of your hearts until marriage.

Kimberlee said...

Thank you for sharing this wonderful idea! July 15th was our 1 year wedding anniversary. Before we were married we had some long distance times in which we wrote letters to each other on a regular basis. I surprised my husband with a journal for our anniversary, it has been a great way to share our thoughts and feelings in a different way. Thank you for being an inspiration!
