Pieces of Passion 2 – Love Notes

Pieces of Passion
Piece #2- Love Notes

In our culture of text messages and fast food, we have forgotten much of the art of the love note. More than a card picked up at the store to be given only on special occasions, love notes can take a thousand forms. Consider doing one of the following to remind your sweetie how special they are to you:

-Hand-making paper, or buy nice paper and make your own card.
-Write notes by hand (unless your handwriting is abyssmal, but then still sign it by hand).
-Hide a note in their briefcase or purse to find later.
-Put a tiny dot of your cologne, perfume, or other favorite scent (bacon, your body, fresh herbs) on the paper… but not too much.
-Use a pen that is yours or their favorite color.
-Sealing notes with wax or a sticker, or sealing envelope then writing over the seam/seal.
-Keep a store of postcards and drop one in the mail every once in a while… even if they live with you.

Love notes can be a single word of power waiting on a pillow or a twenty page letter given to your partner before they go on the road (and for extra oomph, consider handing them 7 envelopes, with a date on each one, for the 7 days they will be gone). The important part is the power of paper in our hand, not hard plastic- step back and breathe in the parchment, and know that they care, and you about them.

Go forth, play with your passions, and enjoy!
