My love language is written notes


I purge through most things in our house, but I consistently keep any kind notes that people have written for me.  I shared once on here how finding a letter my sister wrote me helped me with her passing and how much it meant when a dear friend sent me a thoughtful card on a very blue day.  I have birthday cards from when I was 12 from my grandfather, I love writing letters to people, and I completely relish any thank you card I receive; I keep them all and read them often.  The more people write on the notes and the sappier they are, the more I probably pull them out to read them.  

It shouldn’t be surprising then that one of my favorite presents from our wedding was actually the messages people left on cards.  I still go through them and every time we have moved or have an anniversary, we sort through them and read the advice; what a sweet time to celebrate together with people and feel so, so loved!!

Admittedly, I also write down the nice things students or student’s parents have said to me about my teaching.  For several years in a row for Christmas, I have asked Devin to write a journal of what he remembers about our dating experiences and sometime he is going to realize that will probably give me the cheapest and most cherished gift he can give me 😉 .

I loved these cute sound cards from Hallmark for very obvious reasons now; I’m sappy and the sounds were really cute!  A lucky reader is going to be gifted a Hallmark Gift Package + $20 to celebrate someone special in their lives.  Be sure to look out for the new sound card from Hallmark.  The video below shows you what one of the cards sounds like and how to locate the cards in store!

What special moment would you celebrate with a sound card from Hallmark?

  • I love writing and sending out cards because I feel like it’s so much more personal and shows you took the time to think about someone!

    • Exactly!! I love that I know someone was thinking enough about me to not only pick out a card, but write something sweet to me.

  • I think card’s are amazing, because it take more effort than just a text, Facebook message etc.

  • My dad works as a calligrapher for Hallmark, and I think they really do a great job in making innovative cards. I’ve gotten several of the sound cards from him for birthdays, and they’re so much fun! Great giveaway!

  • This is such a sweet post! I love receiving cards– even and perhaps especially in this age of e-cards– and I really think the handwritten note goes a long way when it comes to saying thank-you!

    • Hand written notes…there is nothing better! My main love language is probably quality time, but words are a big one up there. I think just knowing that people are taking the time to write these kind things for me is what makes my heart melt!

    I love receiving cards because they’re old fashioned. It’s nice to receive an email, but a handheld gift is extra special.

    • When Devin and I were recently engaged, all of the women in his family sent me birthday cards. I was so touched by their thoughtfulness!!

  • I have a great fondness for written notes, too. They’re very easy to keep and bring so much joy when being reread! We had a little apple notepad when we were first married and I have lots of little apple-shaped notes from the husband stored away somewhere!

    • That’s so cute that you wrote notes back and forth together. My husband’s love language isn’t notes so when he sends me flowers or anything I keep all of the tags 🙂

    My favorite thing about receiving a thoughtful card is that the sender cared enough to remember me and took time to find the perfect card/message.

    • It is seriously the sweetest feeling that someone would dedicate the time to write a note, isn’t it? 🙂

    I love cards, I used to own quite a collection. They are special because the sender thinks about you, chooses the card only for you, writes a note. It’s fun to read old cards)

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one who loves to read old cards :). It always makes me feel so sappy!

    I got the nicest card from my vet, when one of our cats passed away. I have been rescuing cats for 45 years, and he was the first vet that ever did that.
