L is for Letters and Laws

Welcome to the A to Z blogging challenge where for the month of April we post everyday except Sundays, corresponding to each letter of the alphabet. I've chosen to blog about keeping the romance alive in a relationship along with ideas for married couple dates. Each post will also have a romantic song for you to listen to whilst you read.

Today's song is from Lonestar - Amazed. I love this song and the words are so special;

I'm so in love with you
It just keeps getting better
I wanna spend the rest of my life
With you by my side
Forever and ever

When was the last time that you wrote your special one a letter (and no, notes about things you need at the shops do not count)? Did you ever write each other letters before you were married or committed to each other forever?

Letters don't have to be posted, but this is a nice surprise if you post them to arrive when you're not in the house. A letter left on a pillow, in the fridge, or tucked into the pocket of a coat can all be really lovely ways to make your person's day.

Before we got married I used to write a law according to Pamela J and leave them for my beloved to find - he kept all of these so a few years ago I typed them all up and put them in a photobook for him. We  have both kept all the letters, cards, and poems that we've been given by the other over the last two and a bit decades.

Why don't you take the time this week to write an actual letter rather than send a text, e-mail, or instant message. It doesn't have to be on plain white paper, you can choose any colour paper you like, and any pen you like, including ones with sparkles in them. You could even leave a little love note on a mirror written in lipstick.

Today's quote is something that I hope is true - lets keep the handwritten letter alive.

  1. Love this post. My husband and I fell in love through letters. I met him when he was on military leave, visiting his parents who had moved to the town where I lived. He stole my address and started writing, then year later, when he returned on leave, he proposed. I said yes. We hadn't even dated yet.

    1. That's so romantic and shows the true power of letters.

  2. Hi Pam - I must write some letters out ... but they won't be love ones! Great idea you've both had - cheers Hilary

  3. Love this post and your laws - those are rules to live by ;-) #7, haha. Unfortunately in our marriage this applies to the hubby.
    "Amazed" as you know is one of the songs that take me right back to living in San Diego. Thank you for making me listen to it, I've got itchy feet now...
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Glad you liked it and did think you'd be pleased about Lonestar being in the post.

  4. I often wonder what record our generation will leave for later ones to find, since so much is electronic nowadays, we don't have lots of letters left in old trunks to tell them about us. They will have to be digital investigators.

    1. What a sad thought - I think everyone should have the joy of opening up letters or journals from the past.

  5. Not married so no letters. Always liked Lonestar's songs. thank you for this post. interesting to see your A-Z challenge posts.

  6. Writing love letters is sweet. If you have a romantic relationship, it's a good way to keep the spark alive.

  7. That is a wonderful idea. I have saved all the post it notes from over 25 years, but that is not the same as a real letter. Great song. XO

    1. I love post it notes - so easy to stick in unusual places for your loved one to find.
