Prompt 12:  Reminisce about the first time you said, “I love you” to your spouse.

I write personal things about my marriage all the time on this blog, but for some reason this prompt is eliciting a, “Hey none of your business” reaction from me (yes I see the irony that I came up with the prompt).

Its just that this memory is so deeply mushy that telling you all the details just might make you all suffocate from the vast amounts of mush oozing out from the words of this story.  And I like you, so I wouldn’t want to do that.

Anyway, I’ll set the stage of the day.  It was a Saturday.  Rich and I had just competed in a local ballroom competition all day (not as partners).  We were exhausted but in high spirits and finally made it back to my place around 10pm.  We started snuggling on the couch.

And thus were the circumstances of the sappiest conversation that ever did sap.

Not that same day but taken a few weeks later.

So there you go 🙂

Ok your turn!  What are your memories from when you first said, “I love you”?

Remember, even thinking it in your mind can help fill your love tank.  So even if you don’t comment- think about it!

Oh!  And I put all of the love prompts into a handy dandy printable so you can print it out, fill them out and give all the love letters to your spouse as a gift!   Click here to download:   14 days of love printout

  1. We were watching 127 hours. Where the guy chops his own arm off. (You know, the most romantic movie ever.) Toward the very end, he just goes, “So… I love you. And I just said, “Thanks!” And then said sorry. You see, at the time I was trainwreck of emotions. Our relationship had been stop and go since day 1, because I’d been through an awful and unexpected breakup before dating him. I was quite cautious. And he was getting ready to leave for a year for Military duty. Two days later, (like a week before he shipped out), I said it back. Then I had to endure the awful year apart. But it was worth it!!!
