I love you.
Valentine’s Day can put a lot of pressure on couples. Is there a perfect way to say those three simple words that mean so much.
Is the generic “I love you” along with a bunch of flowers enough? Or should lovers prepare a deep meaningful speech before a big kiss?
For me Valentine’s Day is always heralded with a beautifully set breakfast tray complete with some fresh-cut garden flowers…. usually a rose (and I suspect one rose has already been singled out for tomorrow’s breakfast)
For me it’s the personal attention that says loud and clear, I love you and you are the love of my life. And how do I reciprocate? By showing my appreciation of his thoughtfulness…. baking him something special….my DH has a very soft spot for scones.
Valentine’s Day is one of those special days in our house that we can say to each other, for no particular reason, that I love you and I appreciate you.
And it seems I’m not alone. A recent survey done by a Texas firm found that…
“Personal and present tense rose to the top versus sayings like ‘You were the love of my life.’” Both sexes agreed that “I think that I love you” is the worst way to express your love, so make sure you know before you convey your love…”
I am quite, quite sure if my DH brought me a breakfast tray and said “I think I love you”….said breakfast tray could easily become a weapon.
