15 Days of Valentine’s Challenge

15 Days of Valentine’s Challenge

As a young girl, I would dress up in oversized dresses and heels and prance along the driveway singing at the top of my lungs, “SOMEDAY MY PRINCE WILL COME!!!” I was in love with the idea of love and what that would mean in my life. To be loved by someone who would choose to spend their whole life with you? What joy! How amazing! Now, I look at my husband and my heart is full.I have been blessed with a man more perfect for me than my daydreaming child mind could have imagined. Not a perfect man mind you – but a man I know God created with me in mind.

Our marriage is not perfect but God has used, and shapes, every mistake, every “I’m sorry,” every kiss, and every day into a beautiful example of His grace and goodness. My thoughts on love NOW are different from my 7-year-old mind – they are better. Maybe not perfect, but better.

So now, February is coming and with it comes “the day of love.” Valentine’s Day. Some hate this holiday and some love it, and others simply tolerate it.

I personally don’t mind it either way. I attempt to love my husband in little ways every day so he knows I love and appreciate him (no, I don’t always succeed) – but Valentine’s Day is basically a “set in stone date night” and I’m not complaining about that!

But lately, I have been praying and struggling through heart issues in my own life, and my sweet husband has been nothing but supportive through my hormonal upheaval. So, I feel the desire to TRULY do some things to remind Kyle just how much he means to me! HENCE – my 15 Days of Valentine’s Challenge.

My idea stems from the 12 Days of Christmas, with a different item being given every day until Christmas. But instead, I’m doing this with Valentines. Every day until Valentine’s Day I have come up with something different to show Kyle how much I love him and all he does for our family. Nothing big or expensive, but simply ways to make the month of February especially meaningful.

Do you want to join me in this challenge??

I would love for February to be a month of joy and love for all of the men in our lives! God has blessed us and is the epitome of love – let’s share some of that! <3 <3

February 12th:

Put something nice/sexy on and surprise him after the kids go to bed! (Dillards has some really nice options in this department 🙂 )February 13th:

Turn on music and dance together (or if you aren’t a dancer, play a game! Some favorites of my husband and I are cribbage, Yahtzee, Tenzi, a favorite puzzle, Mexican Train or sometimes we flip on Mario Kart Wii) 🙂

February 14th:

Make his favorite dinner/dessert combo complete with candles, a tent, music, sparkling cider, etc.  – make it romantic if you’re staying in or enjoy a night out for Valentine’s dinner!

February 15th:

Bring him coffee in bed again. Valentine’s day is over, yes. But it’s always good to do and say little things to our guys on a consistent basis! We shouldn’t need a national holiday to remind us!


Now Ladies – I do realize that every man is different! Adjust your challenge to your lifestyle, gravitated towards the things you know your husband will love! And most importantly,  remember to pray for your man! Nothing could be more powerful and more loving than to be a wife that prayers over her husband.

Let’s pray together and watch what the Lord can accomplish in our marriages this February! 🙂

67 Different Ways to Say I love you

Do you ever get stuck on “I love you?” Those three little words hold so much weight and yet at times I feel “I love you” just doesn’t encompass everything I feel in my heart! Sometimes you just need a new way to express that love to your husband.

So without further ado – here are 67 different ways to say I love you – other than just “I love you” 🙂

different ways to say i love you

I just recently took the Love Languages test again. The last time I took the test was before I was married and Kyle and I were just dating. I find it interesting how your love language can change throughout different parts of your life! My number one love language was COMPLETELY different than when I originally took the test. This is an important thing to keep in my for your husband as well. Every man is different and seasons change – perhaps at one point in time the best way to say “I love you” will be different than another.

Keep praying, friend! And keep a watchful eye out for the best ways to love your husband!
