I told you about our questions. Now, I’m going to tell you about our journal. This might be one of my absolute favorite things. I love love words in all forms and so getting love letters from my husband makes my day. I stumbled across the list of questions and the journal all in one spot even! After I got back from Greece, I had a journal stashed away that was plain and kind of boring compared to my normal bright, crazy, happy style. I hadn’t used it and so I figured even though we are just dating it would be fun to start now. I penned a few words, added the date, and stuck it in Ryan’s refrigerator I waited and waited until then I happened to find that he’d returned the favor by hiding it for me. This led to months of writing and hiding. Tucked away in his lunch box, in a drawer, in the microwave, in the shower, hidden in the DVDs, in a backpack, in a cereal box, and all sorts of places. Sometimes we’ll write serious and sometimes we’ll be silly. This has been such a fun way to have something to look forward to and to communicate as well as encourage each other in a different way. We put our first journal in our wedding box so we’re on our second already. I can’t wait to see how many we go through over the years. Oh and if you’re over at our house and happen to see a journal in a weird spot….I wouldn’t suggest opening it!
Have you ever tried this with your spouse or your kids or roommates? I think it would be so fun to have a family journal too someday!
