    Saying I Love You on a Budget

    Some have very tight budgets so how can you say I love you without spending much money?

    Share your ideas!

    Silly, money can't buy love or truly show it. The best way to say I love you is to just say it!!! and if you are with the person then give them a huge hug while you do it... now that's a great I love you!

    But for those of us that hear it everyday; a special effort from time to time is very appreciated. Something romantic or something that allows us to focus on being a couple or whatever the relationship is allows bonds to be strengthened or even renewed.

     DH always tells me he loves me,  but vacuuming the floors, WOW - now that's romantic!  Just makes me feel all warm and cozy inside.  Especially because I know how hard it is for him as his legs are affected by MD.

    We each define that differently, don't we?

    I am not into diamonds, roses and elegant dinner but time put aside by my husband to spend with me really is romantic to me. It's the effort that says I do care.

    A  nice quiet evening with a favorite home cooked meal served by candlelight and cuddle up together on the couch to watch a movie afterwards. Maybe a picnic lunch at the park or beach or living room floor.

    Doing things like warming up the car for your S.O. on a cold winter morning before they go to work. It's a small creature comfort, but the difference between getting into a freezing car (with ice on the windows) and having to wait for it to warm up, versus getting into a warmed, de-iced, ready-to-go car is ... paradise!

     I think that everyone has a talent they can use to say I Love You. I always loved make a special meal for my late to DH or he would surprise me with breakfast in bed. He loved to write and I have several poems he wrote for me over the years. Things like that are irreplacable and I cherish the envelope of poetry I have.
