true romance

When my husband and I were first dating, I lived in a tiny dive basement studio. 
One day I came home from work to discover that my beloved had drawn tons of these 
little hearts in chalk, all over my stoop. I already knew I wanted to marry the boy, 
but this small romantic gesture made me fall in love with him just a little bit more.

It's all about the little things in life and in love, right?
What small yet significant act of love
does your partner do for you?

PS. Pardon the crappy photos. This was back when my life
was documented with a Kodak EasyShare.


  1. wow. this is..... wow. so sweet! being in love is so much fun :)

  2. Very sweet. Looks like you've got yourself a keeper!

  3. This is amazing! Defintely a keeper <3

  4. ohmygosh i loveeeee this!!!!!!!!!
    i too had a kodak easyshare =)


  5. what a man. no wonder you married him!

    my new husband does the sweetest small things- like making the bed, washing all the dishes, washing and folding all the laundry on days when i'm working and he isn't. he also hand makes all of my birthday, valentine and just-because cards. it melts me every time.

  6. This is the cutest thing ever!

  7. cute!

    i recently went on a train ride for a weekend to falmouth, and my boyfriend met me at the train station so we could have a coffee before i left - and have a mushy goodbye, of course.

    when i was getting the coffees, he slipped an envelope into my bag, and when we were saying goodbye he said 'you will read something on the train, you don't know you have yet...' and said nothing else about it.

    i just thought i would get a message from facebook through my phone from him, but when i went into my bag to get out my magazine for the journey, inside was an envelope, inside another envelope, and then the most gorgeous love letter!

    little things indeed!

  8. this is so sweet! and i love your little PS hahah :)

  9. What an adorable story! I think my heart just melted.
