i love you because...

Jordan's love language is affirmation.  

If you don't know what I'm talking about when I say love language, you should go read this book.  LIke, go order it now.  And read it.  You will be glad you did.  And your husband will be even more excited that you did.  Then, go buy him the audio version so he can listen to it in his car.  You'll be glad you did that, too.  I'm speaking from experience here :)

Back when I was posting my goals, one of my February goals was about not doing a good job of affirming Jordan.  Carrie left a comment that I should make a "I love you because:" frame.

So, I printed this out and put it in a frame in our bathroom.  

I just keep a dry-erase marker behind the frame.  For months I filled in the blank with something every day.  I would put serious things or funny things.  Jordan really loved it.   In fact, if it got late and I still hadn't changed it for the day, he would make a comment about it.  

I have not kept up with it recently but I thought I should share!  Just in case your husband loves him some affirmation like mine does! 


  1. OK, for us non-crafty aunts, when can you show me how to do this?? Luv ya. CaCa

  2. Could you put up a printable on your blog? I would love to do this with my hubby too!
