Yet all too often, we forget to say “I see you,” “I hear you,” and “I love you” to the people around us. Or nestled in a duvet cover, right next to us.
Consider this your official reminder.
Here are 30 tweetable / textable / easy-to-sayable one-sentence love notes:
Send ’em to someone you love — romantically, platonically, or somewhere in betweenically.
And send ’em today.
❤ If you were a blog, I’d bookmark you so hard.
❤ If you were a cookie, I’d totally not share.
❤ If you were a book, I’d read you cover-to-cover. And write the BEST Amazon.com review.
❤ If you were a mouse, I’d Lennie you. (But not on purpose.)
❤ If you were a celebrity & I was a teenager, I’d totally have a creepy shrine about you in my bedroom.
❤ Thank you for being my sanctuary.
❤ Thank you for granting me unlimited squeezing & kissing privileges. (They will not be squandered.)
❤ Thank you for making my life feel like a never-ending slumber party.
❤ Thank you for existing. It makes my day. Every day.
❤ Thank you for seeing the best in me, and sharing the best in you.
❤ Thank you for being so easy to love.
❤ Thank you for helping me practice being in love. (I’m getting really good at it.)
❤ I don’t know where love comes from — but I’m pretty sure you had somethin’ to do with it.
❤ I don’t know how you stay so darn cute — but please, carry on.
❤ I don’t know if it’s possible to bottle your hotness & sell it — but if so, we’re gonna be rich!
❤ I don’t know if there’s a Guinness World Record for snuggling, but I say we go for it.
❤ You’re so wise, I bet the Dalai Lama has you on speed-dial.
❤ You’re so kind, you make Mother Teresa look like a total brat.
❤ You’re so smart, you single-handedly spike the collective IQ level of the planet.
❤ You’re so pretty, it makes me nervous.
❤ If you ever leave me, I will survive. But only after throwing the world’s biggest tantrum. And listening to every Smiths album, ever.
❤ I love every moment, every micro-moment, and every micro-milli-moment with you.
❤ I love you more than Oprah loves her Favorite Things.
❤ I love you more than Paula Deen loves butter.
❤ I love you more than Dolly Parton loves peroxide. And biscuits.
❤ I love you more than hot cocoa on Christmas morning.
❤ I love your face. More than Facebook.
❤ I love your lips. Especially when they’re so close, I can’t see them.
❤ I love the way you move through the world.
❤ I love the way you make me feel.
Do you have any? Please contribute them in the comment section below! I’d love to hear them!
