We aren’t big celebrators of Valentine’s Day. It’s not because we don’t love each other. We just don’t like to dump a lot of money into one day. We truly and honestly try to show our love consistently during the year.
But I figured after my post about being proactive in focusing on your marriage, I should show you what I decided to do here in the Pratt house. I’m making hubs a dry erase love note.
And because I’m all about frugality, there was no way this was going to cost me a lot of money. It cost me a grand total of…
Yes, that says $1.99. You see, I went to my local thrift store hunting for a frame. The important “must have,” though, was that it needed to have glass in it. I couldn’t find a plain frame. But it did find this:
So I emptied the piggy bank and brought it home so I could tear it apart.
I printed the love note on my printer
painted the frame and put it all together! Then all we have to do is use a dry erase marker to fill in the blank by writing on the glass. Cute, huh?
Initially, I was planning to hang this in our bedroom, but it occurred to me that there was something to be gained by allowing our kids to see us posting love notes to each other. So I hung it right in our family room.
I love this!

So what about you? Are you doing anything special for Valentine’s Day? Or doing something to invest in your marriage? I hope so!
