Gestures of Love

For today's Midweek Romance tip, saying "I Love You" is mandatory....words, however, are optional. Here are two ways to"say" those three magical words without moving your lips! The point is to email or mail these pictures to your love while they are at work, school, etc.

This is my friend, Meagan. I owe her big time for making her be my model for this. But, she did a fabulous job and I have a feeling her hubby is going to love receiving an email someday soon with these pictures attached...

Another wordless "I Love You" is an idea from Becca over at Happiness is Homemade. Becca took these pictures of her hands to spell it out for her hubby.
How cool is that?! I think my husband would love to get a personalized version of this (with my hands) sent to his email...wouldn't yours?

How to do it:
(sorry, I don't think your spouse will enjoy a picture of Meagan's "I love you" or Becca's hands--they are both beautiful, but it's gotta be YOU!)

- Take your digital pictures and upload.
- Edit them to make them look super good! Picasa is an excellent and easy-to-use editor (that edits in lots of fun ways) and you can download the program online for free HERE.
- Organize the photos in a word document. (size and layer them the way you want).
- Save the word document as a PDF.
- Then, send your hubby an email with the PDF attached. Tell him it's a very urgent document that requires his immediate attention.

Voila! You've got one happy husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend, fiance....and if you're not one of these...then what the heck are you saying "I Love You" for anyhow?!

My sister had her little step-son do that to display at her wedding, but I never thought about doing it with my own hubby. Thanks for the great ideas!

These are so cute. I think I may save this for my husband's upcoming deployment... perhaps create some sort of screen saver for him before he leaves...

After I took the pictures of my hands, I printed them out and framed each letter in a cheap 4 X 6 black Wal-Mart frame and then hung it up on the wall in our bedroom for a surprise when he got home. He loved it. :)
