A few years ago we tried out the idea of writing each other letters for our anniversary, and we loved it. It’s a thing we can pull out every now and again, maybe when we haven’t really been spending a lot of time together, and get a quick hit of that stuff that makes our relationship work.
This time we did it a bit differently. Over the course of the first few months of the year, we each wrote down a list of 100 things we love about the other person. It sounds like a lot, but it came surprisingly easy to both of us.
Then we arranged for a dinner date at DOC, an Italian restaurant that’s been on our radar for a while. We spent the entire time there taking turns reading our list items to each other, and thoroughly ruining the appetites of all the other patrons. It was disgusting. In fact, we hadn’t even finished by the end of our long, delicious, multi-course dinner, and had to go for a walk around the neighborhood in the dark to finish up. It took about three hours of grinning and warm fuzzies to finish.
We can’t recommend this enough. You don’t even need to make a plan or warn your partner, just surprise them one day with a big list! We promise, you won’t regret it.
And no, you don’t get to read our lists.
