Conclusion- Ways to say I love you


We are always looking for ways to say I love you and show them how special they are to us. Honestly this is what keeps relationships together. Those simple things that we do or say that shows caring and appreciation.


Although a trip to Paris is amazing, if you only celebrate the big moments and not all the life that happens in between, you will lose some of your closeness. 


It’s the little things, the extra time that you spend together or doing something for them that you know they will love.Or just by looking them in the eye and telling them,” I’m so lucky that I found you.”


 Don’t save those meaningful thoughts for a Hallmark card and don’t only celebrate on a specific day.
