message journal


A few years back, we used to live in a tiny tree-house-like apartment that somehow didn't seem so small at the time. I kept a thick journal by the phone for message writing (sticky notes and tiny paper scraps always seemed to disappear). Once in a while there would be a sweet love note amongst the daily scribbles of appointment reminders, and it would leave a plastered smile on my face for a week. I think it's time for a new message journal, purely for the element of surprise.

my boyfriend and i have a chalkboard in our kitchen and we'll write silly little love notes to each other from time to time and you're right...it's always a great way to start the day!

My Mom and Step-Dad actually do answer the phone "I love you" instead of "hello" when they know it's the other person. (thank goodness for caller id!) It's very sweet.

This sounds like a wonderful tradition to have! I've been on the hunt for the perfect chalkboard within my price range... For just this very reason!
