For my 6th wedding anniversary last month, I turned over a new leaf, I gave my husband a nice manly-looking lunch bag and vowed to make him lunch...until death do us part.
For me, making lunch for him is not about feeding him or doing my wifely duty, it's about showing him that I love him, and reminding him that we care about him here at home while he is away at work. (If you don't do this on a daily basis...which I didn't until now...it might be a nice Father's Day gift idea!)
Of course, in addition to lunch, I slip a little note in his lunch bag.
Earlier this year, I discovered these cool Lunchbox Love Notes for Kids. My kids don't go to school yet, so I have started packing these babies in my husband's lunch box, instead. "Say Please", started this line of stationery, featuring positive messages, as a counter-culture to the rude sayings that were showing up on children's t-shirts! They believe, as I do, that positive words can change the world. It can change your life and how you feel about yourself. It can change your relationship with your spouse, the mood in your home, and your relationship with your neighbors. And that is how the world is changed...one interaction at a time.
Just so you know, I don't have sponsors on my site.
If I feature a product, it is because I love that product, it makes my family happy, it supports the purpose of my blog, and I think it's worth sharing with all of you! So, as I was getting ready to talk about these little note cards, I decided to see if Say Please would do a Giveaway...They quickly agreed!
So! Here you go!
One lucky reader will win Volume 1 and 2 of the Lunchbox Love notes for Kids.
Leave me a comment with a saying that you'd like to see in the Lunchbox Love for Husbands edition. I'll forward all of your ideas on to the company!
It's that's easy. Have fun...and Spread the love!
In the meantime, check out their stuff.
One last thing. I just had to include this.
As I was blogging in my backyard this morning, I noticed some commotion over at my neighbor's house.
Every year, my neighbor Theresa throws a huge end-of-school bash for her children and their friends.
Well, she has certainly outdone herself this year. I looked over the fence and saw this:
a DUNKING booth!!! Theresa is a really fun Mom. She is a big-time coach, and she'll scold your kid just as soon as she'd scold her own. I'd love to see the note cards she packs in her kids' lunches!
Anyway, she's a great Mom...and I'm glad she's my neighbor. I just wanted to say that!
(Also, Theresa, we'll be over for the party later!)
