Valentine's Day dinner, surprise parties, extravagant gifts -- these are all special ways to show your loved one how you feel.
However, I have found that these grand gestures don't always last. You start looking for other ways to see that you are loved and special.
That's where the little moments come in.
Put up a Post-It with an I Love You. Coordinate your schedules on a calendar so you know when your time together is. When you buy yourself something, bring something for your loved one as well. Bring back a souvenir from your trip.
None of it is expensive; some of it doesn't cost at all. Yet, these little things tell that you are thinking of each other even when separate. That means the world.
Extravagant gifts are special for a moment, and they can create a memory that will last a lifetime. It's the everyday gestures that make up a lifetime of love though.
