A simple, seemingly meaningless phrase that means more a piece of chocolate to me.
Okay, maybe not quite THAT far, but it means a whole lot to me after reading this story together and having 2 months of marriage to live it out. After reading that story, we both threw ourselves into the creativity of hidden codes with admirable gusto. Both of us, as later confessed, were wondering if the new trend would last very long. Because this hits at a particular love language of mine, I knew that I would probably continue to add the code to the end of little notes or to the mirror via dry-erase markers after a hard week—but I did not have a large expectation for it continuing from the side of my husband as much.
Apparently, I have underestimated the powers of Superman! Below I have attached some of the SHMILY notes (that I remembered to take a photo of) that I have found in various places over the past two months.
A good SHMILY makes even the sock drawer exciting :)
Dry-erase markers have become an important aspect of our marriage...
I found this one this morning during my shower—completely made my day
See How Much He Loves Me? :)
It's great! A way to show that you were not only thinking of the other, but that you took the time to find a good hiding place for the code to sit until discovery. (and the nice thing about it being "in code" means that I can hid it all over his classroom in little ways without worrying about his hormonal students finding one—because if they do, it doesn't really matter, does it? :) )
