20 Easy Romantic Ideas

My wife occasionally travels for work. I know she doesn’t look forward to it. She hates being away from me and the kids. So the last time she went on a trip for work I wrote her a note and expressed several things I love about her. It didn’t take long, maybe ten minutes. After I was done I put it in an envelope and slipped it into her bag in a place I knew she would see it. When I talked to her on the phone that night she was gushing. She said she normally felt lonely while traveling, but my note made her feel like I was with her.
