I Love You Because


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Last week we had our cherished friend Clare over for dinner and heard all about a wedding she had recently attended. She told us about how the vicar at the service had offered great relationship advice and suggested that instead of a quick, 'love you!', trying, 'I love you because...' and a reason.

This struck a cord with me. Marriage is not my strong suit. I'm quick to temper and even quicker to point out Matt's flaws. I say loving things and so does he but I think after 9 years of being together and hearing them daily that the gravity of their meaning gets lost. 

I realised that for all the frustrations I (sometimes unjustly) have, I don't do the things I want most to have for myself. I want to feel a bazillion per cent wanted and be appreciated for all my good qualities, whilst having all my bad qualities ignored. The dream right?

I find it so easy to think gorgeous thoughts about people but find it so challenging to say them to them. So here we are, still not really saying it to him, pouring it all into my blog which, sometimes it seems, I write mostly for my own therapy and sanity. I hope you don't mind. 


Dear Matt,

I'm sorry I don't always communicate the really deep stuff with you and I'm sorry I automatically expect you to do that for me. 

I love you BECAUSE you take care of all the little things like taking plates to the dishwasher and fetching me my laptop charger. 

I love you BECAUSE you know what I need when I'm unsettled or worried.

I love you BECAUSE of your endless support to my passions. Remember in 2007 when I spent £300 on beads for my beading craze and you didn't mind? Haha. 

I love you BECAUSE you know how much Sprinkle of Glitter means to me and hold it in high regard. 

I love you BECAUSE in 9 years you have never made me feel less than I am.

I love you BECAUSE you sleep in the pinkest bedroom, just because you know it makes me happy.

I love you BECAUSE of the Father you are to Darcy.

I love you BECAUSE you continually and diligently try your best at work, every day, even when it's exhausting and frustrating.

I love you BECAUSE you put up with my mental ideas. Like the time I wanted to paint the bathroom gold or the time I wanted a loft conversion.

I love you BECAUSE you read all the links I send you to blog posts I've enjoyed.

I love you BECAUSE you let me sleep in the car even though you'd probably like some company.

I love you BECAUSE you don't mind how many makeup products I leave ALL OVER the house.

I love you BECAUSE despite me being a meanie more often than I should, you still love me back.

Love,

Louise.

---------------------------------------------

Whoever it is you're saying, 'I love you' to, I'd encourage you to add a 'because' on there and strengthen your sentiments so much more.

Apologies for being so emosh, this post was probably more for me that you but I feel really good for writing it all down. Next step - saying it!

Toodlepip!

  11. This post is so lovely Louise! I often find it hard to tell my loved ones how much they mean to me, but this post seems to do it perfectly. It is all about the little things that we often take for granted, but miss the most when they are gone. You and Matt are my couple inspiration. Lots of love, Clare

    P.S. I think that your Youtube Culture video couldn't have been more perfect :)

  13. This was a lovely post!! I once did "100 reason why I love you" list to my boyfriend as an anniversary gift and he loved it!! it's important to tell the other person why you love them, i think, because not only does it feel good it will keep your relationship strong!

  28. This is the sweetest thing ... and such a great idea. telling people the best parts about them is the nicest thing, because more often then not it's something they don't see in themselves as their own best bit!! i hope you and matt are the happiest. your family is so lovely and i wish you all the best!
    matt is going to love this post!!

  29. Awww this is gorgeous, I think anyone after being together that long can stop saying I love you sometimes - or just say it in passing, and forget what it really means. Lovely post for a Tuesday morning xxxxx

  30. Well this was lovely and probably just what I needed to see! I saw a post on tumblr the other day which had a list of little things someone might do for you and how sometimes, they may not be specifically saying they love you but these little acts tell you they love you and saying the words 'I love you' isn't always needed to prove your love for someone and I think that's very true.

    Your honesty as to what marriage is really like is something that is refreshing, Louise!

    This is the most beautiful thing I have ever read. Better than any supposed "love quote" bashing around on tumblr, weheart it or Pintrest.

  82. Fantastic post and so true. I find it so much easier to write these kind of things down than to say them out loud. Why? because I fear I'll sound silly or needy or clingy or just plain stupid. I've been made to feel that way in the past and it's a hard thought pattern to break through, but I'm getting there. I have someone now who isn't afraid to say these kinds of things and it encourages me to do the same...but I usually write them down first hehe!

    You're such a lucky girl to have your Matt and he's just as lucky to have you :)

  95. This is such a wonderful idea, and I think can be taken to any person you're saying it to, not just your signifiant other. I tell my family and friends I love them all of the time, but I think from now on I will add a BECAUSE as often as possible, to prove to myself I'm saying it for the right reasons and so they know what I love about them! :) x

  97. Hello from Canada! Louise, thank you so much for posting this terrific blogspot. I too have been married to a wonderful guy for the last 10 years and your post really got me thinking how sometimes us married people don't take time to tell our partners really what makes us love them and appreciate them. I suppose over time life happens, children happen and I guess to some degree we push those small important sentences out of the way. After all marriage is hard work! Thanks again for a great blog post!

  134. Oh Louise! This is such a beautiful post, and I agree with you. So many people say the words "I love you" nowadays, but it seems like they don't fully mean it. I think it is the best idea, and should be applied always in a committed relationship, to add the word "because", followed by a reason that justifies the love. I feel like I can relate to this post, and I thank you for opening up and expressing this.

  135. Louise. That's SO cute. I feel the same sometimes, you know? And I feel guilty about it.
    You're awesome!

  146. I actually cried while I was reading this blog post. I think that this one was really cute :3 You and Matt are so lovely and I can really see how much you love each other. You made me really think a lot of stuff about love.. How ever.. I really loved this blog post. Loads of love to you and your family.

  147. I loved this post and I definitely think people should take your advice and give reasons about why they love people, it shows more care and thought than just a simple "I love you" and it also helps you appreciate the people around you more and what they really mean to you. Beautiful :)

    ReplyDelete
  148. This is such a lovely and heart warming post. :) It made me cry a little to read as it just makes me think about how much I love my boyfriend and how whilst I tell him those three words every now and again, I never go into too much detail about why I love him.

    Inspiring post. <3

  149. This was lovely and something which I think the majority of us think/feel. I for one crave love and expect my partner to read my mind and text me at the exact moment I am feeling a little insecure. Whilst I do ALOT of love giving, I also think this can often lack the depth and meaning that it holds and the idea of saying WHY you love them, whether its the smallest thing like knowing I like one slice of toast with marmite and one piece with butter or offering to pay for things like a course for my future and supporting everything I do, is such a nice idea and something I want to implement in my own relationship from now on.

    Have a fantastic week xx \\ PixiRella

  156. It is so important NOT to take another person for granted. I've been on the giving and on the receiving end of this advice in different relationships. I love the idea of always giving... never expecting... being delighted when someone shows such amazing love in a relationship.

  165. My name is Jennifer martins, from USA I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa in February this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is DR.madurai he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 6years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to usa, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is maduraitemple@yahoo.com :or call +2347067607073
