  • Life is crazy busy, and we rarely have enough time for the things - or people - we love.

    For years my husband has been the hardest working person I've ever met. He's worked upwards of 70 to 80 hours/6 days a week for months on end to provide for our family. Truly, this man is a gem.

    Needless to say, time together during those months - sometimes years - has been precious and rare. When we do have time together, we've found fun activities, even though we live in a fairly small town.

    But when the days are long and time is short, we need to show love in other ways -hence, this list.

    Here are my best ideas for ways to woo your spouse or significant other, even when you never see them:

  • 1. Leave a mint on their pillow

  • 2. Write a note and place it on their windshield to find after a long day

  • 3. Print a picture of the two of you when you were first together and tape it on the mirror.

  • 4. Send a text reminding them of a happy memory

  • 5. Cut out a picture of a romantic getaway and suggest making plans

  • 6. Leave a voicemail telling them how much you appreciate them

  • 7. Write a sweet note and leave it in their pocket

  • 8. Pack a snack you know they'll like - nothing says love like food

  • 9. Create a photo collage and slip it into their purse/briefcase

  • 10. Have their car washed and gassed up for no reason

  • 11. Do their chores - mow the grass, clean the kitchen - then take the time they would've spent on that and do something fun.

  • 12. Find a picture that best represents your future goals and pin it up with a love note attached.

  • 13. Make a list of date night suggestions for when you do have time together and keep it visible.

  • 14. Buy a gift and leave it in a surprising spot

  • 15. Leave them a phone message with a compliment

  • 16. Drop by the office with a picnic

  • 17. Buy them a card and let them find it as a surprise

  • 18. Frame a picture of the two of you and display it prominently.

  • 19. Put a gift card to their favorite restaurant in their wallet/purse to use for lunch.

  • 20. Even if time together is difficult or near impossible, find a way to make it happen.

    Truth time: I haven't done all of these yet! But I'm really happy to have a go-to list tucked away so I can treat my hubby like the treasure he is!

    What do you do to woo your spouse/significant other when you don't have time together?
