Last year I was inspired by a 25 Day Advent Challenge that I thought we should give it a try in our home. We’re counting down the days until Christmas in a more meaningful way each year. Try my 25 days of loving my spouse in December with an Advent Wreath!

I found this remarkable little Advent wreath at Target and thought it would be nice to write a little spouse love note for each day in December, leading up to Christmas.
Cory and I each chose a different color notepad to write 25 things we are thankful about each other. 25 positive unique things we want to share with each other.
After folding up each little square, we filled each day with a note. I can’t wait to start tomorrow.
If you need ideas of how to get started, think about the following phrases:
- I love you because….
- I’m thankful for you because….
- I’m so glad you….
- You are so….
Here are also other advent wreath calendar ideas!
You can do this with the whole family, not just your spouse. Each person can take a different color notepad!
Think back to the year you’ve shared with your loved ones and come up with unique messages.
UPDATE: This year we created a gratitude jar and left it out on the counter all year long. It made it easy to throw in a note from time to time so that when December rolls around, 25 love notes were already written!
