5 Tips: on how to write a '100 things I love about you' list.

Recently I wrote a '100 things I love about you' list to Clark. It was a lot of fun to write and I knew it would be something that he would enjoy reading. Here are some tips for writing one. 

1. Be honest. Don't lie or fabricate this list. It is supposed to be sweet and personal.
2. Don't turn hates into loves.  I have read some list that my friends have done for their boyfriends and they turned things that annoy them about there boyfriends into things they love. Don't do this. If you hate something that they do, don't say you love it.
3. Mix it up. Don't write all the lovey dovey stuff in one section and the practical stuff you love about him in another. Mix it up and it will stay interesting and he will enjoy reading it.
4. Get to the details. This is an important one. No one wants a generic list that can apply to anyone. Pay attentions to the little things he does for you and write those.
5. Have a good time. This should be fun to write not a chore. If it starts to feel like a chore step back from the list and come back in a few days when you have fresh thoughts.

I would recommend handwriting it and not typing it out. It is more personal handwritten. Enjoy writing it and I hope he appreciates the list! 
love, Carlee
