We say ‘I love you’ a lot.

  And by a lot,
I mean
pretty much all the time.i love you 9Every day you will hear it up in our ‘hood.
We say it when we say ‘good morning.’
And we say it at bedtime.i love you 3
We say it when we are filled with happiness.i love you 8
And even when we are annoyed and grumpy.i love you
We say it on our way into the house
and on our way out.i love you 1
There isn’t a limit.
When my Daddy calls me at work,
I talk quick.
And always end with ‘I love you Daddy’i love you 6
I really think they are the best three words in the world.
I hope you say it every day too.
Go ahead. Say it some more. i love you 5
It can’t hurt,
that’s for darn sure.i love you 4
Life is short.i love you 7
Too short.
i love you 2

As far as I am concerned, it is not possible to say I love you too much.

Great post Becky! We say it all the time too. I never want there to be a question if they're loved or not!

Loukia said...

I say it all the time, too! :)

theTsaritsa said...

Lovely! We say it so often around this house, it pretty much rolls off the tongue at the end of every sentence!

Woody said...

You are so correct, you really can't say those three words too much, thanks for reminding us :-)

I say it at the end of every phone conversation with my family. The problem is when I told the used car salesman that called me the other day. I should probably pay more attention and say it with meaning.

Diana...aka...MeMe said...

I love those words too!! I am gonna say them all day tomorrow!! By the way Becky... I think I love you!

Jim said...

Just told my husband I loved him! Becky, you make me crazy!....in a good way.

Kristina P. said...

My husband has never heard his dad say "I love you." To anyone. Fortunately, I think this made my husband realize how important it is to say it, and he does often.

Love Letters To China said...

We speak those three words freely all day long too. It's wonderful to say it and truly mean it.

Brooke said...

we say it like crazy around here too!

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Yep. I agree. 100%!!

Dot O said...

Those three words flow in my home too.

Back when Dan and I were married, the priest gave a homily and although I have forgotten most of what he said, three things stuck with me all these 21 years. The first is "I love you", the second is "I am sorry", and the third is "I forgive you". He said they are the three hardest phrases for most of us to say. I always feel I can work harder at the second two...

Love ya, Becky, for the beautiful person you are, inside and out!

blueviolet said...

I'm a big lover of my kids too. I just squish 'em and love 'em up good! I don't care how old they are. :)

Ruby Red Slippers said...

Oh, how I agree!
I end all phone conversations with my hubby, kids, parents, and sisiter with "I love you".
My four year old started saying, "I love you MORE" everytime someone tells him they love him-I love that!

Mari said...

What a great post! Is there anything that's better to say?
I love you!

Lori said...

We say I love you all the time here in our "hood" too...in my book it can't be said too much...this was a very sweet post...so glad that love over flows at your house too. XX

We say it a lot. And in all different ways. And with lots of smooches and squeezes, too.

We say it ALL THE TIME too, but it can never hurt to say it more!! :) Definitely the best three words.

True, and we should do it in every language we can... Je t'aime, Ich liebe dich, Ti amo, Te quiero, أحبك, 我爱你, 당신을 사랑합니다, ฉันรักเธอ...

We say those 3 little words a lot in our house too :)

Dina @ 4 Lettre Words said...

We do! Both boys could say it by age 2. :)

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

We say it A LOT too!! Everyday multiple times a day. I think it is good for our children to hear it and say it, and see their Mom and Dad say it to each other!

We are big on expressing our feelings in this house.... I was raised that way and I want my children to be raised the same!

AWESOME post and adorable pictures!

Hope you have a great day Becky~

xoxo,

Lisa

I grew up not hearing it that often, I felt loved but hearing it is something special. As a wife and mother and friend I say it every chance I get and mean it. You can never say it too much!

septembermom said...

That last picture just melts my heart! Thank you for reminding us how important it is to say those three words.

Kimberly said...

thanks you for you comments on my blog...you are so kind.
Your blog is amazin!! i will start reading it!:) whenever new friends met my family, they were always amazed at how much we said "i love you" and showed affection. with all that's happened in our little family, my Mom has taken it up a notch with saying "love you with all my heart" i blogged about it quite awhile ago! it's precious. You can never say i love you too much, imo...

Katy said...

Great photos! All these photos seem to scream "I Love you" and you really seemed to capture the moments that count :)

Genny said...

A good thing to say a lot!

Your photos... I always love them. You have a way of making life come alive!

c.e.l.i.n.a said...

that is awesome. We say it a lot. Like all the time as well.

My family isnt super I love you. So I am glad my husband is free with his love you's.

When my younger brother was deployed over seas, he had a code he would say when getting off the phone.

Us: Bye Grantie, I love you
Him: yeah, you're gay.

Every time. Not the most PC code, but it was his way of saying he loved us without getting made fun of too much from his fellow Marines.

Jaymi said...

wow these are such great shots!

Grace said...

I agree with you as they are the best words ever invented.

Gail said...

We say it ALL the time, and every time I speak to my parents on the phone or see them in person too.
You can't say it enough.

That last shot is just precious!

hugs,

Gail
