Day 4, Countdown to February 14, Someone else's words, or your own

Write in your own handwriting on note-size printout.....
...or print out a full page border and write with formal italic. 

You can write a love letter using your own words, in your own handwriting--or take it up a notch.   You may want someone else's words to capture the feelings you have your heart.  But rather than buy a greeting card with sentimental sentiments from a nameless wordsmith in a cubicle, you can search scripture, poetry, song lyrics, or prose for the very best words to use in your love letter.

Choose a quotation that sums up love for the two of you.  For instance, shown here at right is “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine" from Song of Solomon 6:3.  Copy it in your own handwriting or, if you're ambitious, in calligraphy.*  To give it extra appeal, you can use decorative paper.   And go to my website to print out this decorative border for free. 

*Beginning calligraphers can start with my Learn Calligraphy, from Broadway/Random House,  or the now out of print workbook, Calligraphy Made Easy.
