Saying I Love You Without actually saying it or having it cost MONEY

I've been trying to come up with some blog post topics to write about as it seems that my blog has taken to just being giveaways, and that is not the reason that I started it.  Oh, don't get me wrong, I love giving things away.  Heck, I love entering sweepstakes and get just as excited being able to give prizes away to our readers.

But I also want to expand a bit on my blog.  Get it up to date.  Might even change the name a bit as my little red-head is growing up, don't get me wrong, she still loves lollipops and she still loves ladybugs, but her interests have exploded.

So, sitting here thinking, how do I say "I Love You" without actually saying the words? How can you say "I Love You" without it costing anything?   My kiddo tells me all the time.  She actually just yelled out of the bedroom, "Mommy I Love You,"  and she does that frequently.  

Here are some of my (our) ways:

1.  Each and every morning I get up and pack my husband's lunch for him to take to work.  Growing up, I watched my Mom pack my Dad's lunchbox each and every day, and I guess it grew on me.

2.  Will text my hubby, just because. 

3.  When he gets home from work, I will ask him how his day has gone? Pretty easy to tell when its been a bad day, and actually listen to him.

4.  I put little cute notes in his lunch box, though its been a while, need to get on that again. 

5.  Texting funny pictures of the kiddo to him.

6.  Kiddo and I will go out and visit him in the field when I know he is going to be working late and won't get to see her before she goes to bed.

7.  Get up first thing and make the coffee (he does this for me as well).

8.  Just spend time together, doing nothing.

9.  Cook his favorite meal.

10. After the kiddo is in bed, pour a glass or two of wine and snuggle.

11.  We love to sit out side, quietly, and just look up at the stars.  This is "our time."

What are some of your ways to say I Love You to your spouse, significant other, friends, parents, etc?
