Wrapped in Love . . .
The Original Love Box book was a fun opportunity for us to look back on our relationship, relive our love story and see how much our love has grown. We started the ‘Love Note’ tradition early in our relationship and when reading the notes we feel loved, even when we’re apart!

“One of my favorite parts of ‘The Love Box’ tradition is the ‘forever keepsake’ we create for each other ~ the actual Love Notes. In this age of texts and emails, each hand-written note is so incredibly precious. And each year’s collection of notes becomes a beautiful snap shot of what was meaningful to our family at that time. Just as the Lord wrote down His love for us, I’m grateful that with ‘The Christmas Love Box™ we too can write down our love for each other…one Love Note at a time.” ~ Kelly Clark, Entrepreneur/Mom
“A note of love is from the very essence of our heart, mind and soul. Really, nothing more will be remembered or cherished in the long run. Notes have transcended time and will be forever more. I love this book and tradition.”

It is a legacy that will be passed down from generation to generation. Thanks Christine for sharing just one of the many gifts that you bring into this world to unite relationships and families!” ~ Kim Smith
