Stash one her in lunch box or on the windshield of her car. If she’s going out of town, stash one in her suitcase. Put a love note on the bathroom mirror. Stick a note in her pants pocket so she finds it when she gets to work. If you’re going to be out of town or you don’t live together, hide one on her pillow with a piece of chocolate.
