For us it's always been a "little Smokey" as my husband says, makes us want to slow dance all night long. We were lucky enough to score some last-minute tickets to a Smokey Robinson show last fall, and big bonus....backstage passes which included the "Smokey hug" and a few weeks later, a photo of the three of us which now resides in a place of honour. I think my husband moved our wedding pic to make room for it! For those of you who saw the American Idol Smokey Robinson & Joss Stone duet last Thursday singing Smokey's new song "You're the One for Me", didn't you just get the chills? It was one of those magic music moments when you know a new song is just going to go right through the roof .The single song can be playlist downloaded at {click here} just in case you're in the mood for a "you're the one" slow dance sometime soon.

I am married to a man of few words.........but it never meant I didn't know what he was thinking. They are left on my dressing table, in the kitchen, on my desk, or near my sink, little love notes written on all manner of paper....sticki-notes usually, sometimes paper towels! But when we are old and gray, we can go through these little notes and track back through the years together....I've kept every one of them for the past 34 years . Some days when I get frustrated with his quiet ways I'll open the box, think about those notes and how they say so much, so often, and then I just smile ear-to-ear. It's worked for us and I can't help think most couples would benefit from some love note magic so this led to.........

Lovenotes................a little trio of romantic gifts to encourage any couple to keep a love note history at any time during their relationship. The Parlez d amour (Speak to me of Love) scented notebook is perfect, it's perfumed pages are easily removed for love notes back and forth. A wonderful gift for an engagement, wedding, anniversary, the new mom (listen up men), or your partner. The fragrance is so heavenly, I added the matching test tube set of Bath Oil/Bath Salts and a heart-shaped soap to keep the lovely groove going. Boxed, wrapped and shipped at 79.00 Can. Imported from France, of course.

Prepping a Lovenotes gift, a length of ribbon to tie up the love bundle and little product card to nudge the shy romanticist.
