The 14 Most Romantic Lines From Famous Love Letters

writing a love letter

Love letters are not old fashioned, and they're not a thing of the past. They're actually really romantic. Every one of us deserves to read a longhand letter every now and then that tells us we are seen and all the ways we are loved. No need to get out the calligraphy pen and scented stationery -- any pen to paper will do -- but a little love letter inspiration will definitely help.


In our ridiculously busy lives, especially for busy parents, our relationships (even the good ones!) often take the back seat to the kids and work and even getting dinner on the table.

And tell the people in our lives how much they mean to us. It'll mean so very much.
