What I Love About You — Kate Marshall & Dave Marshall


What people love about What I Love About You:

 “I purchased this book as a gift for my husband. It helped me express romantic sentiments and memories, which was extremely helpful as I am not a mushy gushy kind of girl. It made me think about my love and our relationship in ways I hadn’t in a while. His face as he was reading it was well worth every minute spent writing the answers.”

 “This book expressed everything I’ve been feeling for the past 7 years with my significant other, and I very, very highly recommend it. Of all the sentimental gifts I’ve given, this one got the biggest (positive) reaction, and is my absolute favorite.”

 “It means a lot when someone takes the time to write things down since many handwritten activities have been replaced by electronic emails, text messages, etc. This is a wonderful gift to give someone who holds a special place in your heart.”

 “I got this for my boyfriend of 4 years, and to say the least he is not the most sentimental guy. I got this gift to go along with a bigger gift, however he barely even cared about the bigger one when he got his hands on this. I was very surprised when he said it was his favorite present he ever received. “

“My wife is deployed and I am constantly looking for cool things to send her. This book hit the spot! This book helped ME by making me dig deep and put my thoughts into words for her. It helped HER because…well, it’s better than a dozen roses every week for the rest of her life.” 

“This book is amazing because sometimes you don’t know how to express your love for your partner and this book makes it so easy. It is a great gift for any day of the year.”

 “As a lack-luster communicator on the topic of emotions this book allowed me to loosen my proverbial lips and own every word. Give yourself plenty of time to pen your thoughts and dig up those memories. Guaranteed to be a gift that lasts.“

What I Love About You offers a fresh way to say "I love you." 

This fill-in-the-blank book prompts you to say what is in your heart, but may not always be at the tip of your tongue.

Tell the most important person in your life just how much they mean to you by completing the unique, evocative checklists, short answers, and phrases in this attractive gift book.

    • An Attitude of Gratitude By Kate Marshall

      When was the last time you told your loved one how much they mean to you? I frequently feel gratitude, but don’t express it often or fully enough. Surely my husband already knows I love him, right? Complaining is easy and sometimes feels more urgent, but ultimately there is nothing more important than saying “I love you,” and nothing more rewarding. I’m determined to do a better job of giving David heartfelt affirmations such as “I love how playful you are with the kids. Thank you for reminding me how fun it is to be silly.” He deserves it.

      For me, writing what is in my heart is easier than saying it out loud, so I started penning a little journal for David. Once I got going, it felt good. Letting go of everyday grievances freed me to remind him of the many ways he makes my world better, from little things like foot rubs and delicious grilled veggies, to big things like teaching me how to take risks. I thanked him for the many experiences and people that knowing him have blessed me with.

      Writing this journal made me feel more in love, more connected and more grateful to my husband. It turned out to be quite easy to sing his praises. Now I’m working on maintaining an attitude of gratitude, but I’m also glad David has a written keepsake of how much richer he has made my life.

      Receiving and Giving By David Marshall

      On our 20th anniversary Kate gave me a version of this book she had filled out for me. Wow! It really knocked me over. We’d collaborated on books before, but this one affected me differently. Here was a whole book applauding my greatness—from the love of my life. It felt fantastic. I flipped through quickly to make sure there wasn’t a What Bugs Me About You section. There wasn’t.

      As I settled down in my armchair to read each page, a warm glow came over me—directed toward Kate. After reading it, a little misty-eyed, I hugged Kate tight and told her how much I loved her. I even learned some things she appreciates about me that I never knew before, such as my faithful kisses goodnight and my ambitious kitchen experiments.

      This is the best gift I have ever received from my wife, not counting our two wonderful children. For Kate’s birthday, I knew what her present would be. As I started to fill out the book, describing all the ways I admire her, I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude that she had come into my life.

      After two decades of marriage, it warmed me to remember what attracted us to each other in the first place—and continue to bind us together each day. When I saw her eyes light up as she removed the wrapping, I knew I had chosen the perfect present. It felt wonderful to prepare and give this gift of love to my wife. We decided to share our love journal experience by creating a fill-in version to help other couples organize their thoughts of praise and love as well.

      We offer you What I Love About You to sing the praises of someone you love. We hope you and your loved ones feel as rewarded by it as we did.
