Ryan’s primary Love Language is Words of Affirmation. Sometimes it gets hard to figure out different ways to be encouraging and tell him how great he is. I want to do things that are unique and fun. Things that are different than just telling him or writing him a note. I have done some creative thinking and even Googled some ideas before!
