100+ Sweet Things to Say to Your Boyfriend

Barbara has spent over forty years writing poems, lyrics, and sayings for cards, and interpreting the meanings and messages in song.

Since I naturally have this crazy ability to put together sayings for texts or cards (or for saying clever things off the top of my head), I thought, "Why not be sweet about it?"

Now, he is the best husband, and father ever.
