love notes

NUVO has intense feelings of love for our readers, so we asked them to send in love notes for Valentine's Day. And you answered the call. From puppy love and mom love, to an ode to Yats' cheesy bread and Indy weather, here are the notes you and your fellow Hoosiers submitted. 

Tony P.

What matters most is how well you walk through the fire. You have walked tall beside me in the worst of times. I will never forget it. I love you so much and I am amazed every single day by you. That’s not always a good thing, but you are cute enough to overlook it. I will love you and be strong for you, for us. You have inspired me to be so much more than I thought I could be. I’m never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down (except once in awhile)

— Sarah F. P. 


What an amazing first year we have had. It has been an unforgettable ride. Can’t wait to share many more with you and see what the future holds for us. I love you!

— Natalie

Nollie (my dog)

Keep on waggin’ pup.

— A proud owner


Love you to the moon and back!

— Mom

Jessica H. AKA Mommy/Stepmonster

To a most loving, nurturing and caring partner in crime. Often I’m left speechless as I creepily gaze in your direction. Wondering how I got so lucky and how your still in the bed as I wake up each morning. Your love to all in our exceptionally loud and crazy family gives me all I need each day to set out daily to attempt mimicking the great example that you are. Often I’m falling short and yet I know I’m a better husband and father because the love and patience you have for me fuels my desire to be the best man I can be in any capacity always. I can’t fully put into words how much I love you. Just know I do. Happy VD!

— Ron C. AKA the husband you snagged on Match

Amy Lou Who

Thanks for the best 30+ years anyone could ask for! Love you.

— Ed

Because of you, I’m your husband. And a Dad.”

Love you forever!

Charles Huckleberry

Words can’t express how I feel for you. You are my world; my heart; my soul. Thank you for loving me on the good days and bad. I hope this never ends. I want to share my life with you until my very last breath... but I’m still an a-hole so I may be complaining. Ahahahaha. Real life; I want this shit forever. Don’t f that up. You’ll never find someone that loves you as much as I do. I know I’ll never find someone as close to my heart as you. Happy V-Day baby! Your wife and pain in the a. 

— Shawna F.  


You are my best friend first and always. Second but most certainly not any less, you are my husband, mate, partner on this roller coaster called life. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Love you more every day. Always. 

— Your Square 


Ever since I saw you with that glass of red wine I knew something was there. It took me a few asks but you finally relented and we dated. Didn’t take me long to realize there was more than something. Thanks for sharing the last 18 years with me. 

I love you.

— Simon 

Carla my beautiful wife

I love you to moon and back!!

— Your wife Angie!!


You are an amazing VJD and my favorite jerk-face!

Indy’s weather

Indy’s weather is ever changing; unpredictable extreme heat, tornadoes, rain, snow, sleet or hail. Just wait a few minutes, it’ll get better, well maybe. That’s why I love this city.

— Angela


Loving you whether... times are good or bad, happy or sad. Valentine - I love you even more after all these years!

— K.K.

You have made my life complete! Thanks for sharing your talent with me; I am now empowered to explore my own greatness! You are my “Daddy Bear,” and I love you for it. You have made life with Punky complete, as well.

— Margo

Tommy on the southeast side 

You made me hopeful and maybe that was my mistake. Either way, I’m glad we met (even though we never formally met). I think you have a beautiful soul and you’re probably lucky I wasn’t around long enough to taint you, lol, but seriously. 

— B 

Alisha Taylor

You are the absolute best thing that has happened to me and these past seven months have been amazing. I love you with all of my heart.

— Your Better Half

Calas M Burse

To my one and only true LOVE ... The moment we met I knew you were meant for me. The first kiss was so innocent, I felt like a school girl all over again. Butterflies fill my stomach still to this day. You have me sitting on top of the world. Sweetheart, I promise to love you a lifetime, the day past 4-ever.

— Mrs. Burse

Hey Baby! Thank you for you. You are still the love of my life and I am so very exciting to see what the future holds for us.

— Hot Mama Michelle 


“You need a drink or something?” was one of the first questions you ever asked me. That was also the first time you made me laugh. There have been so many other first experiences I have shared with you, I hope that never ends.

— Lesley 

Victor M.

Always remember, I Love You

— Mom

My Sweetie

We’ve been through so much together and, even though we yell at each other about quarter round (which you really did install wrong!), I still pick you as my number one person to always be around. I love you always and forever! 

— Stacy


Out on a rock, I saw you smile at me, your eyes were blue, they were true. I knew all along that someday, it would be you and me.

Daniel H.

It seems life was determined to hit me hard these past two months, but through thick and thin you were there with foot rubs, chocolate bars, kind words, and many hugs and kisses. I want to thank you so much for everything you have given me in the past year and a half. I still can’t believe that I found such an amazing man on my first try! I love you to the stars and beyond!

— Kayla H.

Forever yours.

— Your sweet love 

Coach Potter

From the moment I set eyes on you

I was blind-sided. My guard was down.

I did not run for safety. I did not want a quick out.

There were no red flags.

Your swagger and your strong side were a definite draw.

You were successful in reaching my weak side.

I could not resist your pass attempt.

I am so happy that you were a fair catch!

I fumbled a bit, when you took a knee.

I was hooked and we got hitched.

25 years later, we are still bliztfull!

— Mrs. Potter


Here is something very sappy,

I love your kisses,

They make me happy 

— Jodi Jo 


Roses are gray, violets are gray-blue, I will always share my bone with you.

From the time I met you (10 minutes late), I have been in awe of you! Here’s to many more years. =)

I love you!

— Nathan


Travel buddy - let’s plan a trip. I love exploring the country/world with you.

— Your girl


To the love within that goes without saying anything... but I’ll say it anyway, I love you! 

— Beth


You are the best pup pup I could ever have. You brighten every day and I love you lots (even if you do like to eat Spam). Thanks for having sense and never eating your own poop like your friends, xoxo. 

— Dad 


I believe we were meant to go over the wall together. 

— John 

James E Melis 

(aka ‘Handsome’) 

When you kiss me like that, the way you do,

It feels like my head is falling into a hundred pillows,

Falling back,

And I am in outer space.

That’s what you do to me.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you, love 

— April Charisse (aka ‘Boofay’)


I’m glad it was your closet I fainted in. You’re pretty ok. 

— Lumpy Space Princess
