I love a good hand-written love note.

Fellas, do more of it for the special lady in your life. The world could use more of it, to be honest. Maybe a little less texting, and little more old fashioned lovin’, ya know?

Back in 1994, Johnny Cash wrote what was voted to be the greatest love letter of all time to wife June Carter.

It’s simple, powerful, and vulnerable – exactly what a love letter should have when it comes from the heart. Here’s the famous note from Johnny to June…

“Happy Birthday Princess,

We get old and get use to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted. But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much. Happy Birthday Princess.

– John
