I found these cute cards at Target and started writing these notes with the plans I had for the days he was gone and just letting him know how much I love him. On the envelope, I wrote which day to open it and warned him not to open a letter early, because I know he would want to and it's not any fun that way!
Even though Spencer will usually just travel inside the United States in the future, I think I will keep something similar like this up. I think he appreciated the gesture and I loved expressing my feelings and hopes and dreams with him on paper. Even if you aren't into that lovey dovey stuff, it's a nice change to give a card to someone telling them how much you care away from a holiday or birthday.
Have a great day!
