The Letter

Posted by on Apr 2, 2013 in Blog, Long-Distance, Mail, Special Moments | One Comment

A week or so before Christmas was a busy, busy time for me. I was finishing everything for my next-to-last semester, still hadn’t started planning our wedding which was about two months away, and burning the midnight oil day in and day out.

I usually check the mail before commuting to class and work, and one morning when I dipped my had into the mailbox, I could feel something at my fingertips. Out came this tiny pink envelope, with stickers all over and a familiar name. I sat down on the porch and opened it, to find a simple note on the most sweetest of stationary. “Dear Lauren I Love You.” It was absolutely precious. Attached was a little sticky note of the same print with “I ♥ U” scribbled on it.

I still don’t think she will ever know how much I appreciated it at that time.

    So sweet! I think this is evidence that by doing all of these activities, you’ve helped Littles build the habit of reaching out to you and instilled in her the value of an unexpected surprise.
