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.
