"Open when” I bought a BUNCH of cards ranging from funny, love, encouragement, etc.. Then I wrote a personal note in each. Depending on each card, I wrote when he should open it. When you are missing me, when you are frustrated, when you are having a bad day, when you need a pick me up, when you need encouragement, when you are close to coming home, when you are missing home, when you need a smile, when you just want to laugh, on your birthday... - MilitaryAvenue.com

    I found this from another pin: @Julianne Christensen (She took the original photo) "Of course! I bought a BUNCH of cards ranging from funny birthday cards, to love cards, to encouragement cards, etc.. Then I wrote a personal note in each. Depending on each card, I wrote when he should open it. I don't remember everything I did, but some were like this: When you are missing me, when you are frustrated, when you are having a bad day, when you need a pick me up, when you need encouragement, when you are close to coming home, when you are missing home, when you need a smile, when you just want to laugh, on your birthday... that's all I can remember at the moment :) I hope this helps!!" (Going to update photo description with some of this information)

    I saw this somewhere else: Open when you need to know how much I love you Open when you’re mad at me Open when you miss me Open when you’re lonely Open when you’re happy Open when you’ve had a long day Open when you’ve had a bad day Open when you’re sick Open when you’ve left me after visiting Open when you can’t sleep Open when you’re horny Open when you’re imagining our future Open when we can’t communicate with each other Open when you need a reminder of all the things I love about you Open when you need motivation/encouragement. Open when you need to laugh. Open when you’re bored. Open when we’re fighting (and it’s you’re fault) Open when we’re fighting (and it’s my fault) Open when you need a kiss (which I added a candy kiss in the letter haha) Open when you miss America (because he is also deployed and I love photography so, I added a lot of pictures I have taken of the beach and stuff) Open when you need some lovin’ (take a piece of paper and lay it on a flat, hard surface and grab some lipstick; put A LOT of the lipstick on and kiss the paper as it lays flat; now they will have a bunch of kissies from you!)

    Letters, pictures, I printed out sudoku and crosswords for "when you get bored", just thinking of you cards, I puts gift card in one also. They are just envelopes so there is not much room but @MilitaryAvenue.com has great care package ideas on her board if you wanted to send something bigger but the envelopes work great for a quick reminder and they look forward to the specific times they can open each one
