    @ Julianne Christensen. Would you mind sharing a little bit more about these? Like, what did some of the other ones say (since we can only see the first one). And inside of them, were they like greeting cards or love letters or something? I'm sorry if I seem nosey, please only share the info if you're comfortable!

    Kristen Angel. 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!!
