My boyfriend had to go out of state for work for a month and it was going to be our first time away from each other.
He surprised me a few hours before he left by giving me a stack of 30 different colored envelopes tied together with a ribbon. Each envelope contained a letter – one for every day he would be gone.
On special days (like our anniversary) he also included gift certificates for dinner with my friends or massages or something else he knew I’d love. The letters contained jokes, funny stories about his childhood, memories of us together, and questions about our relationship.
Opening a letter was the highlight of each day he was away.
