The day for lovers: in a package.

Tuesday, February 12, 2013
Some of us lucky ones get to spend Valentine's Day thousands of miles apart!
I'm one of those verryy "lucky" few.
Sending a package will have to due.
Neither of us have really been into the whole gift giving thing. It just didn't seem to matter.
A heartfelt note and snuggles always suited us best.
Its the little things, right? :)
This makes packages for my sweetheart quite fun to make, and a lott cheaper than stressing about some expensive cologne that he would probably wear a whole two times. I like the smell of his deodorant anyways. I always have. 
Getting crafty is one of my favorite things to do.
I was given a double dosage of the crafting ability because my school smarts lack.
Or maybe I just didn't apply myself, or I got distracted, or both.
Anyhow, I really love putting packages together.
One of my favorite parts is thinking of all the little sayings to attach!
So cheesy, so perfect.
I love imagining his reaction :)
When he comes home I'm going to be so sad I don't have to put packages together anymore. 
Since the sweet boy's birthday falls in the same month as the day of love, I killed two birds with one stone (is that right? I've never been good with sayings but I try anyways) and combined the two!
heerre wee goo!
Ties. A must have for a missionary.
And a box for both occasions :)
I'm a picture person.
Especially because we are thousands of miles apart and seeing each other's faces makes us giddy.

A few of my faves with scriptures on the back

Called to Serve CD by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir!

20 little notes with reasons why I reallllyyy love him for my handsome 20 year old... in a week.

Truth. He is.

That baby was on sale at Deseret for like $5. Sweet!

The sayings on the box flaps :)
Second favorite part!

A job well done.

Oohh the goodies!!

Just some kisses from his one day Mrs. ;)

There we have it! 
Another package closer to seeing him again!
This time next year, I won't be making a package, I will be stressing about actually getting a real gift. 
Eh, we'll probably stick with the heartfelt note thing and most definitely keep the snuggles :)

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
