But every once in a while, I get something in the mail from him!
Usually, it’s a sweet card. But one of my favorite items to receive from him is a postcard from one of our prior vacations. Yes, he buys them and sneaks them home and them sends them to me months or even years later with the sentiment, “Wish we were there!”
There’s something about getting a sweet message via snail-mail that makes me glow inside. I don’t know exactly why it’s so much better than simply sending an email, e-card, text message, or speaking the words. Not that there’s anything wrong with those other ways of expressing his love, but he definitely gets more points for sending something to me through the postal service.
I have a shoebox full of handwritten love letters that he wrote to me the summer after we met. Sweet? Yes. Sappy? Yes. Adorable? I think so. The kind of thing that wins my heart and keeps it forever?
