Some More Love From Home

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Because there can never be enough, especially during a deployment.

Today, the baseball/ 4th of July care package I sent Timmy while he was deployed last summer is being featured over at Love From Home! Keep in mind that I'm not too artistic so I didn't get overly creative until his birthday/Halloween care package... :)

I started thinking of care package ideas before he even left. As soon as he left, I wanted to get started on this box. I had it sent out around this time last year. Timmy really missed the U.S. and me and family so I know he loved getting packages - not only because he told me but because of his reactions each time.

My favorite find for this package were these:
 
 Even though T's not really into sweets, I thought they were too cute to pass up!
 
Gosh, I missed him so much those months. The feelings were probably some of the most intense I've felt. Some days I didn't know how I'd get through 7 months without a hand hold, a hug, a kiss from my best friend. 

Whenever I think of deployment these songs come to mind. I had them on repeat:




I almost started crying as I wrote this. Absence sure does make the heart grow fonder, though. That is for sure. 
*Cheers to seeing him in a couple months and to having him permanently with me from next summer on*
Well, what are you waiting for? Head on over to Love From Home and check my care package out!

  1. Those sweethearts are adorable! Wish I'd found those when my hubby was deployed. And when he gets back, you'll look back and wonder how you ever got through a deployment. It's crazy.
