As I mentally prepare for TJ to be gone for a year(have I mentioned that this isn't even FINALIZED or even approved yet??) I have began to think of things I want to do. One thing is to take a vacation with my BFF (I have the best vacations with her) and we are talking about going to Key West. Another thing is considering taking guitar lessons. TJ has a guitar that just needs new strings. I have thought about this before. I want to learn to play and either write or be able to perform a song for TJ.
One main thing I want to do is write TJ love letters while he is gone. Nothing explicit or overly mushy, but little reminders of how I feel about him. When he first deployed I would write super long letters chronicling each day's activities and them mail them at the end of the week. Once we got a phone plan through Spaware and he could call more often that was unecessary. I still wrote, but not as much. This time I expect we will be able to Skype regularly so I was thinking that occasional little letters, no longer than one page, would be a nice pick me up for him. And me. It goes with my word of 2012..Love. Just another way to express love, but in a fun and creative way.
Have you ever written a love letter? Received one?
