One of my absolute favorite things about deployment is the care packages! I love sending him packages, it's so much fun to decorate them, and find different themes to base them on. For Easter I went all our on his package, well technically it wasn't just HIS package. I bought over 100 eggs and filled them with different candies, then i sat and wrote out little notes for each one. The notes said things like "Thank you for your service" and "God Bless our Navy". It took quite a while, but it was so worth it! Amazingly enough, the package actually arrived on Easter Sunday, and they got to pass around all the eggs and enjoy the candy. My hubby said tons of them said thank you and it was nice to even have a little something on the holiday. I was super excited, but I'm a dork like that!
Along with all the eggs, I managed to squeeze in a few things just for my love, like energy drinks a corny ping pong game, some of his favorite snacks, and of course confetti eggs!
Lately I have been writing him a letter every night before I go to sleep, I just always like to make sure he has something going his way even when I don't have time to do a full blown care package. What have been some of your favorite packages you've sent out?
