Lunchbox Love Letters

I've always been a note-writer…
passing them in football-shaped fold-ups in school,
hiding them under pillows and in drawers to surprise loved ones, 

Now that our eldest has started school, we've been packing extra punch in her lunchbox—
a love letter a day.
We keep a pen and paper right next to our lunch packing station and take turns leaving messages for our kiddo to read during her afternoon chow sesh. 

I remember the childhood thrill of finding lunchbox messages from my own mama—like a great big hug from far away, and the love in that ink and paper goes a long way in brightening any day.

Our darlin' loves her notes, and she's sure to remind us to leave her a message every day. 
Writing the letters takes mere seconds, but the memories of the love within last a lifetime. 

Keep your paper and pen nearby, and remind your peanuts that you're thinking of them, even when they're away. It'll make them smile. 

A little bit of love goes a long way.
Make your mark on someone's heart.
