    Love Cute little reminders.....

    Advertisements
    [So.... DF. is deployed.. and] when he left i felt the need to scatter a whole bunch of his things around [so that no matter what i was doing i would have a cutesy little reminder of how much i love him and how much he makes me happy.. and so on....]

    this is what i have done:

    [In my car~ i have a pair of his oakley sunglassed around my rearview mirror, as well as his ACU cat eyes... i also have a rose sitting in my vent that he had bought me before leaving.

    Sunday~ I have the very first rose he ever bought me pressed in my bible on the page number of the day we started dating... (718)

    At home~ Of course i make sure to sleep in one of his shirts every night, and i have the same sheets we used back in El Paso... (of course i wash them, and put them back on) and the same Blankets.

    On my person~ Every day no matter what i wear i have a metal memorial bracelet that was his, and a yellow and white support our troops band.. I also never ever take of his dog tags (unless i am taking a shower) and i have his tags from when he was in ROTC in High school as well that i wear.]

    I wanna know what you have to remind you of your lovers.... 1,2,3,... GO!

    DB gave me coins from my undergraduate and graduate schools as a "congratulations" for when he made me "pass" a certain training that he had to do (ha!). I carry them around in my pocket, especially to work, so when things get rough I can just squeeze them really hard and feel that he is there to help me. He isn't deployed yet, but he is at trainings often, so that helps me!

    I think your ideas about putting stuff in every area of your "life" is great-constant reminders are the way to go I think

    Cute idea! and I dont find it too depressing, yes it reminds me that he is gone, but becuase I have them, it helps me feel that much closer to him.
