Here's the plastic box I brought home.
I opened up the plastic box to find a package wrapped in brown paper.
I opened up the brown paper to find a 7 inch stack of letters.
I examined the top envelope and found familiar handwriting and two familiar names.
This is a stack of letters that my mom wrote to my dad before they were married, from 7/73 - 5/75 (about a week before their wedding). How cool is that?!
I need to figure out a way to share these with Beep and Ben, so feel free to pass along any brilliant suggestions for that. Meanwhile, I know what I'll be reading in the midst of this five week stretch between the 21st anniversary of her death and what would have been her 60th birthday.
