Care packages are staples during deployments and they are what gets our men and women through the lonely times of being overseas. Yet sending the same “ole” care package can be super boring after a while.
This is more so the case when you have exciting news to share and your loved one can’t be home. So what’s a girl to do?
Send a special occasion care package!

Hmmm, I never thought of that! FANTASTIC idea! I’m definitely sharing this one, thanks!
You are so welcome and thank you for letting me use it :)
This is such an awesome idea! But, I’m so weak I wouldn’t be able to keep from mentioning the special news if I spoke to my soldier before the package got to him. I can’t hold water. Lol. And, those packages can take forever. I LOVE this idea though. Thank you for sharing it.
