Jared's birthday was July 2nd, but I realized I never wrote a post about the package I sent! So here it is :) I sent it from here in Italy, with only items that I brought over from America. When I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, all he could say was "American snack food" haha so this is what he got :) Some of his favorites.
Cheez-Its (his fave)
Some Italian candy
A birthday card with 5 euros inside telling him to go buy some birthday gelato :)
a Memory card with a birthday message from me.
And of course, a long letter.
Also, I made a shirt that says, "This is My P-day Shirt" that I thought was pretty funny. It also has a little message on the inside of the shirt. I used fabric paint and painted a heart right where his heart would be when he wears it. On the inside of the heart I painted "Your Desiree" because he has my heart :)
And last but not least, this tie that I made before I left :)
I know he's gonna love it if the Italian mail system ever decides to let the package show up at the mission home. Keepin' my fingers crossed.
I celebrated his birthday even though we couldn't physically be together :)
Only one more birthday away from each other until we'll be together for all of our many birthdays to come :)
