The Magic of Open When You Miss Me Letters
Whether you’re long-distance, or you just love the thought of your partner smiling when opening a heartfelt letter, you are sure to make your loved one feel special. This is a gift they will remember and keep forever.
An open when you miss me letter can also be sent to your Mum, Dad or bestie if you’re living apart from them. I’ve found letters hidden in my suitcase from my parents when they lived in Australia, and I lived in England. It’s so lovely to read (although I was also bawling my eyes out). It’s even more magical when you find these letters years later and can re-read them. It brings all the memories of the past rushing back as if it were yesterday.
Okay, so I think we agree that letters are magical 😁 let’s look at some examples below.
