  1. I made a “month of Monday meals” miss you a bunch so let’s do lunch! Menu with doubles of each so you can have the same lunch on whatever designated day as your LDR lover.

  2. I just sent my boyfriend a month of gifts. He gets to open a new one each day. Some are thoughtful gifts, some are challenges and some just help him learn more about me and what I care about. The fun thing is that he has decided that we should do the unboxing via video chat which allows me to see his face as he opens these things.
