I had a couple of requests from people asking about my letters I wrote to Devin. So here is a list of 150 different letter topics for you to write. Keep in mind, these are meant to be read when you two are apart, at a milestone in your relationship, or when you know your written words will be better than your verbal ones.

The majority of my letters were 2-4 pages, but a couple of them could have fit on an index card. I doodled on some of the envelopes, and inside my letters. When I was finished, I bought a small set of plastic drawers (perhaps 18 inches tall and a foot long and a foot wide?) to keep the letters in, and I gave Devin my favorite version of the Bible with his name engraved, which I put in the bottom drawer. I put in pens and highlighters with it, and almost all my letters have a verse or two to look up that pertains to the letter.
