    1. I have been well, thanks! How about yourself?

  8. This is perfect! I love sending letters and packages, but I run out of creative ideas of things to put in them. My little brother is leaving in a few months to go on a mission for the LDS church, and I told him I'd send him more packages than anyone. So, thanks for posting all these ideas--now I'll never run short!
