Clerkship Letter Bundle

Hi all you strong med wives! Hope school or rotations are underway for all of you and you're finding time to spend with your sweeties! My husband has his first of four clerkships this month, he is actually heading to his second tomorrow, which means we are not together right now. As hard it it seems, it hasn't been bad at all. He is clocking 18-20 hour days, and barely having time to sleep with journal club, presentations, and too many surgeries to count. I'm here to share with you an idea for when your sweetie goes off on any/all clerkships. 

1. Find cute stationary
2. Decide what would be best for your sweetie & title each letter. Remember there will be good days & bad days. Here are some examples below:
{for when you rock a surgery, for when you're missing me, for when you need a hug/snuggle, for (insert holiday here), for your long drive, for when you need to laugh} 
3. Write thoughtful & positive words. Use your own language and semantics so it feels personal.
4. Add treats, photos, cd's, or anything you believe will be of use.
5. Bundle them all up and give them before they leave to travel. 

It's as simple as that. It was every sweeter when I gave them to him the night before his first clerkship in Washington D.C. I would be leaving the next day and it was just a quiet moment that we could share together.
On a happier note, I am flying to Denver (his second rotation location) in a week and couldn't be more excited to get some time in with my man! 

As always, feel free to check out, read, or follow our blog. We love visitors!
