First off, thank you for sticking with me through the craziness of the past few weeks. I am officially done with the didactic portion of my pharmacy career. The next few weeks are pretty hectic as well with packing, moving, and getting everything ready for rotations. I will do my best to keep y'all informed along the way.
This one is a little bitter sweet, this is my last soldier's box that I will be sending. On the bright side my soldier will be coming home and reunited with his family at the beginning of June. Since it was his last box I wanted to make a "New Mexico Thanks You" box.
This box was divided into three different parts. The first part of the box was filled with goodies from the good 'ol Land of Enchantment. I sent lots of different types of chile, salsa, chili flavored popcorn, peanut patty from Leslie's candy company, candied pecans from Las Cruces, and pistachios. Along with all the goodies I added a few postcards with NM facts on the back of them.
The second part of the box was a Thank You portion. I must admit this portion of my box I got inspiration from good 'ol Pinterest. I actually had the picture saved on my phone since January and was excited that I finally was able to use it. The original version had the candy bars taped to a poster board, but since I am mailing this overseas I just made a smaller copy and added the candy bars in the box.
I am sad to see this project come to an end, but I have thoroughly enjoyed it and plan on adopting many more soldiers in the future. If y'all are interested in finding out more about adopting a soldier, I encourage you to click here.
