During her 6th grade, now 23-year-old Skye Gould’s mom, Stephanie Skylar, would write her letters of motherly advice and affection and put them in her lunchbox, wanting to be close to her child, even though she couldn’t always because of her full-time job. The short letters, containing Skylar’s love and support to everyday problems or simply some words of maternal wisdom, exceeded 100 and were for a long time stored and forgotten by both mother and daughter.

However, in a series titled “Lunchbox Letters”, Gould has found and published her mother’s sweet notes on a website dedicated to her project, after 11 years, sharing their special bond with the world and passing on the guidance and encouragement, she was once given, herself.
