dear lauren, barrett, haven & nova,
it’s always nice when you discover that the cool kids are also really really nice, friendly, real, funny & great company ;)
and i realize that just like a few rare things on the planet, you’ve gotten even better with age.
at the session i wanted to tell the girls about your wedding – like the fenceline of hundreds of photos that fluttered in the breeze on your wedding day. and how even 8 years later i smile when i think about the escort cards that each had a funny pin-on button picked especially for that guest.
you mashup fun + meaning in the very best way.
the people fortunate enough to know you know exactly how much you care about them – and if the rest of the world knew how well you loved, they’d be lining up.
you come from a heritage of tight immediate families – and i see you building the same. you go beyond “good communication” and find communion together.
haven, i’m struck by how serene and soulful you are….and you’re not even 4! i feel like i’m talking to an intuitive wise woman with you!
and nova, you delight in a way all your own…scattering joy wherever you step. the cheeks and pigtails are totally working!!
girls, you’ve got it GOOD in the parent department. truly. #TreatEmRight
and i hope on your next birthday for something in addition to a spectacularly fun day – your dad’s sincerity & and your mom’s depth.
keep loving life – it’s going to be spectacular, -m-
These love letters are so sweet!! xo
Melanie, you have such a gift with words. I love how you describe this family. I feel like I know them :)
