Letter #5 (50 Love Letters)

Dear M, Whenever I can't fall asleep at night I think about your smile and try to play your giggle on repeat over and over again in my head. Your laugh is the best sound in the entire world and you fill our home with it each and every day as part of the Kopila soundtrack.

Letter #4 (50 Love Letters)

Shining bright star daughter of mine. I love you more than all the stars in the entire universe. I love how bright you shine and I love watching you grow into such an incredible young woman.

It wasn't a parenting moment that I'm proud of and I'll always regret it and yet you still found a way to laugh about it with me and your brothers. Anyways, enough about your hair.

Whenever my friends see your picture they ask, "Who is that handsome boy with the best smile?" I can't wait until the day you realize how ridiculously handsome you are. My favorite thing to do is watch you on the soccer field.
