Love Letter #31 (50 Love Letters)

Dear S, I love watching you do absolutely everything you put your mind to -- fiercely taking on the goals and dreams you set for yourself. There is nothing you can't do.

I Wish You Love

Happy New Year everyone! I'm in Nepal at home with my children. As many of you know this has been a tough time of year for me. I've struggled with what to say, what to write, and what to share here. I have taken the past few weeks to be with my family and as present with my children as possible. I'm hanging in and riding the ups and downs.
