Mother’s Day is coming right up and I really wanted to get some cute pictures of Blake and I in little white dresses in a flower field. Well, my girl Chantel and I said, let’s do this last night and she friggin’ knocked it out of the park guys. So if you’re in the Treasure Valley area, get all your pictures done by her. Anyways, here’s a peek at them oh and a letter to my sweet girl at the end because well, I’m feelin’ emotional and sappy so you get to listen to it.
Dear Baby Girl,
Lately I have been thinking a lot about you, I mean honestly what’s new? But this time about your future, about your worth and about how much I love you. Sometimes I worry that I work a lot and one day you’re going to resent me for it. So I am going to write it out, I’m going to write you this letter and I hope one day you read it and know just how much I love you. I do work quite a bit, I chase my dreams and goals no matter how big they are and honestly, a lot of days I get discourage because things don’t always work out. But I do all of this because I want you to know how much worth you have, how you can literally do anything you set your mind to. That when things don’t work out, you can throw a pity party, then pick yourself back up the next day and try even harder on it. I want you to see hard work and know that everything I do, I do for you. I do it so that you can see how important giving back is, as a reminder that you can do hard things, and so that you live life at it’s absolute fullest. Choose something you love to do if you can, sometimes it’s not a choice, but make the best of every situation and find joy in it even if it’s hard.
Please know that I try really hard to balance everything, that sometimes it’s not a choice and Mommy has to take a work call, but I love you more than you know. I try to make up for the work calls with extra snuggles and play time but sometimes I still struggle and feel like it’s not enough. I hope you see that I am trying, that I do try. Working and Mommin’ ain’t always the easiest, but I hope the little extra spoiling helps. 😉 I hope you see why I do everything I do.
Sweet girl, always stay strong. Stand up for what you believe in, do hard things, make good choices and don’t be afraid to follow your dreams. You can do anything and everything you want. Don’t you dare let anyone ever tell you otherwise. Be kind to those around you and don’t judge people, everyone has a story and we’re all fighting our own battles that aren’t always seen. Know that you are loved, remember that you can come to your Daddy or I for absolutely anything.
Lastly, please remember how much I love you. Don’t you ever forget it. Remember that every time I step away to work, I do it for you, even if it breaks my heart sometimes because you give me puppy eyes, I do it for you.
