Love Notes

Forgive the sap. In honor of Valentines Day, I just felt like counting my blessings. 🙂

5 Random things I love about…


  • He is a peacekeeper and tries to help everybody get along.
  • He makes darling art.
  • He’s tough and wild and all boy, but he’s also a sweetheart and his mama’s boy.
  • He’s a total goofball.
  • He has a Brittish accent when he’s trying to be polite.


  • She uses reams of paper making little love notes and drawings for her family members, folds them creatively and tosses them at us at all times.  You’ll be having a conversation when all of the sudden she will fly into the room and a small white thing will come sailing towards your lap.
  • She has been making up songs since she was 6, pretty much daily.  They’re good.
  • She finds something to love in everybody and is a true friend to the friendless.
  • She has rocking fashion sense.
  • She is honest to a fault, and comes to me and confesses the smallest infraction.


  • She is one of the most knowledgeable people I know, at 10 years old, largely of her own doing.
  • She still loves to play and be a child.
  • She is a big help to us around the house, with everything from making lunch to doing laundry to occupying Alex when he’s making us crazy.
  • She makes fantastic art.
  • She’s truly a treat to spend time with.


  • He has an adorable little belly laugh.
  • He has an adorable little belly.
  • He’s absolutely fearless.
  • He let me do this baby thing all over again when I thought those days were over.
  • He makes us smile so much, and laugh and laugh.


  • He writes me love songs.  Good ones.
  • He is always learning new things and teaching me new things.
  • He’s a loving, fun, silly, sympathetic, fabulous father.
  • He is always trying to make me happy, even when I don’t deserve it.
  • After 15 years, I keep falling more in love with him.

My life is so much better for having these 5 incredible people in it.

End sap.  Thank you for your patience.  😉
