“a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014”
liam // You decided to make my favorite dark chocolate cake for my birthday this weekend and insisted that I shouldn’t help. Although I did help pour the batter, you all did the rest, only forgetting the baking soda in process–a minor detail. (Wink.) You also gifted me with a poem you wrote. I always enjoying the playful ways you use words. Thank you, sweet boy.
burke // Your gift will always be your deep bear hugs and your quiet heart. I so appreciate these things in you–and also your love for Mad Libs and a good joke.
blythe // You made a tiny bracelet and very artistic birthday card with plenty of swirling letters and sweet, poetic words beginning with “you are like” for me on my birthday this week. I love seeing your careful tenderness in all you create–certainly, a gift to my own soul. I hope this gift always grows and strengthens within you.
olive // Making magic from sand–just your style. You’re making me coffee right now, and I have no idea what it will taste like, but I appreciate that under all of your craziness and intense emotion is a very generous heart. I love you, sweet girl.
