Thanks for being patient. All of you teachers out there know that the week before vacation is always the worst, and I haven't been feeling super well all week so I haven't really had much energy once I got home each day. Thankfully vacation week starts Friday afternoon so I can get caught up (and maybe even ahead) in my blogging!
So finally, I am getting to my Tuesday Love Letters.
To My Valentine (the hubs),
This year we didn't really celebrate Valentine's day, because I had class and you had to study. But you can be my valentine every day of the year if you would like? You did give me a beautiful necklace, which I can't wait to wear on a date night in March after you take the BAR (T-14 days). Thank you for being patient and loving with me all week even though I have been a bit crabby. I love you more than my top 5 favorite foods.
You were my first Valentine. I love that you still get me a card every year and I love that all those years before I had a husband (or a boyfriend) you always made sure to get me flowers on Valentine's day. Thanks for making me always feel special. I know now that I am married I don't need you as much as I did before, but you will always be my dad and I will always be your little girl.
Dear baby sister (aka Stinie),
I really have enjoyed getting to know you better as an adult since D and I moved back to Massachusetts. When we were little we may not have always seen eye-to-eye but now that we are both adults I count you as one of my closest friends. I love talking to you over coffee and hanging out with you and your beau. Sometimes I think you are growing up too fast, but then I remember I am growing up fast too.
Dear big sis,
I know that your babies take up a lot of your attention, but I don't mind because they are pretty darn cute. Thanks for being my first friend and for putting up with your 'little sister' all those years. Remember when you went off to college and I cried and cried? Now we are grown and live in neighboring towns. I love being able to see you more often and watch you be the best mommy around. When D and I have kids, you will be the first one I call for mommy advice.
