I've been asked more than a dozen times over the last 18 months about Christmas in LA, what's it like, how can it even feel like Christmas, isn't it weird that it's warm.....to us Pennsylvania natives, yes, it is a bit odd but you can't argue with this
I miss you already, SoCal and we still have seven more months here.
Today, my littles, you are 8,5 and 4 years old. You are in the throws of childhood, the very best days. I remember a little bit about 8. But not very much. 5 and 4 though, I've got nothin'! Your Dad and I do our best to provide you with lots of life experiences and memorable moments. Will you remember all the trips to Disneyland or traveling across the country in a cramped minivan or endless days spent by the sea? I'm not sure. I do know, though, that these experiences will shape who you will become and that is enough for me.
Sailing up and down the coast of Southern California. That's something I want you to remember. Sitting on the very back of a 36 foot sailboat with your feet in the water in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Mama by your side, I want you to remember that too. These moments deserved to be documented. To be captured. So you will always remember.
And I will never forget.
Thank you, Lord, for these opportunities. For these moments. For these magical times with our children.
