we don't make a huge deal about valentines day around here. a small treat for the boys, a small treat between jason and i. like he brought home a huge reese's peanut butter heart & a vanilla coke for me. he knows me well! but we do make a big deal about love, and that's why i wanted to take a few minutes to write love letters to those i love the most.
elijah, i love you. you made me a mother and i couldn't be more proud of you. you have such a big heart, you care about others and take good care of your little brother. you feel deeply and in turn, have compassion on others. you are serious yet silly and you think about things a long time before you'll jump in. you and i are so much alike in so many ways. you are laid back and happy and wonderful. thank you for being such an amazing son - i love you!
judah, i love you. you couldn't be more different than your brother but i love you for it! you are loud and wild and crazy and love to have fun! you say the funniest things and are always making me laugh! you are sensitive and easily offended but quick to forgive. i love the energy and laughter you've brought to the house. you adore your big brother and are a very loyal friend. you are a perfectionist through and through. i am so proud of you and who are you - i love you.
evangeline meaza, i love you. we don't know you or your personality yet but we already know that we love you to pieces. you are beautiful and sweet and so wanted. you have already brought so much joy and completeness to our family without having done anything. we cannot wait to bring you home, hug you, kiss you and play with you. we are coming for you so so soon. i am so proud to have you as my daughter - i love you.
jason, i love you. you are my rock. you hold me together when i'm falling apart (which seems to be the case a lot these past few years :-). things haven't always been easy, we have been through some tough times together but you always stick by me. i am proud to have you as my husband. thank you for making me laugh, for standing by me, for defending me and for loving me always. i'm so glad we're in this together - i love you.
