Love letters

Over the next couple of weeks, Randall and I will be asking our family members to write a letter to Sydney. It can be whatever each person wants to write - deep & meaningful life advice, fun stories about themselves and our family, words of wisdom...whatever. The end result will be a bound book of "love letters" from all of Sydney's relatives that we hope will serve as a compass to guide her through life. Randall and I will each write one as well, which will be at the beginning of the book. I think mine will focus on my wishes for her life...happiness I hope she finds and dreams I hope she chases. This idea came to me recently, and I think this exercise could be quite fun for our relatives, and will certainly be meaningful to Sydney for many, many years.


  1. what a sweet idea and something she will treasure her whole life =)
