Please don’t write on the wall with Crayons anymore. Ok, now that that’s over, let’s get on to more important things. With the arrival of Summer just around the corner, we have been playing outside so much. We had a water balloon fight with Uncle Timothy,
we went to the zoo,
Oh, we’ve just started eating your favorite food again: watermelon. Last year you could have lived off watermelon and not complained one bit. It’s a good thing I love watermelon too.
You have started taking directions really well. “Riley, go throw this in the trash.” And you do, most of the time. You are such a big help to me in other ways too. Folding clothes, unfolding clothes, sweeping, cleaning the toilet, unloading the dishwasher, and on and on.
I can’t say it enough: you are a real sweetie. You make your Daddy and my days so much better with your sweet smile. How could we have imagined the joy you have brought us? It’s quite an honor to raise you. You are perfect in every way.
Love you sweet girl.

Since Riley will be getting a new bed sometime soon, I have decided to redecorate just a little bit. When she was born, we decided to decorate in lime green, hot pink, flower, and butterflies.
2 years later and that stuff gets on my nerves! I’ve decided to change things up just a little: lime green, hot pink, and zebra! That’s about as adventurous as I get: one major change. Anyway, I’m going about the change in steps and have completed the first step.
My sister hand painted cut-out letter spelling Riley’s name. We had them hanging on the wall above her bed.
Aren’t I a talented interior designer? We had these hung on the wall with double sided tape. When I took them down, several of them brought the wall down too. As in paint and spackel (sp?). So I really had no choice in where to hang them up this time.
So now I have butterflies and flowers and bugs hanging on the wall that aren’t going to match. I need to either leave them up there, change them up a little, or find something to hang in their place since they will more than likely tear the wall up too. Good thing we are renters!

I’m on a roll… day 6. Love you Riley. I want you to have pictures of me and you and you and your Daddy. I don’t have many pictures with my parents, so I’m working on that. I have soo many of you by yourself, but I am working myself and your Daddy into as many as possible.

People will often say that their whole lives flashed before their eyes after they experienced a traumatic event. Perhaps it’s a bit morbid, but I think that sounds pretty incredible.
Whether it is relationships, career, or your fashion sense, recording a photo a day for a whole year leaves you with a rich visual history of life.
Why do it?
Taking a photo a day is a big undertaking with big payoffs. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider doing it:
-Imagine being able to look back at any day of your year and recall what you did, who you met, what you learned… (Often we find it hard to remember what we did just yesterday or even last night, let alone a whole year ago!
-Your year-long photo album will be an amazing way to document your travels and accomplishments, your haircuts and relationships. Time moves surprisingly fast.
