Letters to Tuck: Volume 6

{Print by Oh My Deer Handmades

Dear Tuck,

The above color is my favorite.  If my soul had a color, that'd be it.  And those words, well that's pretty much all I can muster without becoming a crying fool when I think about how much I love you.  
I've been thinking about what your favorites are going to be.   There's no telling.  Thinking about what your favorites will be got me thinking about my own and how badly I'll want to share them with you.  Sharing all of the blessings of life with you is almost too much.  So here's my little bucket list for us, as a fam.  
take you to the amalfi coast and swim in blue grottos
go deep sea fishing and show you the color of water at 10000 feet
watch you fishing with your dad in our backyard
see you throwing a baseball with your dad
introduce you to the deliciousness of avocado 
blueberry pickin turned into blueberry pie makin
lightning bugs on a mississippi summer night 
the ole miss grove on a fall saturday
your grandmothers kind eyes
riding horses through fields and streams
hiking blue ridge mountains
switzerland in the summer 
your dads silly side
boat rides to see the sunset
gelato specifically stracciatella and movenpick
watch when you understand what Jesus did for us
a good shrimp po-boy
when you learn how to ride a bike
What's incredible to me is the fact that this is just the beginning of a list that could go on for days.
Life is filled with so much beauty.  I hope you always try to look for that in any situation.  
I can't wait to get started on this list with you.

  16. These all sound like amazing things, you've got me itchin' for an adventure. I love these letters and that you have so many plans for your sweet boy. That lucky child is going to have such a wonderful life with you two as his parents.

  17. These posts make my heart so happy. You're the sweetest and baby boy is so beyond blessed!

  18. I love these letters you've written, but this one is definitely my favorite. Your son is a lucky little fellow to have such a sweet and loving Momma! I actually had an MC just a couple of months ago - it was my very first pregnancy - and while I have moved on in my daily life, it remains a mental struggle at times. Reading this love letter to Tuck made me slightly sad, but also incredibly hopeful. I hope to one day soon write similar letters to my little one :) Thanks so much for sharing Sarah!

  19. Love, love inspiring and sweet. And I absolutely love that color as well!


I love hearing from you (:
