    Lacey - SO sweet, Amy and I really hope, too, that your daughter remains confident in who she is. 😉 I love it, too, when my boys express their preferences of my dress and style. 😉 None like it when I pull my hair back, for instance. 🙂ReplyCancel

    Emma Wood - Oh Amy, these images are so lovely, so soft and beautiful and I just know that your sweet girl will cherish these words forever. How sweet that she sees all of the dtails and tells her Mama that she looks pretty. <3ReplyCancel

    katie - Such an amazing letter. Your girls are so lucky to have such an amazing and supportive mom. More little girls need letters like this. There’s nothing more perfect or beautiful than confidence and you, Amy, have no doubt instilled that in your kids.ReplyCancel

    amy grace - i really love the images you chose here, especially to accompany your words. such purity, such beauty, like a memory of a dream, in the snow, just her. she is trying on different feelings, getting used to changing while changing her clothes. it takes a safe and loved child to love that. it’s wonderful that she feels you as a constant, and that you know it, and can appreciate all of her dreaming. i sometimes think the end of my glamor, my perfect on the outside time, came at a time that’s not the best for my girl. but then i realize that them knowing us comfortable, focusing on what we do, who we are, is so much a better deal. love to you friend. beautiful post.ReplyCancel

    Ginger Unzueta - so beautifully written amy. i have one daughter who loves for me to still pick our her clothes at 8 and one who is 3 who wants to do it all her own. funny how it works like that? i do love that like your daughter they both notice when mommy does something different..and they stop and comment. such pure and innocent love. wonderful reminder this month of sharing with them, to always be who they are…no matter what.ReplyCancel

    Rashmi - I love this Amy. And how it makes me smile and share the secret ‘i know, i am a mom to a girl too’ look with the mamas of girls wearing the most outrageously mismatched outfits. You just know they dressed themselves and you just know how special that is and how wonderful the mom is that they let their daughters express their version of ‘matching’. I always think the mismatched (in our eyes) outfits on little kids make my heart smile so much more than the perfectly matched with accessories outfit that you know the mom put together. It is the simple things that make us so happy. You are such a good mom. xoReplyCancel

    Kirsty - I love this soooo much Amy – I smile and nod and think of my own little opinionated fashionista and the adorable outfits she picks and how they make me smile – I can so feel how you feel and love that you instil that confidence in herReplyCancel

    Debbie Wibowo - Totally fell in love with the images. It made giggle reading the part when you don’t have the heart to tell her what don’t match. I wish I could be like little kids again, not afraid of mixing and matching, not afraid of what people might think about one self, and just let your creativity soar. You gave her that opportunity and that’s a wonderful thing!ReplyCancel

    Sara T - I love that you take the time to always tell her how perfect she is in so many ways. We often don’t do this enough. I love that you encourage her to be her all the time and not worry about who is listening, watching or hearing her. Just be free and live life as it should be lived. It is so so important.ReplyCancel
