I’ve been writing love letters to my kids for a while now. It began with a poem I wrote to my twin girls when they turned 1 year old. There is something very profound about writing letters to one’s children, even though it seems like such a simple activity. I know my children will cherish what I’ve written to them, but I’ve also gained so much by writing to them. Several months ago I embarked upon a project called “Letters to Our Daughters” with several other wonderful mothers and photographers. The response to that project has been very heartwarming and I’ve been so grateful to hear from kind people who have reached out to let me know how the letters have affected them in any small or big way.
Recently, several friends asked me to join them in a similar project called “Letters to Our Sons.” I’m honored to join them and share in the joy of letter writing with an even bigger group of friends. Our blogs are linked together in a circle, so after visiting one blog you can easily continue the circle by clicking on a link to the next blog, and so on. Next in our chain of letters and images is the amazing April Nienhuis. She is one of the most dedicated and loving mothers I know, and I am so honored to call her my friend.
