Dear Little Browne Dude,
So, you aren’t here yet, in fact we have 76 days to go until your mom and I meet you for the first time (if doctor’s due date is accurate) but I wanted to let you know that today is our wedding anniversary…4 years ago today we got married on the beach in Pismo Beach, CA. It was an absolutely amazing week, and day, full of family and friends, wine and food, laughter and love…your mom and I are massively lucky to have the people we have in our lives and we were even luckier to have found each other amongst all the chaos in the world.
If I could give you any advice it would be to BE in every moment, you’ll find out one day that this amazing life goes by so quickly so it’s very important to understand this early on. You’re going to have times in your life where you will have a broken heart, you’ll lose someone you love, you’ll be sick, or it seems like everything is crashing down around you…we all have these times but I am here to tell you that these times shall pass and YOU will have a choice to make in those moments; either you will choose to own those moments no matter how difficult they seem to be or you will let those moments own you.
This is one thing your mom and I have worked so hard to achieve, enjoy our moments even when it seems like all the world is stacked against us. The ability to shine light in this world when it’s at its darkest is an amazing gift, stay positive and carve out your own path. This life goes by in the blink of an eye so live it as deeply and fully as you possibly can, the world needs that from you. Your mom and I have been working toward this kind of freedom and it has been the most fun and rewarding part of my 35 years so far…it’s not easy though, that work never stops, but it is so worth the effort!!
So on this anniversary, as we prepare for your arrival I am also thinking a lot about where your mom and I started and the roller coaster ride it has been so far. We look forward to meeting you and having you join the roller coaster with us…there will be many bumps along the way but trust me, even the bumps are worth this indescribable adventure. You will be surrounded by some amazing family and friends as well, so many are looking forward to meeting you, not just mom and I. I can’t wait to see your eyes light up at all the little miracles life will throw your way and I hope it reminds me of all those little moments and just how incredible they are. See you soon Little Browne Dude!!
Buckle up and let the adventure begin!!
