Since Avery was born--well since I was pregnant really--I have been writing her little letters for her to read when she can. A few I have posted on this blog, but most I have kept private...just for her. I am planning on compiling them, along with photos, in a little book to give her on her birthday. I wanted to invite any friends or relatives who feel inclined to write her a little note to feel welcome to do so. If you would like to write something to be included in Avery's birthday book just email it to me. I am going to try to get it all put together in the next two weeks (ish) so I can make sure to have it printed in time for her big day.
What you write is totally up to you. It could be some advice for her life, a wish you have for her, a story or memory you have about an ancestor that has passed on (or is still alive) that you would like her to know more about, your feelings for her, a silly poem, a favorite recipe...whatever.
I myself am resisting the urge to put this off until I can edit everything perfectly, in favor of actually getting it done before she is 47. I figure something is better than nothing, and I'm sure I will just have less time as life moves on.
At any rate, no one is obligated...everyone is invited.

Oh...and PS. I have been a very bad blog friend lately...I know. I have forced myself to stay away from the computer long enough to get some kind of order in my house. But I am reading all about the wonderful, darling, creative, and springy things you are all doing and loving you for it!
