Letters to My Son - September

Friday, September 19, 2014

I'm taking part in a blog circle with some other fabulous women, where each month I will include a letter to my boy along with a few pictures that capture the emotion and love I feel for him.  I hope that you will enjoy this feature as much I have enjoyed the process, and will also take the leap to the next blog in the circle each month.

Dear Sweet Boy,

Last week mommy went to Salt Lake City for a photography conference, but it was really so much more than that.  While there a lot of the speakers talked about creativity.  One thing that I hope to share with you is that you don't need permission to create.  I want art and creativity to be something you openly explore and develop a strong curiosity for.

We have been leaving the sidewalk chalk in easy reach, and I love that it is something you are so interested in right now.  You will pick it up and ask us to open the door so you can play outside.  You might be using the chalk as a sneaky way to get to play more baseball once we are out there, but at least you do spend a few minutes coloring, drawing and talking while you create masterpieces that fade away after a day or two.

Art has always been something that fuels me.  I hope together we can create wonderful crafts, drawings and paintings as you grow.  

Just remember I love you little buddy.  You make my world a more colorful place.


Please continue on with your circle and head over to read Deirdre's letter.


  1. Love the contract of detail shots with the bigger pictures. How great you got to go to CM conference in SLC! I want to hear all about it. Hopefully we'll get to meet up IRL now that we're "neighbors" of a sort:)

    1. Contrast not contract. I need an "edit" button for comments!

  2. What a great way to encourage his creativity! Love the photos!

  3. Love these photos and you are taking the time to facilitate his creativity. It's hard sometimes to find the time to allow them to create. Love you took CA and carried it down to your son.
