Dear Mr. Veen: I know it sounds cliche but you really are my best friend - I like you a lot. Dear Fall: there is something almost magical and other worldly about your crisp cool air and sunshine. You are a favorite of mine. Dear Jake: I adore receiving your phone messages on the days I work letting me know you've made it home - could you be any cuter? Dear Kids: You guys are so awesome and are rocking it with the new routine. I am one proud mama. Dear Song: The other day when you came on the radio the timing was perfect. Help with being resilient in the form of encouraging music is always welcome. And last to Mr. Veen: It's Friday! Looking forward to sleeping in at least until the sun comes up tomorrow!
