one hundred and twenty-two: a letter for Ana + Dianne

one hundred and twenty-two:


I understand congratulations are in order. Katya tells me you are bringing a beautiful new life into the world. She mentioned you are a little apprehensive too, this tiny miracle quite unexpected. Surprises are the best part of life Ana!

I have a hunch you will be a wonderful and loving mother. And I know you have the admiration and support of your ‘soul sister,’ no matter how many dirty nappies you force her to change. Congratulations and best wishes to you and the baby!

one hundred and twenty-two and a half:


Happy (early) Mother’s Day! Kat sung your praises and suggested I send you a proper letter. She tells me you’re a dog lover—me too! I had a sweet and gentle black lab growing up. Now I live in a tiny apartment so I’m pet-less. I’d want to be fair to the pooch, and I like the big guys.

Although I have no children of my own, I know you Moms tend to worry about your kids. Kat hinted you are no exception. I hope you take Mother’s Day—your day—off! Take a bike ride and let your kids spoil you. You deserve it.

Best Wishes,
