{Letters from Naomi Davis of Rockstar Diaries}

Friday, April 01, 2011

People often ask me what was my inspiration behind writing Tim two letters every day. The answer: Naomi Davis of The Rockstar Diaries. Three years ago I stumbled upon Naomi's blog and was forever changed. Her outlook on life, playfulness in her marriage, and appreciation for all things small gave me a perspective shift that I didn't know I needed. That said, I'm beyond humbled that Naomi agreed to kick off our 6 week Guest Letter Writing Series. Be encouraged ...

Dear Mr. & Mrs Loerke, I'm blushing that my little letters get to be next to your little letters. I'd say I owe you both a cupcake, but I think fist pumps are more appropriate around these parts.

Dear
Mister Kingsley, Yesterday you saw a lime green ear plug lying on the sidewalk during our afternoon walk and devoured it before I could even say, "What?". Oh, the things you're getting away with thanks to my sleep deprivation.

Dear Sleep Deprivation, Isn't it time to pick on someone else?

Dear Baby Girl, this morning I did a little dance for you that included things like jumping jacks, polkas and can-can kicks. Thanks for humoring me. I always knew that dance degree from Juilliard would come in handy someday ...

Dear Weather, I sure hope you play nice this weekend. I wanna bask in the sun while getting my cherry blossom fix. No sudden snow storms, K?

Dear Husband, 8 weeks ago, we had a baby. Can you believe she is ours forever? How did we get so lucky?

Xoxo,
Naomi

NieNie and Naomi both inspire me also with their outlook, playfulness and appreciation of all things small. It was NieNie who inspired me to start a blog! ;)
