Sunday was an awesome day for me. Dave is the ultimate when it comes to spoiling. I got to sleep in, I was able to talk to my Mom in Uganda, Roses from my yard, chocolate! It was a day full of spoiling… Best of all though, my kids all wrote me letters, Dave did as well, but my favorite was “written” by my shoe obsessed, almost two year old baby girl, Lily. I admit I laughed and laughed about this one, it also came with a really pretty pair of earings.

Dearest mother whom I cherish,

Happy Mother’s Day! Your loving husband and my dear father clued me in on the lavish gift he procured for you from the far reaches of the globe, and it occurred to me that perhaps I, too, could offer some small token of my appreciation on this day of matriarchal celebration.

Therefore, I present to you this token of my love and awesomeness. May the bedazzlement thereof bring you much pleasure, and may you not mind if I try to steal said item for myself on occasion. Alas, I must admit that I have a bit of a weakness for all things shiny and pretty. Perhaps I shall grow out of it in a few years or so. Until then, consider yourself warned.

Thank you for being such an incredible Mommy, and for all you do to keep me feeling so happy all the time.

Sometimes I hide your things when you’re not looking. I thought perhaps, in lieu of the day and all, it was time I came clean. I can’t seem to help myself.


Lily Grace Dickson



  1. I love you! And I’m glad you had a wonderful day. You’re fun to spoil. 🙂

  2. She writes amazingly well. Is she available for homework?

  3. I love the letter from Lily! *She* is such a cutie-pie. (you’ll have to read that with juuuuust the right amount of sarcasm Dave…) hahahaha

  4. She is an incredible writer! She must have an author for her Dad. 🙂

    I’m so glad that you had such a great day.
