Dear Me,

Embrace your height. Stand tall. Wear heels.

Be brave. Try new things. Challenge your fears.

Know that whatever comes your way you are strong enough to handle it. You do survive it and eventually the memories fade.

Your three boys are your everything. Always be their advocate.

You will love a supportive, loving and generous partner.

It turns out math is easy. You just need to believe it is.

Slow down as an adult - spend more time playing when you can.

Create family memories, moments of pure joy, imprints on your children they will pass on to others.

Go with your gut. You know what is right for you and your family.

Life is better when you know when and how to say "No".

You experience more of life when you step out of your comfort zone.

And finally - wear more bikinis.

Love, Me
