To my found treasure(s)
Although we’re merely an idea in my mind right now, one day we will all be together. I think about you, the family that we will be and long to discover and watch what is sure to be our clever uniqueness unfold. I can’t wait to share your passions and dreams, goals and ambitions and teach you and encourage and build your imaginations.
Every year I take this day to write a letter to my noble pursuit, my one day wife to be, but this year I want to include all of you, my future son(s) and or daughter(s).

This has always been the essence of who I naturally am.
Nothing troubles me and annoys me more than being stagnant and content, safely comfortable. There is a whole world out there with millions of opportunities, places to see and be a part of, people to meet, connections to make, roads to memorize, stories to hear and discover and live out.
I knew early on what my passion was. I never bought into that whole American
