To Everly, From Jude

Jude, Everly’s 3 year old brother, saw me writing on my computer and when he found out that I was writing a letter to her for her birthday, he wanted to “write a card” too. These are his words to his sister on her second birthday. (I definitely had a few tears as he talked about how...
