I miss you! I truly do not feel completely myself when we are apart. Throughout the day, I find myself wanting to look up and see your reaction or knowing smile towards a situation, or what someone says. I miss you greatly. You are my dearest friend.
Our Peter Karol! He is changing every day. I cannot wait for you to see him. He has such an adventurous spirit. I brought him to Québec for the first time yesterday! He loved looking at the colors of both the Canadian and Québec flags! Whenever we passed one waving above us he would look up and stare with his big, deep, blue eyes! It was adorable! He loves seeing new things and new places. I just want to show him the world with you. I want him to flourish and grow, and to have the greatest experiences. It is amazing to visit places with him that I have grown up traveling to. When I hold him and show him the streets and sights, I see everything with new eyes. Being a parent is incredible! We are learning alongside him.
How is Chicago? What is your favorite thing you have seen so far? How is the food? Did you end up eating at that French restaurant you looked up? I hope we can go there as a family, soon!
Thank you for the flowers and note you sent me yesterday for the feast of my patron, Saint Francis. What a surprise! The bouquet has such an autumnal flair, and each time I walk by it, I think of you. You know my heart.
Thank you for all you do for our family. You are my light and love.
