Lindsay, you have grown to be a fabulously passionate mom. Elijah and Abigail have inspired you in a million different ways. Other moms have opened your eyes and mind and heart. Enjoy every minute with your wee babes and keep surrounding yourself with other like-minded, lovely and positive moms.

Lindsay, you are a good and generous friend. You’ve made some amazing new friends and continue to love your old friends. Some have even called you an inspiration. You often email, comment, make things for, make cards and send secrets in the mail to people, just to show that you care. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if you continued to do that. Don’t stop.

Lindsay, you work really hard at your job. Like really hard – and perhaps a little bit anal about it. Never stop being passionate about teaching.  Don’t regret loving your job.

Lindsay, you are a crafting machine. You’ve made cards and gifts and posters and board games and wedding maps and sketches and ornaments and tutus and lots of baked goods and decorations and art journals and mail art and videos and baby scenes and other awesome stuff. You should be so proud of yourself.

Lindsay, you rock at saving money. You’ve been frugal and thrifty and creative. Things have certainly paid off.

Lindsay, you’ve read a tonne of books this year. You have been loving it. Get lost in a book.

Lindsay, you’ve really made your house a dream spot to be. You come up with neat ideas and colour schemes. You get inspiration from different places and actually put them into place. With the help of Rob and Pinterest, continue to make your house your home and invite people to share it with you.

Lindsay, you know how you wanted to limit your Internet time? Don’t stress too much about it. You’ve been trying really hard to turn off the screen when other people are around. Way to go! However… the endless websites you discover inspire you in many different ways. They improve your teaching, find inspiration for your home and artwork, let you communicate daily with family and friends and even make you a little bit of extra cash. Don’t feel bad about exploring and sharing.

Lindsay, you’ve become the master of list-making. And although you get made fun of by your husband for them, he secretly appreciates the lists. Big time. Let’s keep making lots of lists, k?
