Letters to Our Children | March

Music is pretty huge in our house.

Music has such an amazing ability to take you back, keep you in the present, or make you think about the future.  I love that my littles love it as much as I do. “Turn it louder,” my son shouts to me in the car.  My daughter is at the age where there’s a song for everything.

For this month’s “letter,” I’m dedicating this one to her.

Come with me, my love

To the sea, the sea of love

I want to tell you

How much I love you

Do you remember that day we met

That’s the day I knew you were my pet

I want to tell you

How much I love you

(Originally written by John Phillip Baptiste in 1958, though one of my favorite versions is by Cat Power – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbMeAOTPJzM.)
