34 Week Letter

My sweet Babe, I can’t sleep tonight, so I thought I’d write you your weekly letter instead. Hopefully I don’t come off as a maniac in my insomniac state. Forgive me if I do. Part of the reason I’m not sleeping tonight is that I cannot stop thinking about you. I think about who you’ll […]
