A Kinda Christmas Fashion Tale

Dearest Lucia,

Today you turn 5 years old and I just wanted to take a quick moment to tell you how much joy you bring to so many lives.
Being at home with you this year as been one of the greatest blessings I have ever have, and I have loved every minute of it, especially the snuggles and hugs and maybe even when you yell at me.
You are a strong minded little girl and you don't let anyone push you around.  You have the sweetest little flighty giggle that makes me think of butterfly wings and I love the "innocent" smile you give me when you're up to no good.
You are bright, loving and bring so much happiness to our days.
We are blessed to have you in our family and I hope you realize how much you are loved.
Today we will fill this house with the family and friends who love you just as much as we do.  These are the people who are going to stand by you, fight for you and encourage you the rest of your life.
I hope you can feel all the love that surrounds you each and every day.
Happy Birthday, little lady!
