Dear 2024 Jennifer:
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Just because husband spends 80+ hours a week during Tax Season working doesn’t mean you get to fight. You get to spend that time bonding with the kids. Plus it gives you that freedom to do whatever you want.
Treasure life’s little moments. You and the hubs are getting older and the kids are growing up way too fast. Before you know it they will be off at college, getting married and having kids of their own. Treasure the moments they want to spend with you.
Romance isn’t dead. Just because you guys have been married for 13 years now doesn’t mean you need to let the romance faded. Treat every day like it’s the first day you met. Sneak Kisses and hugs whenever you can. He loves it when you cook and clean. You love it when he brings home random goodies for you. Like your sweet tea or PEPSI that you are still obsessed with.
Travel whenever you can. You guys always talked about seeing the world. So far it’s been nice. Yearly camping trips, one big adventure somewhere in the United States but take the time to see the world. Take the kids with you. Memories will be made.
Don’t worry about your job. It may be exactly what you want but it gives you freedom. You have the freedom to coach, blog, travel and attend events for the kids.
Soccer is still just as important to you as it was 10 years ago. Granted your daughter would rather do cheerleading but soccer is still there for you to share. You are coaching your son’s team for the first team. Try not to be that coach.
Lastly, always remember to smile. Whenever you smile, it melts the hubs heart. A smile can last a lifetime.
Day 8. Letter To Yourself in 10 Years
