Dear Jakey,

I write to you tonight mostly because I just want to remind you how much I love you and how much I miss you. We are getting awfully close to a year without you. Tonight while I sat in the playroom with Jake Muffin, I looked at some photos on the wall. One of the photos was of us in Lake Placid. We were sitting on the sand at the edge of the lake and you and I were both enjoying the cool water. It is one of my favorite photos. The other one is of you in my old Gucci’s on the beach chair. Daddy never liked that picture but I always loved it. Not everyone could rock those shades, but you could.  I could remember us sitting at the beach in Lake Placid. I can almost feel us there as I write this. I can feel the cool water and you leaning against my legs. And us watching Daddy and Ethan in the paddle boat.

Jakey, I just miss you. I just want to get through the next few weeks. I want to fast forward to December 9th when we are driving to Lake Placid. I can only imagine that is why I was so focused on those pictures from Lake Placid today. I know that you loved our visits there and I know that we will all be there in a few weekends. I just can’t wait to get there.
