My Love Note

Dear Judson,

I love coming home to you. A house is not a home. A home is a community of smiling, laughing neighbors, excited kids, friends, and shining lights. A fairy tale like block filled with saturday morning breakfast, extra sets of keys for the locked out moments, hugs and hi fives. Judson, thank you for welcoming me home.
