that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

open letter to my secret reader


Dear Trav,

I  am coming to visit you this weekend, will you have time to see me and show off your little handsome man? I know he’s probably the most popular kid on the block but it would really mean a lot to me. My own popularity is peaking so my schedule is filling up but I really think Eli and I need to make up for lost time.

Talk to that sweet wife of yours and let me know. Thanks for hearing me out.

  1. What did you think of him? 😉

    I just sent this song to Jes, and I think this is probably the best song for a new parent.

  2. What did I think of him? How can someone break and make your heart all in one breath? He’s absolutely perfect and beautiful and oh-so-blessed for having you two as parents. THAT’S what I thought when I got to snuggle with him. 🙂 I can’t wait for the next time.

    Beautiful song, too. Being ‘Dad’ looks so good on you.
