Dear Emily,


As this post appears (since I'm going to try and use the fancy 'time release' posting thing), I should be on my way to Utah.

I just wanted to say a huge THANKYOU for everything you've done for and with me over the last week. It's been so so wonderful to spend this time with you and I've loved every minute of it. You've been such a wonderful host, and have thought of everything! As excited as I am to move on the next part of my holiday, there's a big part of me that would be happy just to hang with you for another couple of weeks, and I'm super sad to have to say goodbye.

I've loved getting to see where you live, and what your life is like. I love this part of the world, and you've done a beautiful job making your house a home. Your husband is a good and kind man who obviously loves you, and you have such a beautiful little boy. Despite the imaginary 'bad mother' moments - it's clear that you're a wonderful wonderful mother to him :)

I can't wait to have you come visit Australia in a couple of years (don't think I'll forget about our plan girl - so you'd better start the money jar!), and I'm looking forward to many more emails and photos as the years tick over.

I'm so glad I came to stay! So thank you for being a wonderful and gracious host, a fabulous tour guide, a whole barrel of fun and laughter, and a true friend of my heart.

Love you girl!
xo Tammy

You have mastered the art of time-release blogging and making me cry. First at the airport, again in church, and now this afternoon while I read this.

I can't tell you how much fun it was to have you here with us and have all of the different parts of my life mesh together. I only wish we had made it to the top of the mountain, seen the tulips, and been able to cliff dive while you were here. :)

This week spent with you will be what helps me make it through the next deployment and through this dry-spell of friendless-ness I'm currently experiencing.

Please make Brecken watch Glee with you (I think she's a fan of the show...maybe?) and we'll have to photoshop a picture of the two of us in our dresses so we can put them in our picture frames. :) And don't forget to set up that online weight watching thing and I'll make up a cutsy jar to start throwing extra money into so that Parker and I can come visit you soon-ish.

Thank you again so much for making us a part of your holiday. I wish you safe travels and can't wait to read more blogs and see more pictures.

love,
Emily

P.S. Abby-your cards that you make are super adorable. You're such a sweet sister to have supplied Tammy with your creations for her trip. :)
