This one is for you as I leave for college, again. The house is quiet without me around, isn't it? It's kind of weird not being it home, but I'm getting used to it. I hope you're adjusting to the quietness of just Garrett, you and the pups! I just wanted to tell you a few things.
First, I will always appreciate everything you do for me. When you text me 5 times in a row (because I'm probably sleeping) asking if I like a certain shirt or blanket, or even just something small like canvas or quote sign, it means a lot to me. It is the little things like that that I appreciate because it means that you're thinking about me (of course you are!)!
Next, as much as I am a grump and complain about it, I love our breakfast dates. We all know that I'm not a morning person, but going to Eat'n'Park with you, almost weekly, makes getting out of bed a little bit easier. Even though you sometimes try to get me up at 8:30, I enjoy the time we spend together eating some great (& unhealthy) food.
Lastly, I want to thank you for your unconditional love. Thank you for loving me even when I change my major multiple times. Thank you for loving me when I give you some 'tude. And thank you for loving me whenever I am crazy hyper and bouncing off of the walls. Without your love, I would be a sad college student, and we already know how that would work out.
So while I'm here at college, and you're at home cheering me on, just know that I appreciate all of the things you do, especially the little things. I love you so much & wouldn't want anyone else to be my mother.
