Best blanket ever

Julie's blanket

My aunt Julie, who lives on John’s Island in Washington, made this blanket for Phoebe. But there’s more to it. Each pattern represents something special. As her letter says:

  • Yellow duckies: just for you, baby girl!
  • Dog paws:  in honor of Carter, your first dog
  • Clouds, stars and the moon: for sweet dreams, and because you are loved more than all the stars in the sky
  • Fairies: in honor of two little fairies that have been protecting children for years, Pat and Maureen, resting on each side of your bed at night to watch over you
  • Hearts: to remember you are loved so much by so many

What a lucky little girl to have such a nice aunt, even miles away.
