Yesterday, Valentine's Day, our darling Dyllan came home.

Once upon a the kingdom of Mercer Island, Washington, there was born a tiny little princess warrior who arrived 9 weeks before she was baked because she couldn't wait to visit this world and be with her Grandma Kat who was sick. Her parents, Queen Erica and King Dan were both wild and full of heart and humor in the most amazing way, and one could tell that this beautiful creation would be a strong spirit. Her friends had a huge party and showered her with gifts to celebrate her arrival. Her Mommy and Daddy picked up their already busy schedules running their castle, to prepare for her arrival home.
The kingdom was going through some tough times and the castle was needing fortification and Grandma needed help, so Princess Dyllan's parents decided to move in with Grandma Kat and Poppy. There was celebration in the land on the day of her arrival home. An Earthquake and tsunami had recently devestated parts of the earth but the world had come together in unification at the nearby country of Canada and were playing winter games. The love that surrounded her amazed everyone who came into contact with her and even those who just felt her strength through the love that a newborn brings but silently she was healing her sick Grandma...

I invite you to send me your chapter for Dyllan or come down as you have and share with her Grandma your stories. You are all apart of her now and will help her heal her Grandma in love. This is for real! This is your gift to her. Dream big and manifest the results.

Hi Grandma Kat,

When reading your “Fairytales” entry I couldn’t help but think of my own life as a story. Flipping through the pages of my mental autobiography I came across a chapter I’d love to share with you.

It’s one dedicated to your daughter.

Now it’s probably a little bit different than most narratives seeing there’s no beginning or end. There isn’t even a plot, instead a collection of moments and emotions that coincide with my time spent with Erica. Here are the ones that stand out the most to me:

Summer – I don’t know why, but when I think of Erica I also think of the summer. She reminds me of the beach, blue skies, tanned skin, sun kissed highlights, and the feeling of driving down the street with every window in your car rolled down.

Laughter – I’m not sure if I’ve ever told her this, but she can make me laugh harder than anyone I know.

Prank phone calls – It wouldn’t have surprised me if you’re daughter had become an actor. We used to spend hours prank calling people (or each other) and Erica was so believable … and could channel some of the best characters ever! A few of my favorites include a female body builder looking for a photographer and a congested geek she named Violet.

Crazy adventures – It wouldn’t matter if we were going to the mall, movies or just hanging out, Erica made everything exciting. Whether it was through an outrageous dare or her turning an everyday activity into a game, spending time with Erica was never dull.

Frozen yogurt and ice cream – it’s my favorite food and I know she has a great appreciation for it too.

Just feeling happy – You know that feeling when you’re reminiscing about something, someone or a moment in life, and you can’t necessarily say why, but it just makes you happy? Well, that’s how I feel about Erica. She’s like an endorphin; she just gives me a feeling of well-being.

Thank you so much for bringing such an amazing person into this world. I’m directing positive thoughts and prayers towards her, Dyllan Grace, you, and the rest of your family.

Lots of love,

Cory Midgarden
