Little Letters | Volume 1

Happy Friday, friends! Today is the day I write letters to my husband, to Connor and friends, to people in places I've visited, to the thoughts in my head and everything in between. I'll be sharing a letter-filled post with you each month on the second Friday. I'd love for you to join me as I join Kristin from Taz and Belly for this fun new Friday link-up. As Kristin said they can be serious or silly, just cozy up with a cup of joe/tea/wine and share your thoughts in short letter form. Let's begin! 

Dear Sling TV,
You are everything I hoped you would be and so much more. Nothing could have prepared me for the quiet time I had coming my way thanks to Nick Jr. and Connor's love of Paw Patrol and Blaze. I'd pay double each month for the joy your bring during the witching hour. I promise to never take you for granted. 

Dear sugars and carbs,
I'm trying to cut you loose. It's your own fault, seeing how you stick to every inch of me for dear life. I'd love to be able to enjoy your without restrictions but that's not the case. I look forward to the day our relationship is a healthy one. Till then I'll be sipping my water, enjoying a bowl of grapes, giving you side eye that kill. 

Dear hair,
What the Hell is wrong with you? Something is going on and if we can't figure it out soon, we are going to have to part ways. While it's been fun having long hair for the first time in quiet a while, I don't like how you just... lay there. Shape up or I'm going to have you snipped. 

Dear James,
Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking such good care of me and Connor when I got hit with a virus on Wednesday. I truly thought I was going to com-bust thanks to the fever I had. But between you helping me with my medicine, getting me cold cloths and tackling Connor so I could sleep, I'm looking forward to feeling better soon. Love you Coxy. 

Dear Ohio weather,
You are one crazy SOB. One day it's 12 degrees and the next it's sunny and 53. I think this is what caused me to start feeling so rough; ones body isn't used to all 4 seasons in one week. Quit with the rainstorms and just get cold and stay cold. Thunderstorms in mid-January is just foolishness. 

Dear LipSense,
I love you. LOVE. You have been a game changer for me and for the first time ever I can wear lipstick without it drying out my lips. While you are a bit pricey, you are worth it and I look forward to finding more of you that I have to have/can't wait to wear. 

Dear Toby from This Is Us, 
This is going to sound harsh but I'm going to cut to the chase. I was hoping to not see you again this week. Something about you annoys me. Maybe it's because you take nothing serious (not even a life threatening heart issue). I love Kate and want her to be with someone that compliments her and gives her the moral support she needs for a healthy lifestyle. Hopefully you get your act together. If not, I'll just forever dislike you. 

Dear Nike cross trainers, 
I wasn't sure if you were going to workout for me but thanks to your higher arch and wider design, I've been pleasantly surprised. I've also wanted to be a Nike girl but because of my arch and wide Flintstone feet never could be. You've stepped up your game Nike and I like it. 

Happy Friday, friends!
