Little Letters | Volume 2

Happy Little Letters 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 John Mayer, 
I was so so so looking forward to seeing you in concert this Spring. I went online to order tickets for the Mister and I only to be smacked in the face with a total of $230. While my love for you runs deep, I can not and will not pay that much to hear you sing or watch your hands caress guitar after guitar. Instead I'll purchase your CD and call it a day. 

Dear Brothers and Sisters, 
You have got yourself a fan for life in me. I am on Season 1 Episode 16 and can not wait for the next "shoe to drop". My favorite character is Nora, played by Sally Fields. If I am one ounce the lady she is when I'm old and a grandma, I'll be one happy lady, full of sass, personality and whit. 

Dear Connor, 
You have been amazing lately. Not only are you sleeping more but your temperament has completely changed. Goodbye is the 4 year old that drove me batty day after day. Now you are sweet and funny, wanting to cuddle and read books, play games and watch movies. This is the Connor I "signed" up for. Please stick around. 

Dear Bedtime, 
Why is it you and can't seem to get on the same page? I'd love for you to visit around 9:30 or so but it seems like you get lost each evening and don't show up till closer to 11. We need to work on this. Let's meet in the middle and hang out around 10:15; Momma needs her sleep.

Dear People Who Use Social Media to Complain 24/7,
I can not for the life of me believe that your sole purpose is to drive me nuts, make me roll my eyes and cause nothing but drama. I know there is so much going on in our country and many people are unhappy with the President of the United States but I can promise you this, bitching will get you no where. Stop your ranting, get off Facebook/Twitter/Instagram and do something about the things you dislike. Words mean something, actions mean more. 

Dear Trolls,
You are the cutest movie I've seen in a while and I have to admit, your soundtrack as been played on repeat for a week straight. Connor sleeps with his stuffed Princess Poppy nightly and often reminds me, Rudy and his stuffed animals throughout the day that happiness is in your heart, you just need to look for it. This is a lesson I hope CJ never forgets. Also, Justin and Anna, I love you both. 

Dear No Spend February,
So far you and I are doing really well together. However, I know for a fact that there is no way I can not spend money while on vacation at the end of the month. Maybe if I have James swipe a card when paying it won't mean I shopped? There has to be a loophole for me to use so that I can accomplish this task. 

Dear Orlando,
Your weather right now is looking heavenly. I'd like for it to stay that way, most importantly stay dry when we are visiting. I have had enough of the rain this winter here in Ohio, I expect nothing but sunshine and blue skies at the end of the month. 

Happy Friday, friends!
