Letters #5

Dear Husband,

Yesterday I told you that I cleaned up the HTML code on one of our websites, just because it was annoying me, and you told me I was so nerdy-hot. Thanks for appreciating that. You always seem to find the best way to look at things.

Dear 30-Day What I Wore Challenge,

Thank you for being so challenging. I’ve learned that I much prefer to be behind the camera than in front of it. Also that I should work on my posture. I’m sorry that you’ve become one of those projects that I start and don’t finish. If it makes you feel better, you share that label with yoga teacher training, personal chef training, knitting a blanket for my friend’s baby (I’m so sorry, Linds!), and keeping track of all the wines and cheeses we try. Maybe I’ll pick you up again someday.

Dear Lovely Landlord,

Thank you for sharing a bottle of wine with us, and for hanging out with us, and for buying us a lovely plant that I will no doubt kill in a very short amount of time, and for in general being the coolest, nicest landlord we’ve ever known. If it’s okay with you, we’ll probably live here forever.

Dear Sushi,

Thank you for being so tasty and fun to eat. I plan on introducing you to my parents-in-law this weekend at Uchiko, and I know you won’t disappoint. Who can resist your raw-ness, your rice-ness, your fresh-ness, and your beautiful simplicity? I know I can’t.

Dear Rain,

It would be really cool if you could hang out here for a while! We haven’t seen you in forever, and as I hear from farmers and gardeners and such, you’re kind of important. I’ll do a fun jig for you if you stop by. K thx.

Dear Cameras,

I know I’ve been neglecting you lately, partially because you’re so heavy to carry around, and partially because I just haven’t been feeling inspired. I just want you to know that I’m thinking of you, and I miss you, and I hope to pick you up again soon.

Dear Austin,

Thank you for this, and this, and this and this and this and this and this! You make me feel so proud. 🙂

Happy Wednesday, everyone!
