Letters #6

Dear Husband,

One time you talked in your sleep and said, “Mmmm, cake. Four. Four.” So tonight when I baked a cake, you said, “Mmmm, cake.” And I said, “Four. Four.” I love our inside jokes.

Dear Garage Band Next Door,

Thank you for finally turning down the volume on your microphone. We can still hear the bass, and I can still tell what songs your singing, but I no longer have to listen to the actual words, and for that I am grateful.

Dear Snow Cones,

It’s time! I plan to have you at least once a week for the next few months. I plan to continue my lifelong study on whether blue coconut tastes different from clear coconut. I also plan to make you at home with our handy dandy ice shaver and homemade syrups. Me + you = summer.

Dear Full-Time Job,

Thank you for teaching me so many things, and for introducing me to so many great people. I am glad to have had you, and yet I am excited to leave you. No hard feelings, okay?

Dear Freelance Life,

Hello! Be nice to me, okay? It’s my first time.*

*Everybody! I’m leaving my full-time job to work from home. I’ll be freelance writing, copy editing, and working with Justin in his design business. Wish me luck! 🙂

  1. hey crystal! wonderful news 🙂
    i’ve been working from home for about a year now and i can tell you it was the bestest thing that’s ever happened to me! unlike you, though, i hadn’t had the pleasure to work with many nice people in my life, which kinda makes me appreciate this whole thing a lot, lot more. but you’ll do just fine, and i hope you love it too!
    i also loved that you had the chance to hear justin’s sleep talking as it was one of the cutest things ever. sounds like something i’d say if i were to ever talk on my sleep… lol.
    have a great day, you guys! xx
