Last Saturday when I was doing some serious blog catching up (I’m still not caught up yet…please forgive me if you haven’t noticed comments from me on your blog), I read so many Friday’s letters; I began to love each more than the one before, so I decided that I would write letters this Friday as well.
I’m linking up with Ashley for this fun one.Dear Tim, I cannot wait to marry you in less than one month. I’m sure it’s going to fly by, and I’m sort of nervous with all we have left to do. Do me a favor and help me stay relaxed about everything? Also, please don’t be prying through things right now trying to figure out my secrets. They’re secret for a reason. Dear Annemarie, you completely overwhelmed me when you sent me a Stella & Dot bracelet I’ve been dying for and also surprised me with a necklace. I can honestly say that this type of kindness gives me so much hope about people in the world; I don’t even know you beyond little bits of blogging and tweeting, but you quickly offered to give them to me when I said I liked them a lot and you said you wouldn’t be able to wear them. Again, thank you.
Dear Mom, sorry I sometimes get short on the phone when talking about guest lists and wedding plans. I just get anxious about it from time to time, and because I know you’re always going to love me and be there for me you’re the lucky recipient of the anxiety. I love you and appreciate you listening to me through my stresses, wedding related or not.
Dear friends and family coming to Tampa for the wedding, you have no idea how much it means to me. I know it’s not close and not inexpensive, but the fact that you’re coming to celebrate with me and Tim makes me inexplicably happy and joyful. I would name you all one by one, but I know most of you don’t read my blog. Laura, Calley, and Blair, I know you do, and I am immensely grateful. I feel so loved, and I feel that it would be impossible to make you understand my gratitude.
Dear people who know me at the Greek takeout place, are there a lot of people that come there as much as me? Should I be embarrassed that everyone that works there knows my name and jokes with me when I change our order up? Yes? Ok. Well I’m probably not going to stop coming in the next month. We’re busy!
Dear Emily Maynard, you have to pick one in the end; you can’t keep them all. You can’t ask for another rose this week. If you need my advice, I’d pick Sean, Arie, or Jef. But again, you can only have one.
Dear swimming, I’m so glad that I got back with you on Wednesday. I’ll be back again today! You’re so great for my aching hip that doesn’t care for the impact of the treadmill right now.
Dear running, see above. That’s where I’ve been this week; give me one more. You know I can’t quit you.
Dear online shopping, we’re through (I think?).
Dear blog readers, I love your sweet comments on my one month post yesterday, and I love emailing with you, tweeting with you, and instagramming with you. Sorry I’ve been so erratic in the last few months. I’ll be back and regular once life calms down a bit. Thank you for sticking with me through all the excitement!
While you’re here, would you like my page on Facebook if you haven’t? And don’t forget to follow me on Instagram if you play there too (@lttlegrlbigwrld)!
