friday's letters

aj and allie [yes this is my best friend. how convenient are our names?]

Dear AJ, You're the cheese to my macaroni, the butter to my bread, the feast to my booze and my best friend for always and for life. Seeing you for just one weekend wasn't enough... not even a little. I can't wait until November until our beautiful foursome group of besties is reunited in your delightful hometown. Chicago had better prepare.

Dear New, Hotel-style Bed, You're coming along quite nicely and I'm pleased to say that I sewed... by hand... not one but two of your new decorative pillows. You make me feel like royalty and I just can't wait to take a million pictures of you and put 'em on my blog.


Dear Carey, You totally spoiled your bridesmaids by gifting us beautiful custom made earrings by Kendra Scott and comfy bathrobes. You know how I feel about bathrobes (basically they're my favorite outfit). I've worn one or both of these items everyday since the nuptials... too much?

Dear BlogWorld, This super talented woman was the photographer at Carey's wedding. Check out her food blog... the photos [and recipes] will blow you away. I'm also kind of obsessing over elephantine

Dear Body, We're on day two (round two) of running. You're doing well... keep it up. Or I might have to kill you. Just kidding.

Dear Steve Jobs, Lately, life hasn't made sense at all. But I think you put it well when you said, "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it."
