What happens when you decide you want to write 365 pieces of snail mail in a year? You start writing letters to everyone/everything. Even the dishwasher. So every other Wednesday I'll be sharing some of the letters that don't make the final cut to the post office.

Dear dishwasher, why did you decide to kill my butter dish? My pretty green Tupperware butter dish. If I didn't hate handwashing so much, I would quit you.

Dear readers, sometimes I will post first thing in the morning. Sometimes you'll hear from me in the afternoon. That's cool, right?

Dear Clay, I love you, but the 4am wake up calls have got to stop. Please.

Dear downstairs neighbors, I really appreciate that you keep your heat cranked up. As a result my heat has probably only kicked on a handful of times this winter. Yesss!

Dear body, I feel as though you've become accustomed to large amounts of dark chocolate. Well, we're detoxing. Starting tomorrow...

Dear bubble bath, I love you. The end.

Dear cute coach at the aquatic center, you're kinda cute, you don't wear Holister or American Eagle, and I don't see a wedding ring. Oh, and you're a Steelers fan (you complimented my cup ages ago). When are you taking me out?

Dear Facebook, I know you're probably wondering where I've been. I just can't deal with you anymore.

Dear Ikea, you are awesome and your food is delicious. It's probably a good thing you're thirty minutes away.

Share a letter you want to write this week!

Love these! Especially the Facebook one... I agree completely!

Trish said...

I am totally addicted to Ikea. Between that and Target I'm pretty sure we won't ever be able to save for retirement ;-)

Dear Jess: I think YOU should ask the cute coach at the aquatic center out.

I figured out yesterday if you unfollow people on Facebook your feed isn't as messy. This is not the same as defriending.

Dear Jess,

You've defected! You've left Wordpress and there were so few of us! I'm sad. However, Kelli taught me how to use Twitter, she clearly knows her stuff ;)

Love, Dayna

I love doing these letters. I'd be miffed if someone called at 4AM too. No!

Love these little letters! I might have to join in the fun. There are a lot of letters I'd love to write (including the dishwasher that completely crapped out on us over a month ago).
The letter to the aquatic coach has me cracking up. No Hollister or AE?! Get his number ASAP!

You could actually write that letter to the coach... and find out what car is his... and leave it on his car... but he may decide that makes you a crazy red head and decide to leave his job... you could try though right?! Jamie always says, "the heart wants what the heart wants".
