Friday's Letters

dear dad,
i'm so glad for the ringtones you have on your phone. it gives me a good excuse to indulge in and sing to songs i otherwise wouldn't. i'm particularly enjoying "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson this week.

dear whitney,
being a child of the 80's, you were one of my idols along with michael, prince and madonna. you are gone too soon; i'll never forget the jam sessions in my room in front of my full length mirror with my hair brush.

dear neighbors, (that live directly behind me)
why oh why do you keep the back porch light on during the evenings? I don't get it. I'm trying to relax in my living room or watch TV,  and it never fails...your light is beaming into my space. oh i so want to knock on your door and tell you so!

dear March,
are you really only two weeks away? i really am liking 37.

dear schoolology, {google it},
i'm not really diggin you and if this is the turn public schools are taking, i am glad my daughter is
graduating next year. i am a fan of public schooling, it's treated us well, and my daughter
has excelled, but what is the point of this method?!

dear best friend,
thank you so much for the sweet valentine's gift, i love the little deer pouch from Etsy, and
i have devoured all the candy inside. it was so thoughtful of you.

dear nells,
I'm so glad your hair is growing back after your buzz cut back in December, I so prefer your fluff  and curls over any other hairdo you have.

Photo my husband took Valentine's night.

Ahh!I feel for you on the neighbor thing, that light would drive me crazy! That photo of you is gorgeous! :-)

Oh! I Googled schoololog. I find it a bit frightening. Why does EVERYTHING have to be done with a computer?

Such a lovely way to recap your week!!!

Erin said...

Ha ha your Dad's ringtone made me giggle! I can remember the time I bought one of her CDs...so sad she is gone already. You are so pretty in this picture!

Emily Hope said...

I was so sad to hear of Whitney's passing. Like you I also had jam sessions in front of the mirror - with a hair brush mic. Maybe I will do a tribute show this weekend?!

p.s. I think it's amazing that your dad's ringtone is Kelly Clarkson. SO FUNNY!!!!

Such a lovely post. Is there no way to block out the light from those neighbors to the back? That would drive me crazy. My grandmother used to leave her back porch light on in the evenings but that was more about the fact that it'd be summer and we'd leave the back door open with only the screen door between us and the world. She liked seeing people or animals coming before they were actually there. I have a hard time imagining that's the premise here considering the time of year and your general location. I think of all the great musical icons in my life time and how many of them have died and realize that so many of them have either died because of drug abuse or have at the very least, had a history of heavy drug usage. It's so depressing. I'm not even sure I can handle looking up schoolology. I'm listening to things lately and wondering "Really??" just about every time I turn around. It's doing my head in. hehehehe. That's why I come seek out your posts. It's good to find a peace of calm and soothing quiet in this mad world. Sweet picture of you on valentines day. I bet you had a lovely evening.

love the list! I might have to skip your school post I already have anxiety about our daughter going to kindergarten next year...lol.

So true about Whitney...I loved her when I was little!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

I would totally go knock on your neighbors' door if I was you - maybe they don't realize it's annoying?

juliet jones said...

love this idea!! :) great post!
