Little Letters : June 2018


Dear planner that I made just for work,

You’re earning your keep lately. Stay gold.

Dear Happy Planner,

Quit releasing such cute new products. Our budget is telling me to stop buying your things, but I can’t quit you.

Dear budget,

I know you’re for our own good, and I know we’ve kind of ignored you lately. We promise to get back on track and work on our debt-free goals again. I mean, our bank account says we have to get back on track, so there’s that…

Little Letters

Dear Will,

Sorry I’ve been at work more lately. I’ll get on a better schedule…eventually.

Dear Charlotte,

See above letter to your father.

Dear Koopa,


Dear Mom,

Thanks for watching Charlotte more lately. I couldn’t have asked for a better situation…and we can’t afford daycare (see : letter to our budget), so thanks for letting me pay you in coffee on occasion!


Little Letters : May 2018

Dear Summertime Cold,

Stop it. Just stop it. You are making me grouchy and grumpy and tired, and I don’t want any part of it. Go away and never come back.

Dear Charlotte’s ear infection,

See notes to my cold. At least you’ve got some antibiotics fighting you, so you should be gone sooner rather than later!

Dear planner,

It’s so nice to spend time with you again. It’s a whole lot easier to use you than to try to remember everything in my brain, which never turns out well at all!


This week’s layout before the pen

Dear Google Pixel phone,

You are such a disappointment. I thought you were going to be great, but your battery life is abysmal and your messages app constantly crashes. You are going to make me turn back to the dark (Apple) side, aren’t you?

Dear Will,

Baby steps and one day at a time.

Dear Charlotte,

I’m sorry I’ve been so crabby lately. I know it’s tough to not feel well and not be able to tell anyone exactly what’s wrong. I’m working to remember that, but I know I slip up, especially when I don’t feel well. There are going to be a lot of times like this in your life, but just know that I love you more than anything…even when you’re screaming at me at midnight, 1 AM, 2:30 AM, etc…

She loves being barefoot! Little Tennessee girl! 

Dear Koopa,

I really should let you out in the back yard more often. Maybe then you would quit chewing on Charlotte’s toys and making me frustrated!

Dear Amber,

It’s time to work on your goals, write more often, and take the steps you need to take to make your life what you want it to be. And maybe you should go out in the back yard more often too. A little sunshine can’t hurt anything.

Dear everyone who still visits the blog,

Thank you. I never mean to be gone as long or as often as I am, and I appreciate those of you who pop by and say hello, no matter how long I disappear. I’m working on being better at returning the favor!

Little Letters : March 2018

Dear Everyone,

I’m sorry I’ve been so crabby lately. Maybe some consistently warm weather and sunshine will help my mood turn around.

Dear Weather Forecast,

You’ve got a little too much rain for my liking. See above letter about my mood. Help me out, okay?

Dear Charlotte’s Birthday Party Invitations,

Maybe I should address you and send you…unless you’re having fun riding around in my purse. There’s probably food in there if you’re hungry.

Dear Plant Nanny,

You are helping me drink more water, and you are adorable. 10/10 would recommend.

Dear Blog,

I’m trying to rekindle our relationship. I’ve missed you. Have you missed me?

Little Letters : February 2018


Dear rainy weather,

You are making me draggy and sniffly and sad. I’m tired of you and would like to kindly ask you to evacuate the area. What’s that? You’re going to be around for the next 10 days? Well, then maybe next time I will ask you not-so-kindly…

Dear pants I wore yesterday,

I’m sorry I ripped a hole by the belt loop. You’re one of the few pairs that fit me right now, so please don’t let that hole get bigger. No one needs to see that much of me!

Dear Snoop,

I know that Charlotte plays your music allllll night, but if your batteries could last a longer, that would be helpful. Also, if your batteries could avoid going out right when she’s about to go to sleep, I would be okay with that. (Here’s an explanation of who Snoop is! Our daughter doesn’t listen to rap music all night hahaha!)

Dear sunflower seeds,

Thanks for making Charlotte so happy. I don’t know any other almost 2 year old that loves sunflower seeds as much as she does! Then again, I don’t really know too many almost 2 year olds, so there’s that…

Dear Friday,

I’m glad you’re here. It’s been a heck of a week!

Dear Koopa,

Stop trying to walk through all of the mud in the yard. I know it’s been raining for about 75 years, but someday it will stop and the ground will be dry again. Then you can walk your happy self through the yard as much as you want to!

Dear Charlotte,

How do you keep getting cuter and cuter? Also, how do you know how to do that little head tilt and grin when you’re about to get in trouble for something?!?

Dear Will,

One day at a time. Now, take a minute to get on Pinterest and look up the recipe for a Starbucks cherry mocha. That’s your weekend experiment… 😉

Little Letters : January 2018


Dear sickness,

Leave our house. Now. Seriously. We have gone through bronchitis, upper respiratory stuff, a “flulike virus,” and a cold. We are good for the year. Bye now.

Dear Will,

Sorry I’ve been such a crabby patty lately. Being trapped in the house with all of the sick germs has not made me the nicest person. Thanks for putting up with me!

Dear Charlotte,

I hope you’re on the mend! Trying to reason with a toddler about why I’m wiping her nose and putting ear drops in is…not fun.

Dear Koopa,

Stop trying to eat things that aren’t yours. Especially used tissues. That’s just gross, dude.

Dear snow,

You’re beautiful. Thank you for the days home from work, even if it has felt like a germ-infested prison at times. I’d rather be safe and warm with my snotty family than trying to drive through your aftermath!

Dear weather,

It’s going to be 18 tomorrow and 61 by this weekend?!? If you give anyone in this house a sinus infection, so help me…

Dear planner,

Sorry for abandoning you lately. If work gets called off again tomorrow, let’s spend some time together, shall we?

Dear Wiggles,

Thank you for being Charlotte’s favorite thing ever. Let’s work on getting some more seasons on Hulu, please and thank you!
