dear hair that’s finally long enough to attempt all the braids with,
it feels like 2010 again and i welcome you back!!!
dear kesha and your new song,
thank you for sharing such an incredible and powerful piece of music with all of us. i’ve had it on repeat all week and it’s still giving me goosebumps each and every time i listen. (also, can we talk about that high note towards the end?!)
after tucking my three babies into to bed, i walked myself down to midtown to watch the iconic sunset that you are at exactly 8:21pm the other night. i listened to all the music and felt all the feelings on my walk, quietly crying happy and then sad and then happy tears again as i made my way to 57th street. this week has been one the best and simultaneously one of the most difficult. and then, clouds. so many clouds and no sunset at all. looks like it’s been a week for us both. so manhattanhenge, let’s promise each other to both have a killer next 365 days so when we meet again next summer, there aren’t any tears or any clouds in sight. yes? i can’t wait. looking forward to it!
dear otter pops,
when i bought a big pack of you and pulled you out of the freezer as a surprise for my kids, samson excitedly ran to find his sister yelling, “ELEANOR! MAMA GOT US BEEVER POPS!!!!” and for some reason, it’s been hard to not call you beaver pops since. i’m sorry. he’s so cute though.
we have been counting down the weeks until our trip to spain for like nine months now and are so excited to visit you next month! (speaking of, wanted to get all of your tips and recommendations in advance of good places to eat and things to do while we are there? i know a lot of my readers are from or have visited spain so i want your expert opinions! thank you in advance!)
dear warm homemade chocolate chip banana bread fresh out of the oven,
i’m confident you’re better than any cookie or pie or piece of cake i ever did encounter. i’m officially the most banana bread obsessed girl that ever did live.
thank you for the kindest responses to when i shared a photo of our new apartment! we are so excited to move in and make it a home and continue to live our little new york dream for a little longer. i can’t wait to decorate and organize and move things around a million times and share it all with you!
