little letters.

dear grapefruit,

you’ve made a huge comeback in my morning routine! i can’t believe i’d forgotten your existence for over a year! i love you.
dear sisters,
i’m seeing you in a few short hours and I.CANNOT.WAIT.
dear julie & mark,
we’re so excited for you and think your engagement story beats all. (as do celebratory get-togethers at good stuff eatery.)
dear drool,
i am so embarrassed you keep showing up.
dear NYC jury duty,
hello! why do you keep bugging me? i’m a DC resident now.
dear rain, cold, and wind,
i’d love it if you’d just snow already, or go away altogether.
dear 2009 Davis family Christmas tree,
you’ll be our 4th tree we buy and decorate together. i won’t say who, but somebody is going bonkers waiting to meet you!
dear cranberry sauce, stuffing & pumpkin pie,
ah! Happy Thanksgiving!
love,
naomi

    Naomi, I love your little letters!
    I love grapefruit too! (I almost wrote greatfruit on accident. haha)

  2. GRAPEFRUIT! I love it so much, and I go through phases too where I accidentally forget about it. mmmmm, makes me want to live in texas or something where i can get it always.

    happy holidays! have fun with the sissies, i know you will. and i'll keep my fingers crossed for snow for you, it's sure not happening here.

    At first glance I thought that was jello out of a mold.

    And then I read the word pumpkin pie and my own drool showed up too… :)

    i completely understand!

    Just wondered- my husband and I are headed out to NYC for Christmas- he's never been before while I grew up about 1/2 hour away (but haven't been for years!) I was just wondering if you would share a few of the "must see's" with us- and your favorite pizza place? Thanks!

  13. I'm with you on the grapefruits. I have one starring at me on my desk, tantalizing me. I have a grapefruit, but no knife today. It's just cruel!

    And OH so ready for Thanksgiving!!! I can almost taste it!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  14. Update: That tantalizing grapefruit got the best of me. I resorted to PEELING it… Rest assured there is a reason grapefruits are cut and not peeled. Always remember that. It was creepy. But it tastes wonderful!

    oh DROOL! ahaha! i slobber on myself ALL THE TIME – especially when i'm on dates! at fancy restaurants! so glad i'm not the only one, though.

    These little letters are the best! Dear Naomi – thanks for being such a great blogger ;)

  28. do you eat your grapefruit with or without sugar sprinkled on top?

    i'm actually a fanatic. i eat so many that it makes my tummy hurt after a while. i eat 'em sliced like oranges in a little plastic baggie in classes/at work.

    i also heard that you burn more calories digesting a grapefruit than you get from it.

  29. Jenni

    I love these little letters. So sweet. <3
    Have a fabulous Thanksgiving tomorrow. Eat your heart out lady!

  30. dear Naomi – i am thankful for your little letters. they are the best. they always make me smile and…
    dear rain, cold and wind – I am so with Naomi to just snow already or decide to turn into the tropics. i'll take either one at this point.
    dear nyc, I love you and don't ever change!
