Dear Gabby Douglas – I love you. You are an amazingly gifted and beautiful girl. You are going to do wonderful things for your sport; I hope you are ready for that. I am so proud of you for being the first in your sport to win gold in both team and individual All Around. Bravo.
Dear Michael Phelps – Happy retirement. Really.
Dear Ryan Lochte – I wish you would have won gold in the Men’s 200 Medley. I think it would have been the perfect hand off from Phelps to you. This is in your hands now. Make me proud.
Dear Olympics – I love you but you make me tired. I cannot stay up until 11 pm for 17 days straight.
Dear Siri – Welcome to our family. I am amazed at how strong our bond is after only 6 days. It warms my heart and I look forward to our many years and many walks together. Thank you for being the dog who gets me out of bed at 5:30am for a morning walk. (Olympics, did you hear that? 5:30 am.)
Dear Cakes – I am sorry you were sick this week but I am so happy you are getting better quickly. Thank you for breaking your shoe eating habit so quickly. And I promise I will stop holding you like a baby as soon as you are too heavy for me (which I fully expect to happen here in the next few weeks so hang in there baby!)
Dear Heidi – I am so proud of you for passing your swimming lessons and moving up to level 3. You are such a rockstar!!
Dear Erin – You are going to rock your half marathon today! BIG HUGS!
Dear Shawn – Thank you again for getting me another dog. You know what this means to me and how happy this makes me. I love you.
Dear Eddie – Please stop waking me up at 3am to pet you. Let’s try to schedule some other time to do that, say 7 pm?
Dear Peter – I wish you would come upstairs more. I miss you horribly. I promise I will not let Siri eat you. Let’s try to work on this next week. Okay?
Dear Pig and Daisy – I miss you every single day. Don’t ever doubt that.
Dear Coworker who had your last day on Thursday – It’s not good bye. But please get a facebook page. I want to stalk you. Kidding! Miss you already and I look forward to our first lunch date.
Dear New Job – I heart you! You are awesome!
Dear Manager – Thanks for the fantastic Mid-year review. Your kind words always motivate me.
Dear House – I will clean you this weekend. I promise. I might even put the laundry away. Maybe. Probably not.
Dear Readers - love you all!!
