Dear Someone

Dear Bug,

Thanks for being such a thoughtful little guy for taking care of my boo-boo. Very sweet that you not only found the band-aids but opened one and put it on my face to cover my won't go away anytime in the near future zit. The blue Curious George band-aid would be a nice distraction from the pimple.

With love,

Dear Art Schools,

Here is Bug's self-portrait. What's that? Oh, okay, he won't quit his day job school.

A girl can dream, right?

Dear Boots,

I'm so happy I found you sitting alone on the "what will become of me" sale shelf last month . You're called "chain gang" but you're really not SO bad...but bad enough. You make me smile each time I even look at you and make me feel tougher and a tad more confident when I wear you. Look out, world mama's got a new pair of shoes boots...
Happy Feet

Dear Reading Time,

Where are you? I miss you and hope to have a reunion soon. Amazon and I recently spent some quality time together and I've now got a stack of books craving attention.

I've got our date planned out: a terrific hardcover (minus the jacket, of course) or wonderful paperback and me on the couch, my jammies, a pillow, a blanket, a bottle glass of wine or mug of hot chocolate and a sleeping Bug. Ah, I just need you!


Eagerly waiting for your return

Dear Sinus Headache,

Go Away! Three (or four?) days is long enough.


Visit Amanda at Family of Shorts for more Dear Someone letters.


  1. Ah kids..gotta love em! Love the art work! Can't skip out on the reading time, that's a sin. So are sinuses/allergies..sinful.

  2. Ugh. Such nasty colds going around right now. Hope you feel better soon!

  3. Sinus headaches are hell.
    Those boots seriously rock! I want em!
    Bugs picture is SO cute. Super cute.

  4. I hope your headache gets lost soon. Those boots are badass! Love 'em! And that little self-portrait is simply precious.

  5. i hate it when my kids point out a pimple. really, et tu children?!

  6. Aw man, let me know when you figure out how to get rid of the headache AND make time for reading. You'd be my hero. My hero in hot boots!!

  7. Lovin the boots! I so need to schedule some reading (books not blogs) time soon!

  8. Oooh, I love your Dear Someones! And the BOOTS! They rock! Now what's wrong with the bottle of wine? Other than it would put me to sleep and I wouldn't get any reading done? :)

  9. I am loving your new boots! I need some like that...and I love the self-portrait. It's precious, and definitely a keeper!
