It's been a while since I've written some letters.
I know your heart was a little heavy yesterday, looking back at how far you've come this past year but how far you still want to go. It's been almost one year since you left Utah. There have been so many changes this year. So many uncertainties. Your personal beliefs have changed, your priorities have re-aligned, and that's okay. Take the time to keep finding yourself and to keep finding the right people surround yourself with. It's okay to have doubts. Just stay true to you.
Dear New Instagram [or shall I start calling you Facegram?],
Not okay. Not. Okay. So, I can zoom in and see the exact spot on a street where I was located while uploading pictures? Sure, I can "undo" the places you tagged my pictures FOR me on the map, but, really? Why did you think this was a good idea? That's what I want to know.
Here is their reasoning: “We don’t want Instagram only to be about ‘now,’” Instagram founder Kevin Systrom told Wired via email. “Instead we want Instagram to be a visual collection of your memories — something beautiful and nostalgic.” You're right. Because I'm going to forget what street I was on when I posted that picture in my house... Mmm, memories.
Dear Online Deal Websites,
I think I have signed up to receive all of your emails. Yep, every single one of you. I mostly just peruse but I confess, when I do find something that's a really good deal that I just can't pass up - it sure makes me happy!
I'm over you. I mean, what's the point when I have to wear a sweater and sit next to my space heater all day at work because it's so friggin' cold inside? Not to mention, I can't curl my hair because when I do and when I do go outside, the curls say, "buh-bye." I'm ready to start singing, "O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum" and "The First Noel." No?
Dear TJ Maxx,
Your "impulse buy" section at check-out got to me and I don't even regret it because this is what I scored:
For $3.99 each!! Guess I'm back on board the Essie train!
You turn 2-years-old today!! I'm so sad that I couldn't be here the day you were born or for your 1st birthday but tomorrow we are going to celebrate in Minnie style! You light up my life and I am so happy and blessed to be your Auntie. You are so pretty and loving! I can't wait to see how far you go in life :)
Go link up your letters with Ashley!
