Love Letters

Happy Valentine's Day! To celebrate the day of love, I figured I'd share a few love letters.

I love you Soft frosted cookies from Target - Your consistency never fails me. There are ten of you, so you last a few days and I can even share. The sprinkles and perfect amount of frosting - incredible. I appreciate that you are never crunchy and always perfect.

I love you Streaming services - The amount of variety you offer is so refreshing. Somedays, I can watch documentaries that make me a better person (and healthier) and other days I can watch the worst rich people in America act like morons and make me feel like a genius. I can order feelings by just touching buttons. I'm not ready to get into season two of This is Us yet, but you don't judge me.

I love you Sweatpants - You are a wonderful part of my day, every day. I walk in the door, figure out if I have plans for the rest of the evening - if yes, I determine how judgy the person is that I'm hanging out with and where we are hanging out - then sweatpants. They are forgiving, comforting and just pure happiness.

I love you Snow sports - I have been watching the figure skating and it's entertaining, but the snowboarding and skiing this year have had me on the edge of my seat. We have watched the Olympics seven nights in a row and I'm not mad about it. I have been on a roller coaster of emotions with you snow sports.

I love you Self control - You have gotten me through the last month of travel without falling completely off track. We have bought groceries and cooked as many meals as possible at our rental places. Salads, smoothies, veggies and having my water bottle with me. I knew you wouldn't let me down.

I love you Small Family - It's been a long few months, but I'm so happy to be in a lakeside rental watching the Olympics tonight. With the long work days and crazy travel schedule, knowing that we at least get to be in the same place most nights makes me insanely happy. Plus, it's Lola's birthday (that we made up because she's adopted with no real paperwork.) She has been such a trooper since becoming an only child and we are so lucky.

Hope you enjoyed some things that you love today.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
