Friday's Letters

Dear nasty hotel in Boston,  it's hotels like this that make me a) never want to stay in a hotel ever again b) know that what I see in the horror films could really happen... hotels like this should not even be allowed. I'm pretty sure we were in the same hotel as The Shining.  Just saying.  Glad we only had to endure the creep-fest there for one night.  I will now be burning the clothes I slept in that night too.


Dear work travel, I think it's safe to say that we both know how I feel about our current relationship. I'd be lying if I said I was sad that it's over. So sorry. Sayonara. Dear work, next week is the last of our screening events which means it is the last time this year I have to get up at 4am to get to work. My dry red eyes are thankful.  Dear God, thank you for getting me through this crazy travel season. Thank you for answering my prayers and using this time to grow me spiritually.  I can feel you at work and it is so good.

Dear Weekend, I'm ecstatic we get to spend it at home.. and the next week...and the next weekend.  What a great feeling!  Dear cold weather, you couldn't hold out for 1 more week? The first weekend I'm home you decide to show up...not cool.  Guess that just means it's time for boots and leg warmers. I could be about that... Dear Tom and Chane, I am so excited for our mini visit this weekend and to finally meet cute little Simon!  And I guess watch some football too...  Dear Bobby, although I have no desire to travel again anytime soon, this whole being away from each other thing has made me feel like a newlywed all over again and I like it. I am so happy it's Friday because that means I get to spend the whole weekend with you playing at Franklin's Pumpkinfest, watching football and just enjoying some much needed quality time.

Have a great weekend friends!! Got any fun plans??

I'm Coming Home!

Y'all. After NINE days of being in Massachusetts for work, I FINALLY get to go home today.  Five days I can do, nine?... Nine was a little long.  I feel like I've been gone for months.. which I kind of have been I guess.

Anyway! I am so excited to get back to my own home, my own bed, a regular routine and last but certainly not least, my husband.

Man do I miss this guy. I found that gem on my phone.. apparently it was too sunny to open my eyes.  Classic.

I'm excited to get back to blogging regularly too! I've missed it so much! But don't worry, the entire time I've been MIA I've been keeping a mental note of blog posts. That's normal right??

Sharp Top Cove 2012

Dear Friday, hello lover. I am so happy to see you knowing that I will be in my own home this weekend and that I only have to be at work for 4 hours today. What a pleasant surprise this is.  Dear travel, my feelings for you haven't changed since last weeks letters, especially because I have to leave on a Sunday for this upcoming trip. Although you are the longest of all these work trips, I am relieved that you are the last one.  There is light at the end of the tunnel.  Dear Bobby,  Even though it was a bit of an adjustment to be in the same home during the week again, my heart is full knowing I am going home to you at the end of the day and not a hotel room.  The thought of spending the weekend just you and me is making my heart beat out of my chest from excitement.  I have so many date ideas for us for this weekend I don't know where to begin. Oh, and I am totally digging your long hair which is why I keep refusing to cut it. Sorry.  Dear iPhone, where have you been all my life? I am so thankful to finally be part of the 21st century and to have a working phone. Now if I could just figure out how to work all these apps...  Dear laundry, I loathe you. That is all.  Dear Nashville, I wasn't a huge fan of the super cold weather earlier this week. Apparently you missed the memo, but we usually have beautiful, mild fall weather which is one of my favorite things about living here. The weather channel says things are going to start to warm up a bit this weekend so thanks for catching on.   Dear Young Life girls, I loved spending the weekend with you at Sharp Top and I am so excited to visit you at school during lunch today!! I can't believe it has been two years and I still  have not done this.  That alone should be enough for me to convince Bobby I shouldn't have to work. Right?  Right.  Dear Lord, you continue to blow me away with your grace and everlasting love.  Even during times of when I feel drained and tired and I'm just "coasting along", your love never fails to woo back in.  Thank you for your ever flowing compassion and grace. You're love knows no limits and my heart feels so full. Thank you. I love you.

Friday's Letters


Dear Athens, thanks for always being a fun city to visit... it was nice to go back even if I did feel a little old hanging at the Beta house (although all the freshman totally looked older than me...side note).



  Dear Family,  it made my heart smile getting to see you last week.  Joe- I was so happy to get to see you play in one of your Lax games finally and totally kick butt!! I still can't believe you are a senior in high school. Since when have you had man muscles?


Dad- thanks for cooking delicious dinners over the weekend, your cooking is something I always look forward to.   Mom and Sam- I really enjoyed our fancy lady brunch afterwards on Sunday for mom's (belated) birthday...

...even though it gave me food poisoning.

Dear Bobby,  sorry for the emergency room craziness on Tuesday and not believing you when my chest pains and shortness of breath were really actually just stress.   Clearly this traveling is affecting me more than I thought...thank you for being the loving and comforting husband you are.    Dear traveling, please see above.  I'm kind of over you and that's really all I have to say about that.   Dear Denver, how is it possible to be 85 degrees and sunny one day and 30 degrees and snowing the next?? I did not pack appropriately for your extreme weather, nor was I prepared for the altitude change.  Can't. Breathe.    Dear SHARP TOP COVE! I can't wait to finally get there this evening and see my HUGE but oh-so-amazing group of young life girls.  I have been looking forward to this weekend since the day we got back from Windy Gap this summer. It's going to be amazing and God is going to do huge things. I can feel it.  Dear Mom & Sam, I am PUMPED you are coming to Sharp Top this weekend. I promise you are going to love it and I promise I'm not going to stop trying to convince you to stay the entire weekend and not just until Saturday night.
