Dear Beau: I love that you sometimes make me giggle as we are trying to fall asleep. Hearing you describe me as a Chopped basket of ingredients never gets old (I’d be Lucky Charms, Good Humor ice cream bar, cow’s heart and durian by the way). Dear tomato plant: Thank you for the cherry-sized bites of deliciousness, even though I’ve neglected you over the past couple of weeks. I promise to keep you plenty watered from this day forward. Dear Facebook: Today is the start of my new relationship with you. I’m going to set my boundaries for a couple of months before I come back to say hello… that is, if I decide I want you back in my life. I guess only time will tell.
As I was typing this out, I realized my childhood best friend is due in 38 days with her first baby (boy) and I’m most likely going to miss out on those photographs. While we don’t communicate regularly, I’ve been following along with her pregnancy online. Miss Nancy if you’re reading this, please email me and I’ll give you my number (though, it hasn’t changed since high school). I’m sending positive vibes to you!
“Where focus goes, energy follows” is a mantra I’m keeping close to heart these days.
