Little Letters

Dear fall breeze: thank you for coming a little early this year and making our walks that much more enjoyable. I really don't know what I would do without you right now. 
Dear peanut butter: I don't know weather to bless you or curse you at this point, but we'll just go for a 'thank you', for satisfying my cravings in so many different forms and recipes just about everyday these last few weeks. Lets be friends for eternity how about that? 
Dear Cable One: I never have, and at this point probably never will do business with you in any shape, way, or form, so stop cluttering up my mailbox kapiche? save the trees!  
Dear Glenn Miller: I'm pretty sure all music sounds better on a record player, but your orchestra really makes it sound its best.
Dear blog followers: I hope you all know how much you are loved and appreciated! I don't say it enough, but I read each and every comment, and your kind words and thoughtful compliments really make my day, every day! You are really just the best. xoxo
Dear cinnamon roll candles: you make my house smell like fall. Thank you for that:) 
Dear mailman: Please stop trying to hand my packages to me while I'm watering the flowers. The porch is actually a lot closer to the front gate when you think about it, so it's in your best interest to just pretend I'm not there and put them where you normally would, k?
Dear Martin: thanks for coming back to your whiny wife when you could have stayed with the sunbathing babes in Arizona. I consider it a total compliment:)  
Dear Costco: Please order better watermelon. Like the kind you carried all winter when it wasn't in season? How is it that all the sudden your watermelon tastes like cucumbers? Lets ditch the hybrid thing and get back to the good stuff. I'm an addict! I can tell the difference:)
Dear Project Runway Season 10: Please hurry and finish and come out on dvd so I can watch you! We've been apart for too long, and you're the only thing that makes me miss Cable. well, you and Downton Abbey. Sorry, I strayed!
Dear washing machine: Thank you for being such a wonderful appliance to get my clothes clean everyday, I really don't know what I would do without you...although I really could use an apology for turning my whole last load of whites periwinkle blue... jus sayin'..
Dear Hancocks: Please have a 75% off sale on your trims in the next week or so? oh and the backing too would be nice. I'm getting so anxious about these curtains I can't handle it!
Dear life: Thank you for being so good to me and my family. you're terrific.

Sincerely, Emily

  15. Lifetime, the channel that shows Project Runway, actually has all of the episodes online for free! I don't have cable either, so it's nice to get to watch it on the internet! Just try and click on Project Runway, it'll be quicker than saving for the DVD!
