When I don't consider how the globe is warming, or what future of melting ice caps looks like, I am so thankful for the sweater weather. I could use one more really pretty snow, if it isn't too much to ask...but I shouldn't be so greedy.
Dear off-white chunky knit (with the stain on the arm),
I am warmed by your history. I feel lucky to swim in you.
You've reflected some pretty excellent images and you make me look cool. You're not so bad yourself.
You make the Hallmark side of cards jealous. Let's walk 'til our shoes turn brown.
Dear West Coast,
You look so very welcoming.
Dear Driving Lessons,
Parallel parking is a b----. But I don't mind learning how to get places faster.
Dear Rainbow Bagels,
I will not consume you for fear of rainbow insides but you're magical and more exciting than the bagels I usually order.
Dear Late Night Writing Sessions,
Thank you for the belly laughs, productivity, and the warmth in my belly.
You're the best thing about our president. And Kate McKinnon, you are better at being everyone than everyone.
Dear This is Us,
Dear Mid-Winter Break,
I took a breath.
This is Me:
My name's Melissa. I'm the girl with her hands in her journal. Married to my best friend and planning a lifetime of adventure!
