Where have you been all my life?
Dear Jenna: We don't get to hang much these days, but I so look forward to curling up on your couch, watching a movie, and enjoying some dessert and wine under the glow of your new Christmas lights!
Dear Black Bean Brownies: I baked you on a whim last night wanting to prove to Mike that the whole black beans in brownies thing isn't weird but actually kind of brilliant. You only called for 1/4 cup of black bean puree, but I still feel like I accomplished something.
Dear Jim (my nickname for the gym): It's been so nice hanging out again! Thanks for welcoming me back with open arms. I can't wait to be strong again.
Dearest Mike: The weekend is here! The weekend is here! Excited for more wandering, cuddling, and amazing feats (with gifted venison, yessssss) in the kitchen.
Dear February: You are fast approaching, and I can't help but reminisce about this time last year when I had just begun falling in love, getting antsy in my job and looking for another one, and writing this here blog. Last year showed a comeback for the littlest month, and I expect no different from 2012.
Dear Property Management Company: It hasn't always been easy or amicable, but you're finally fixing some of the things you said you'd fix back in August. Let's set aside our differences and start over, shall we?
