dear weekend,

each week i have the best of intentions to make the most of the time we have together. our list of activities usually looks something like this: clean clean clean, run some miles, work on school assignments, write letters to wonderful missionaries, do something creative... you get the idea. yet, somehow, you seem to go as quickly as you came and i'm left wondering what we accomplished between 5:00 on friday and monday morning.

well weekend, at least i have a nice, clean, and organized room to show for your last visit. maybe next time you come we can tackle the laundry pile i have building in the garage? let me know...

see you next friday,

dear office writers and cast,

the season premiere last night was absolutely wonderful; you did not disappoint one bit. in case you were wondering how high my expectations were, i was wearing a "jim halpert stole my heart" t-shirt. that should help.

for the record, i love pam & jim.

also, in a really weird way i love michael & holly together, so do your best to make that happen.

keep up the good work,

p.s. sorry for the season 2 picture. i'm at work and this is the best i could do.

dear meg ryan,

thank you so much for starring in "the women" and inspiring me to keep my hair long. you couldn't have had better timing; i was just about to chop it all off.

also, if i could be as hot as you when i'm your age, that would be nice.

dear mom,

since you get home from work before me, would you mind picking up a few things from the store? i need:
1. apples
2. avocados
3. everything but the... ice cream by ben & jerry

thank you - you are by far my favorite mother.

your 6th child

dear sweet summer,

thank you for all of the wonderful adventures.

thank you for making it so the whole family could be together to take these sweet shots.

thank you for the wonderful birthday spent at a brad paisley concert with some of my favorite girls.

thank you for the santa cruz beach boardwalk in all of it's wonderful glory.  thank you for the ferris wheel that made it possible for me to capture this.
summer, next year can please you make it so there's a major stud sitting next to me in that ferris wheel?  seriously, don't forget.
thank you for the fabulous 4th of july weekend spent up in arnold with my lovely friends that i've missed so much.  
thank you for keeping my bruises, cuts and scrapes to a minimum after our adventure at candy rock.

thank you for all of the celebrations, like jennifer's 18th birthday party.  i will never pass up an excuse to eat something incredibly delicious with homemade ice cream.

thank you for the trip to utah with my favorite sissy.  it was wonderful to drive 95 MPH on the highway and not get any speeding tickets.  also, thank you for making it possible for me to get a haircut by the fabulous jenna layne - it was much needed.  i'm so so happy the red hair didn't turn out to be too tragic of an experience.
and last but not least, thank you sweet summer for bringing letters from the cutest missionary ever.
oh Summer, how i'm sad to see you go.  good thing fall and i are such good friends.

i can't wait to see you next year,
