friday’s letters {road trip and thinking about christmas}

Dear Husband, Thank you so much for driving 12 hours last night so we could get to Colorado in a timely manner. Now we’re at the hotel attempting to catch up on some much needed sleep — and Malcolm is taking up the entire bed, but what’s new? Dear Malcolm, I’m watching you very closely, wondering what the heck you’ve been dreaming about for the past 30 minutes. You look a mess, pup. Your long hair needs a trim and is sticking out in all directions, you’re snoring loudly, and your tiny paws keep moving. Chasing rabbits and birds? Most likely since you were almost successful in killing a poor bunny in Arizona. Dear Sad Sadie {Shelter Dog}, When we passed you over to my brother this morning, you automatically jumped up on him, tail wagging. I think you know you’re in good hands and that you will be spoiled for the rest of your life! Dear Colorado, I’m ready to explore! We’re thinking Pikes Peak and the Royal Gorge today. I can’t wait! Dear Michael Buble Christmas CD, You are the BEST. Dear Coffee, With you, all things are possible. Time for another cup.

So, who else is already excited for Christmas? :) I love Thanksgiving, but sometimes I wish we could skip right over it — mainly because I love staying with my family in December!

    Holy cow, Christmas in Scotland would be such a dream come true! I also wish Christmas came just a little earlier – why can’t it be holiday season already? Why must we wait for after Thanksgiving??

    I just found your blog from the weekend blog walk, and it’s adorable! I’m excited to be your newest follower. Let’s be blog friends?

    I love Colorado- such a beautiful state! I have to disagree about Thanksgiving, though- but only in the most respectful way. ;) I love Thanksgiving food and the fact there’s much less hype/pressure. My favorite holiday!
