Dear… (vacation edition)

July 3, 2012 · 3 comments

Dear guy on the beach:
Settle down…sand won’t kill you. Your daughter won’t die if she eats some sand, your precious coffee cup will be ok. You’re at the beach…take a minute and enjoy your kids, your wife, your life. It can’t be that bad.

Love, chick with cancer

Dear kids…the way you jumped right into the waves with no regard for temperature made me grin from the bottom of my heart. Don’t lose that enthusiasm for life.


Dear fellow adults who jumped in the waves, too : fist bump. We rock.


Dear pregnant woman: the way you look at that man with your daughter? Perfect. I hope he’s the father of both of them.
PS: you look fabulous in that suit.


Dear husband,
I’m not sure who loves when you let loose and enjoy our boys fully more, me or them. Either way, thank you for being an amazing dad. And for being you.
Love, me


Dear hotel,
More pillows. More blankets. Much faster shower drainage. Less thumping from upstairs. And MUCH larger pool towels, please. No one gets dry with a hand towel.
PS: nice wifi and breakfast though!

Love, guest whose kid locked us out of the bathroom


Dear cats,
Thank you for making all four of us laugh out loud by being all up on the home security camera.
Don’t pee on anything!

Love, those humans that live there

Your words paint a picture that touches my soul. This is beautifully written. Thank you for sharing it.

You made me laugh and cry and then buy a home security camera from Amazon.

Have a blast and slip some sand in that guy’s cup when he’s not looking.
