Dear Friday. This week kind of dragged by. I need you to start coming back around faster for me, please. Dear Husband. Thank you so much for writing your version of our history. Reading it made me laugh, cry, and love you even more. I'm so lucky to have you! Less than 1.5 months...almost there. Dear pups. Remember that one time I decided to be proactive and take you all running with me? Yeah, well, that probably won't ever happen again. Dear Alyssa. You bought your ticket. You fly in on the 8th of August. I CAN'T FREAKING WAIT. Dear Ramstein AB. The parking situation on the 4th was ridiculous. Seriously. Get on top of that before next year. Dear 4th of July in Germany. While you weren't as large and grand as the San Francisco fireworks, didn't have an awesome parade like Huntington Beach, or an awesome view like Rochester [MN], you did the job fine. The carnival was cute, the kids seems to know to stay away from me, and seeing every single person stop what they were doing to listen to the National Anthem almost made me cry. Nothing can make you feel as patriotic as celebrating Independence Day on a military base. Dear blogger friends. Hope you all had a wonderful week! Can't wait to catch up on posts today. Dear new followers. Welcome! This little site seems to be growing and growing. As happy as it makes me to know that I'm liked, it also makes me a little nervous...hoping I can keep you all entertained! Dear PSE 9. I hate you. You're being replaced ASAP. Dear Germany. Your weather has been gorgeous recently, and cool enough at night for me to be comfortable. Thank you! Dear random person that messaged me on Facebook. You seriously made my night! Thank you for thinking I'm talented enough at picture-taking to ask me to photograph your children. Definitely one of the best compliments a wannabe-photag can get!
