-dear arizona

dear arizona,

you know i'm in love with you as a state, right?
well you also know i've never gotten over my first love, washington.
eastern washington, to be specific.

i went running this morning along a dry canal bank, through bare orchards and up and around slightly frosted roads. the scenery was dull, dark and simply beautiful.

i haven't taken off my uggs in over 48 hours and i've had my mom's warm barley soup for dinner and then lunch again. the boys have been trying out this new "socks and gloves" thing and i think they're finally getting the concept.

i miss your glorious blue skies and generously sunny january days but i'm reallllly enjoying the feeling of flannel sheets and a hot mug full of cinnamon apple tea. (enough to stay up and watch julie/julia AND post a blog afterwards- from bed).

please take care of my lonesome lew while i'm being loved and spoiled by my warmblooded parents.

sincerely,
heather

I'm having a long-distance relationship with the Pacific NW. We've never met in person, but I've convinced myself that we would make sweet, sweet magic together should it ever happen.

Enjoy your Uggs!

you would love it.
but only if you love amazing things.
you never know, some people just don't.
because they're weird and sad and probably into dolphins and disney.

I love uggs. its a pretty sick addiction.

i think if i ever left NY I would want to go to Washington. Thats the only other place I think I would actually be able to stand.

How is it that you make Kennewick seem like such a magical place? Don't you remember growing up and calling it the armpit of Washington? I do love Kennewick now and I wish we were there with you guys again.

I hate the cold and rain but your description of it even made me want to live there.
