dear eddie...14 september 2008




my darling man,

i am so grateful for you every day. i'm counting down the days until you move here. all day long i think about how happy you make me. i can't wait to move into the new apartment so i can practice my wifely skills. kristen dearden is going to teach me how to make you a proper italian dinner. amy merrick promises to come over and help me cook a manly breakfast (even though i know how proud you are of your fried egg and bacon talent). hopefully meagan bennett will give me a cupcake baking crash tutorial. i am going to make a conscious effort to start making my bed, cleaning the bathroom, and maybe vacuuming once in a while. i know you aren't marrying me for my domestic skills... but i can't wait to acquire them.

i will make us coffee in the morning so we always have something to start the day off right.
i will make you brownbag lunches to take to law school so you have at least something to look forward to during the day.
i will go see a drive-by-truckers concert with you sometime, even though i feel like i paid my dues with p-groove, allman brothers, and lynyrd skynyrd.
i will scratch your back at night before you fall asleep, because i know it makes you happy.
i will make an effort to get one weekend off during football season so we can go see a game in athens together.
i will happily fall asleep to the sounds of cnn, for i will be a much more informed citizen with you here.
i will make an effort to contain my little girl aesthetic to one part of the apartment. and i will find a spot for your knowshon moreno painting. well...i will try.
i will spend the rest of my life trying to make you as happy as you make me.

oh i am so madly in love with you and i can't wait for you to move here. always and forever, my love.

he saw this and laughed. i made him sound like a chauvinist redneck, and he is the complete opposite. i'm really the lucky lady.

ya'll make me so happy!! this was so sweet. i didn't think chauvinist redneck at all, but maybe because i know him! i'm so excited for you guys. also, i can't wait to see ginny's domestic skills flourish, i believe in you! though i have to say if this was two years ago i would have told ed to break out the apron and spatula himself!! you two are too cute.
xoxo

Nope, your post definitely didn't make him sound either chauvinist or redneck (coming from a random reader)-- it was just sweet! I also finally learned to vacuum (sort of) when I moved in with my bf. Anyhow, your blog is adorable!

Thisis so beautiful.
It brought tears to my eyes.
I am so happy for you girl, that you found the man that makes you happy and you want to spend the rest of your life with.

(I also thought i found him, but at this very moment we're both not sure about that anymore...how sad that makes me...)

However, love this post, it's so special that you show this side of yourself.
<3

Mila.

I don't know you and have never met you, I live in Switzerland, but once upon a time I too lived in NYC-- I miss it daily. BUT, I look forward to your charming words and this post was particularly darling, keep up your ray of sunshine!
