dear husband-to-be,

turns out i may not be so much of a city-gal as once was thought.
and i want the blinds pulled up, the curtains drawn, the windows open as much as possible.
i don't do well with dishes in the sink.
and i'll need you to remind me to do things every once-and-a-while, like pick up paper-toweling at the grocery store.
i want pictures everywhere and beautiful dishes.
and a garden outside. a yard, even.
i want the ability to obtain home-grown beef-steak tomatoes. (have you had them with garlic, balsamic vinegar and a little feta? nectar of the gods, i say. nectar of the gods).

will you be okay with these things?

that's all. for today. i suppose.

I love letters to Husband, Meg. I got a journal when I was in Vienna this summer and I'm compiling a book of my own -- inspiration from you!

What a beautiful header, and what a beautiful letter. (Rhymed! Haha) I think about things like this alll the time. I don't know how small town I could get, but I definitely decided that living in a city isn't something absolutely mandatory either!

I am in the midst of figuring out where in the city/country equation I want to fit myself, too. I want the culture/people/food of the city with the garden/household/life of a small town. I'm still working on it.

...never heard of 'beef-steak' tomatoes so i'm off to grab a couple - and some garlic, balsamic vinegar, & feta of course.

... everything else is right up my alley

(i'd also like a dog, say a staffy)

Loved your letter :) you should absolutely find someone who will be ok with these things! I'd like to think I'm more city-gal than I actually am...but like you, I'm becoming ok with the prospect of having a quieter (and happier!) life! xo

Ash said...

Hey MEG! I love this. Also, I love your header.

I still dream about what my life will be like, even though I'm already married.

Life's nice like that--you don't ever have to stop dreaming.

This is sweet. Very idyllic picture (the header and the picture described in your words). Hope you find that special someone.

Being a little granola is a good thing.
Leaving a little granola in the sink is not.
(Love your little letters!)

The city does get quite trying at times. Such a love/hate relationship ten times over in one day. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Meg!

Oh Meg! I absolutely love this. I like the variety the city life offers, it's like there's always something to do. But there’s nothing like a relaxing house in a small town, especially if it has a garden and you get to share it with your prince and a puppy.

Tucker said...

this is the sweetest thing ever. i know you'll find someone who loves every inch of who you are. i mean, how could he not?? you're adorable. (:
