Friday's Letters

Dear May Long Weekend this is probably the most exciting long weekend of the year.  It's the weekend where Canadians will officially come out of hibernation and kick off summer - which is why you are more famously known as May 2-4 weekend (you know like a full case of beer).  You are technically in existence to celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday (Happy Birthday Q-Vic).  I wish I could be celebrating the kick off with the best of them in the woods.  The weather is supposed to be awesome - this never happens.  p.s.  Thanks Mother Nature - keep up the good work. 

Dear Lo I am thinking about you in these tough times.  xo

Dear Basil I found a picture of you when we first got you.  You were so oddly cute - and so skinny.
You definitely have fattened up. p.s.  Dear Readers - did you know that Basil is from Vietnam.  No?  Well you can read his story here

Speaking of getting hefty Dear Emily (that's me) Where'd you get that body from? Seriously want me to tell you?  It's from drinking hot chocolate with mini marshmallows at 5:00 p.m. everyday.  And potato chips.  And...and... and... so girl stop growing!  And get to the gym.  p.s. Dear Body are you listening?  Get fit already.  

Dear Potential Summer Road trip To Eastern Canada If I plan you - do you think you'll happen?  I am crossing my fingers super tight.  I want to eat potatoes from PEI and hear an East Coast Accent.

Dear Insomnia ummm...didn't you get the memo?  I don't like you.  I actually enjoy sleeping.  Why must you plague me?  You make my days so long and difficult.  There aren't enough sheep in the world to get rid of you.  I must invest in a solid boring book. 

Dear Steve It's been a long month.  I'm so proud of your strength.  But still everyday my heart is heavy for you.  You're a good man - just like your dad.  You should be proud of that.  xo
