The things I want to say to you- a letter to a friend.


I bought pots for my aloe and my little tree this morning. They were both in desperate need of some space and Penny kept knocking the tree over and spilling all of the soil everywhere. There were more succulents out today and I thought about buying you one… But wasn’t sure how to get it to you. 

I always think about you when I do grown up things. Whether it be buying new pots or painting a room in my house. 

  I wish you still lived here. I wish I still had the opportunity to see you whenever I wanted. I know that if you were here you’d go shopping with me and we’d actually do all of the crafts and projects we wanted to…. If only because we’d hold each other accountable. 
I understand why you don’t live here though. And thank you for never judging me because I came back and stayed. It’s easy to see the outside of a situation and make judgements and I’ve never felt that from you. 

I’m so proud of you and all that you’ve accomplished. It takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there the way that you have. I’ll always be one of your biggest fans. I hope you know that.

I thought about texting you. But I thought that this would be a nice surprise. 

I miss your face,




The weather will be changing soon. The green will give way to gold, red, orange, and brown. The air will become crisp. It’ll be time for sweaters, apple cider, and pumpkin patches. We’ll play in the leaves. Try to combat all of them that have fallen in our backyard then, eventually, give up. We’ll sit outside around bonfires, plan birthdays, and just be still.

Fall is my favorite. I love everything about it. Even the dreary rainy days that sometimes feel like they’ll never end. Something about fall has always reminded me that things can be new again. Things are constantly changing. And just because you think you are one way does not mean you’ll stay that way for long.

I can’t wait.
