sunday morning letters

Hi all!

I've been traveling a little and away from my computer, but I think I finally figured out the Letters blog! I'm changing it to "Sunday Morning Letters" and will run this linky every other Sunday, so please, plan out your letters and join me!

Dear Barnes & Noble,
I'm not going to lie, I'm kinda disappointed in your selection of picture books. It used to be awesome with tons of paperback copies of various titles by Cynthia Rylant, Patricia Polocco, and Kevin Henkes. I knew I could find The Recess Queen or Enemy Pie any time I wanted.'s all this new stuff and only in hard cover! I need you to stock the classics for when my picture books are locked up in my office and I have a fine at the library!

Dear Roller Coasters,
I used to say yes to anything. No question, I'd do it. Just like I said yes to the Wind Seeker - Cedar Point's swings right on Lake Erie. I was terrified. 301 feet up and spinning around, just a lap belt and not even a harness. I was so scared, I closed my eyes and gripped (and sweated all over) the boyfriend's arm. Good news: I'm still alive, but I don't think I'll be riding everything under the sun from now on!

Dear Middle School Teacher Friends,
I had so much fun hanging out with you! I can't wait until our spring break trip...and if you send me the google doc, I will start working on all those movies I have never seen. (It's going to take a lifetime to watch them all!)

Dear friends who are thinking of blogging,
1. You should totally just start it, 2. You will have lots to say, and 3. Everyone will want to read it, trust me!

Dear new school year,
I'm not going to lie, just a little excited for you to roll around again. I am loving the summer, but I won't complain about going back to work. Well, with the exception of the alarm clock...

Dear Teach100,
I'm so excited to be listed on your website....and now I have new goals of improving my social media presence to improve my score. How awesome would it be to get into the top 100! Gotta keep reaching for more... :-)

Dear new school supplies,
I can't wait until we meet again! Soon, very soon!

Dear readers,
I didn't forget that I still have to do my reflection of the blogging challenge...that is coming, promise!

It's time to link up! Remember the rule of three, and give a comment to the two bloggers before you and the one after!


  1. Your letter to "Dear friends who are thinking of blogging" is something I can relate to! I know I certainly enjoy it and I'm glad I took the steps to Just Do It. ;)

  2. Oh, so there are many more movies other than Matilda that you haven't seen? I agree with you about Barnes and Noble picture book selection. I've had the same problem.

  3. I completely relate to the weirdly obsessed with school supplies part. My favorite line in the movie "You've Got Mail" is the one about New York in the Fall and the smell of newly sharpened pencils, I always think "yes! I get it!" lol. I have passed this obsession on to my kiddos. :D

  4. OK, good because I have to do the reflections on the blogging challenge I'm not the only one :)

  5. My house seems to be bursting at the seams with new supplies! It is hard to inventory what I have...must stop shopping!

  6. I'm so glad this is a thing! I'm going to link up next week for sure!!!
