a love letter.

April 6, 2011

Dear Keith,

I know sometimes (okay most of the time) I can be a real pain in the ass (please stop nodding) but I also know how much you love me. It is evidenced by the little things you do.

Even though you swear you don’t snore (you do, babe, and loudly at that) you have tried to help solve this “imaginary” problem just to make me happy.

You always let me have the last bite even when I insist I am full and can’t possibly eat another thing for fear of exploding all over the kitchen floor leaving you quite the mess to clean.

You put up with my flame (read: raging fire) I carry for Peyton Manning and graciously order the NFL Ticket every season so I can see every. single. Colts game. Even though the only team you care about is the Cowboys and we get their games played in our market for free.

You watch shows like The Bachelor with me even though you claim not to really be interested. We don’t have to tell people that towards the end of the season you were yelling at the TV right along with me.

You never complain when I make recipes for you that call for ingredients like nutritional yeast, chia seeds, flax eggs or smoothies packed with spinach.


You tell me I am beautiful even when I refuse to shower after working out, sporting greasy hair and big nerd specs.

You feed my addictions. Enough said.

But most of all I know you love me because you always find ways to tell me. Like after I come in from a run with coffee on the mind and this is what I find:

I love you, too. A lot. Even more than Peyton Manning. 😉

<3, Kelly

    Awwww, Kelly! This is so sweet! 🙂
    I wish I could get my husband to go for the spinach-packed smoothies. He still can’t get over the “green” factor. 😉

    • April 6, 2011 3:13 pm

      For the longest time I just didn’t tell him. I added blueberries to mask the green color and he never knew. They one day he watched me make it and he was like wow spinach in my smoothie…cool. 🙂
