A Letter to January 2019

Dear January, Change is inevitable. You of all would know that. With a new month, comes a new year and a new resolve to be different than you were before. Better than you were before. I have met change with hesitancy, January. We said goodbye to my old dog Noah this months. As expected it…

A Letter to December (2018)

Dear December, You didn’t snow this year. At least where I live. I’m sure I’ll forgive you for that. This month has been about reflection, as you could imagine, December. Tomorrow we count down the seconds, drink champagne and kiss our partners at the stroke of midnight. It won’t matter what goals we’ve not accomplished…

A Letter to November (2018)

Dear November, Am I a burden? With all my ups and down? With my sharp edges and tongue? Will there ever be a Winter when I am not drawn to the comfort of my own bed over spending time growing closer with those I love? In the final days of your reign, November, I am…

A Letter to October (2018)

Dear October, We had a bit of a hiccup. Ever year like clockwork, I wake up to dark and gloomy skies and heart to match it. I am stuck between sharing too much and not enough. I have worked hard this summer to make up for all for our lost time, October, and I felt…

A Letter to September (2018)

Dear September, I’ve been busy. Between poetry, comedy, and dinners with friends and family I could barely catch my breath. It’s been incredible. I mean I definitely could use a break, and still I wouldn’t change it for the world. We will call this place our home The dirt in which our roots may grow…

A Letter to August (2018)

Dear August, You’ve always been good to me and I couldn’t be more thankful. I feel that I am my truest self in your presence. Some time ago I read a post somewhere about a girl who changes her appearance for every season and how the narrator loved her most in the Autumn. It’s a…

A Letter to July (2018)

Dear July, It may come as a surprise to you but I’m feeling good. Or rather I feel good right now as I’m writing this. Maybe I didn’t spend the whole month in good spirits but I am here now. I hope you tell June I am sorry for not writing. I needed a breakthrough,…

A Letter to May (2018)

Dear May, I’m sorry I’m late. This month came with hard conversations. Confrontation, tears, and heartache. I did not want to put myself back in that frame of mind to write this letter. Even right now as I write this I am hesitant to keep going. Having been writing letters for a year and a…

A Letter to April (2018)

Dear April, I’ve always thought of myself as strong until I had to say goodbye. In that moment, I believe I was stronger than I ever could have imagined. It always easy for others to say when enough should have been enough. Of course, we’re never that lucky, April. Last month I reached out to…

A Letter to March (2018)

Dear March, I think we started on the wrong foot and now I can’t even remember what was wrong. It was unfair of me to be holding on to such negativity. I know that there are times sadness and anger come knocking at my door, but in those times I can still chose to not…

A Letter to February (2018)

Dear February, I blinked and you were gone. We’ve now entered a new month and here I am still fumbling to find the words to say. I guess I’m afraid to start writing because I don’t want to say something wrong, as I so often have. So many good things happened, February. I drove to…

A Letter to Goodbye

It’s hard saying goodbye. Sometimes I find myself holding my breath waiting for your name to pop up on my phone. I don’t think it will ever happen again. I can’t say I know who holds the fault or if the shift was necessary, only that it’s happened and we can’t turn back the time….
