{Today's Letters}

Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, when I got home last night after hanging out with the girls you were waiting by the curb to greet me. You asked to carry my bags and wanted to know all about my day. This made me feel so loved. Dear Triathlon, after an hour and a half weather delay, biking in 40° temps, wind, rain, and hail, I can't say that I was all that disappointed when the race officials wouldn't let me complete my run. Next time I will race in Bermuda. Dear Mumford & Sons, this weekend Husband needed motivation to get his clean on. After two minutes of listening to The Cave he was waxing on and off our bathtub quicker than Mr. Miyagi. Dear Timothy James, you dance when you cook. And I think this is AWESOME. Over and out.

What motivates you? Music is a big one for these two gangstas. Don't forget, Fleet Foxes new album is now available on iTunes!

Music! I made a salad yesterday for a BBQ we were going to - I was dancing round to Glee and Jamie Cullum I think there was a bit of the Rat Pack through in for good measure (well they were covers but that kinda thing)

What got you into triathlons?
My friend Kam Singh is releasing his first EP next week - it's so exciting and scary all at the same time :) It'll be on iTunes woot!

Hi guys--I'm new to your blog and wanted you to know how much I've enjoyed reading all about you two. What an encouragement (and inspiration!) your story is!! But now, I just have to ask--do you ever find yourselves contemplating sweet things you can do for one another because you know it will make good "letter" (blog) material? I mean, I guess any excuse to be kind to our spouse is a good one, but I just wondered :) Blessings to you both! xoxo

I agree...we're pretty big into the ear stimulation here too

anne, tim and i love each other the way we do because it encourages each other and strengthens our marriage, not because it makes good blog content. take my triathlon for example, i did it because i wanted to and it has always been a dream of mine to accomplish one. but there are no photos. if i were to have done the race only for a good blog post that wouldn't have been staying true to my original motives for competing in the first place. tim and i place a high value on authenticity. the day we start fishing for blog content will be the day we'll stop writing. xoxo

Music is pretty huge! When it comes to some things, like keeping my house clean or decorting, cooking, etc, other blogs and pictures usually help me push past my apathy and get'r done :) Loved the letters!

I am a new commenter to your blog and I thought it was appropriate that you talked about music.

Music! Enjoy some today.

I love it so much, I have an entire blog about good music :)

I've always found that I am just happier in a clean living space. Whenever I live in mess I get stressed out and avoid it...why avoid any aspect of life? So I put on The Dance and clean, thats my power-cleaning CD. I do have to admit, I'm a binge cleaner/organizer. "Cleanliness is close to Godliness". Not sure if that is true, but might as well live by it. :)

Our house is never quiet! My favorite songs are ones that you can actually feel through your body! Mumford definitely have some songs that do this to me!!

Christina and Evan said...

I ALWAYS do my chores to showtunes or Disney music. It makes me dance and sing while I work, and there's always the possibility that woodland creatures will hear the music and come help me with the housework...

Devin Law said...
