{Letters from Jeremy Larson}

Friday, April 29, 2011

Tim and I are super excited to introduce this week's guest letter writer, Jeremy Larson. We first met Jeremy last year at The Prophet Bar in Dallas when he was on tour with Sleeping at Last. He is an incredibly talented musician who to this day has still performed my favorite cover of Silver Springs by Fleetwood Mac. (You can listen to it here and his new album here). You may also recognize Jeremy as being the fiance to the one and only, Elsie Flannigan. Her blog is the shiz wiz and one I look forward to reading each morning! Mr. Loerke and I wish we could hang with these guys on a regular basis, and are convinced they give William and Kate a run for their money. Enjoy!


Dear Elsie, a few years ago I wrote you an email after seeing your profile on "that one social networking site." I didn't know you and the email said, "You just made my day. I don't think I had heard 'Playground Love' in a few years. Thank you." That was a lie, but your profile song was an easy conversation starter. A true statement would have been, "In one thousand two hundred and thirty days, we will be married. You are a very patient girl."

Dear Suki, do you still think it's funny every morning when I refer to your bowl of water as your "appetizer?" If not, I'll stop making that joke. It's hard to tell sometimes if you think I'm funny at all. Oh, by the way, I think you will soon be getting a sister ...


Dear everyone hanging out on YouTube, I'd like to make this day a national "Don't Be a Dufus" day. That means you have to lay off the mean comments about people's kids and puppies and what-not and leave a nice comment instead. You guys with me? Mark your calendars.

Dear Dad, I heard from Mom that you may have broken a few ribs two days ago, and that you refuse to see a doctor. That burns me out more than you know. But thank God we finished building that railing THREE days ago, huh?! But seriously, you should see a doctor.



Dear Bed, Bath & Beyond, we appreciate your help with the wedding registry. I'm still getting your emails everyday, but I'd appreciate them more if this conversation was two-way. You never respond to my emails. I'm not sure if you're reading them at all ...

Dear Daddy Donnie, your daughter still refuses to watch "Troll Hunter" with me even after describing it to her as a "Foreign Art-House" film. You raised Elsie well.


Dear (future) Mrs. Larson, Suki seems thrilled the wedding is coming up so soon. I already informed her that she will be getting a sister. Our family is really coming together!

Dear Mom, please do not cry at our wedding. If you do, I know I will. And Elsie will never forgive me for ruining our wedding pictures like that.

Love,
Jeremy

My Beautiful Life said...

I love Jeremy Larson's music. I came across one of his songs almost two years ago after the death of someone very close to me. I found everything about the song "Today" to be exactly what I needed to hear-both in regards to my mood, and what I was thinking. I just wanted to hear it over, and over while I was grieving. He is extremely talented, and Elsie is adorable. I am so happy for them. They are a dream team couple.

CAgridlock said...

I wanna make a woobie cape of the magnificence of these letters and then wear it like a cape ALL DAY LONG!

EmileeLindner said...

perfect

Lara Jane said...

this is so cool!

I am partial to the one about Troll Hunter, cuz my hubs and I watched it a few months ago and still haven't decided whether we like it. I think we're just weird enough to say "yes."

Asty said...

this make me want to make my own letter :D

Diana said...

Cutest. Puppy. Ever. Except for mine, obviously. :)
