{Today's Letters}

Monday, March 11, 2013

Dear Timothy James, a year ago today we were eating goat and sleeping under malaria nets in Uganda. This morning we woke up to the warmth of flannel sheets and had Cheerios for breakfast. Thankful for both experiences. Dear Flea off Market, your live music, old junk, fresh-cut flowers, and food trucks made our Saturday. Grateful to have you back. Dear Farm Fresh Eggs, there's nothing like finding you in the fridge after being out of town for a week. Here's to lots of over easy mornings and French toast as thick as 2 x 4's. Dear Husband, after teaching middle school gym class I realized that some 12 year olds never learned how to run and every 6th grade boy bathes in Axe body spray. Thankful you smell like cloves and are fast like jack rabbit. Over and out.

Happy Monday, brave ones! What's your favorite scent? I've been wearing this ever since I was 14. Some say I struggle with change.

I found this stuff called Rugby at the Orvis store. People say I smell like the woods. I guess it's because it came from a fly fishing shop? To be honest, I wear it to distract my nose from the typical scents of the hospital. So far, so good.

I wear the original Burberry. It is my go to scent although I have several others I may wear just for fun.

I love DKNY Pink. But my favorite, "spray-in-my-pillows-sheets-curtains-so-i-can-say-ahhhh" scent is Lavender and Chamomile from B&BW. Something about lavender and dirt that just makes things right with the world.

I wear "Falling in Love" by Philosophy. As my husband says, "it's smells like Kelley!" I'll take that as a good thing.

Ralph Lauren's Romance since I was 16! Why change it if it smells good!

My husband would sympathize with you. I think Axe is the Brut of the two thousands.
I love Skin Trip by Mountain Ocean. Smells like Sex Wax. I've also been wearing patchouli lately. Just a drop or two. I love its earthiness.

thankful you're in Lou sleeping in the bungalow. I'll always adore lavender.
YOU KNOW WHY

My daily scent is fresh citron de vigne. I got it as a sample from Sephora years ago and have been in love with it since. I also frequently dab lavender oil on my wrists and neck.
The Flea on Market looks like lots of fun. I might have to road trip down from Cincinnati this spring/summer to check it out.

I've worn Henri Bendel's wild fig for about 7 years, but they've recently discontinued it and I'm distraught :(
