{Husband's Letters}

Tuesday, April 23, 2013


Dear Sweet Em, I've been so encouraged lately by your Martha Stewart drive to make the Harvest House a home. Confession: you have much better taste in throw pillows than I do. Dear Natural Light, each morning you remind me there is an exciting day ahead and sleeping in is overrated. Thanks for helping me be productive. Dear Kentucky, I can't tell you how glad I am to call you my new state! Here's to beautiful commutes through rolling hills, annual Derby celebrations, and bourbon on the front porch with friends. Dear Emily Anne, I love that you like to play in creeks as much as the dogs do. You're the most beautiful woman I know.

What do you love most about your state?

You two are the cutest with your letters to each other!

Creeks are the BEST!

And I love the tradition of naming houses. My husband and I call ours "Basecamp" 'cause it's our first apartment and we have some big adventures ahead of us!

Robyn said...

I love how you remind us to be grateful for one another

What a beautiful photo of you, Em!
Still enjoy reading your blog and follow you two along on your journey of life!

Guess who is coming to Cologne/Köln in June ;) - Ben Howard!!! All inspired by your blog - I am really looking forward to the concert :)

I love that my Tuesday exercise is hiking through the beautiful mountains in the national park I live near. I've already hiked to 2 waterfalls since it got warm again!
And it also doesn't hurt that my state is so close to y'alls new state!
Love reading about the Loerke's!

Being in the military means moving along. My current state is hot and ugly. My home state is temperate (mostly rainy) and green.

I love green. I miss green.

Yeah, Husband's Letters are back!!!

What I love most about Colorado (which I consider my American home state) is a) the crazy weather changes which might include experiencing all 4 seasons in one day and b) living close to the Rockies. The Rocky Mountain National Park is my happy place!

Happy (almost) weekend :-)

My home state is New Hampshire and I love it because New Englander's are friendly &quirky...you gotta be tough and adaptable to live through months of wintery ice storms and Nor'Easters! NH has mountains to hike and ski, rivers to raft and canoe, lakes to fish and swim, and the Atlantic ocean to shell and bathe in the sun. There is a strong sense of community and a big back to self sufficiency movement. Antiques, flea markets, farmer's markets etc...I miss it. I'm on the Florida gulf coast now, living the tropical dream...but there is no place like home. Home is where the heart is.

Definitely all things Louisville. I love that we have four seasons, we live close to farms, we are 3 miles from the river, there's tons of amazing food, & my two favorite people just moved here.

Current state - Ohio. It's a great place - four beautiful seasons, great friends and good food. (Plus amazing farmer's markets).

I really miss the Rocky Mountains, though. That's where I grew up...majestic mountains, sparkling lakes and rivers, wild-life...one of the most beautiful places in the world.

The best thing about Texas is the food and the hospitality. Someone beer me a taco!

Kylie said...

my home state is Victoria (australia) - i love its trees, colour, variety, and most of all the 4 completely separate seasons!!

Hi! I just found your blog and I think it's adorable! I'm a little confused though when I read your letters. Who exactly are you writing the letters to? Like in this one is Em a friend? Or Emily Ann? Sorry if I missed something looking around your blog.

n, these letters are from my husband tim. he always writes me two (the first one and the last one). when i right my letters he also gets the same :) hope that makes sense!

~N said...

Ok and the middle two are kind of random thoughts?

Kentucky is beautiful. I'm an Indiana Hoosier through and through, but I live right on the borders of Ohio and Kentucky (Red River Gorge is great!) and go to school in Bloomington (Brown County camping is also fun). That area will always be home. Fall time is the absolute best around those parts! I'm excited to get back to the States for that season.

I love that I have lived in 4 states but am so in love with this one. Tennessee has so much to offer. Hills, 4 beautiful seasons, kind souls, sunsets, creeks, mountains, and more.

Love seeing what you guys are doing with your home and how you love Lou, KY.
