Dear Mr. Loerke, this weekend I watched you repel 50ft from on top of Gray's Arch at The Gorge. Your adventurous spirit is something I've come to embrace over the years, something much easier I'm sure than adjusting to a basket of tampons in our bathroom. Dear Hipsters on Bardstown Road, if you saw me running a couple of days ago and thought I was dying, I was. Next time help a sister out and loan me your fixie. Dear Miguel's, my pepperoni and banana pepper pizza was the perfect meal after 8 miles of hiking in the back country. Thanks for being more satisfying than a warm shower and sleeping in my own bed. Dear Timothy James, speaking of bathrooms, I can count on one hand the number of times I've cleaned ours in almost 8 years of marriage. Your love for scrubbing bubbles and toilet wands blesses me more than you'll ever know.

Happy Monday, brave ones! Who makes your favorite pizza? Add Miguel's to the top of my list!

That is SO tough but from my travels here are a few. Minsky's-Kansas City, Wildflower Pizza, Hermosa Beach, the pizza is delicious but they make a spinach salad with house dressing that will blow your mind! Pizzaria Due in Chicago and just about any place in New York City that isn't Sabaro ;) Emily, You've been to KC, where is your favorite place?

Transmetropolitan Athens, GA. Final answer.

Hearing about a man that cleans the bathroom almost brings tears to my eyes. You got yourself a good man my friend! Makes me reflect on my own and appreciate the things he does for me! Cheers for seeing the good in our spouses and remembering to thank them. : )

Having a partner who helps around the house is such a blessing. Since meeting my guy almost 4 years ago, I've only done a load of laundry 3-5 times. It's amazing to come home after a long day and know there are fresh jammers just waiting for me :) Thank you for always sharing your beautiful gratitude with us all and giving us new perspectives on life!

The Mill in Black Mountain. Better than any pizza you'll ever eat! We're taking you there. Twice. End of story.

Love,
Bubby

Oh yes. Twinner and I found a great new place. The Mill in Black Mountain, NC (our new hometown)! We could not even believe it. The best red sauce, my favvvvvorite part of the Pizza. Its the owner's family recipe. Twinner says its the best she's ever had! I could eat it several times a week. Spinach, mushroom and kalamata olives.

John's on Bleeker in Grenwich Village in NYC. Best pizza your mouth has ever tasted. Your mouth will do a happy dance on your face.

Wow to the bathroom cleaning. How do y'all split chores/household stuff? It's a reaaaaaaal hot button for me and my guy.

Jessica said...

Ah, the chore splitting! I HATE HATE HATE doing dishes - it is without a doubt my least favorite of all household chores - and I am so grateful to have a husband who happily putters away over the sink night after night. We are lucky ladies for sure. ;)

Miguel's is amazing!!! Especially after a long day of adventure. I love pairing Miguel's with an ice-cold Ale-8. Kentucky love.

Quatro's in Carbondale, Illinois (where I went to college). Too bad I live in Seattle.
