30 Day Letter Challenge
Day 8 — Your favorite internet friend
To Art Deco Dame/Bakelite Broad/Desiree K...
I saw this topic in my letter challenge and thought, oh snap, I know who this will be about! Isn't it crazy to think we have been friends for like 5 years? I'm pretty sure I knew you when you were pregnant with Heidi.
I don't recall how I came to be friends with you. I know it started with Livejournal and Myspace, though. I remember hearing more in depth about what was going on with you, through LJ. Social media formats have kind of changed, so now I get more of an overview. Still, I am glad we are in touch!
Even though we are only "internet friends", you are still an important part of my life. You "get" all my vintage stuff. Everyone else thinks I'm weird, for the most part. You make me feel just a little bit more normal obsessing over 60 year old dresses and expensive 50s china and danish modern furniture. I love seeing all your finds, and I like to share things I think you would like.
I also like watching your kiddos grow up. Heidi amazes me with her attitude and intelligence. She is just like her mom! I remember baby Heidi, and all the tough times you were going through then. I remember you waiting for Wayland to come, and now he is so grown up. He is such a little Josh! And here you are getting into your first house. You've come a long way.
I come across several things in my house that I have bought from you or that you have shared, and think of you guys. The space chair, the pink ceramic poodle, the vintage baby gowns, etc. I am going to start on that cowboy blanket for Wayland soon.
Anywho, thanks for being my friend! I'm glad you can finally have a home, have your family together, and I am excited to see what you do with it all. I hope one day we actually get to see each other, and we can be real friends...you know, irl. Haha.
