The Perks of Being a Wallflower

20 April 2012

Dear Mom, you are so talented!  Between knitting and sewing, you can whip up anything.  I look forward to having children, simply so you can make them cool stuff.  This hat you made for Jules? Amazing!

Dear Friends, I had so much fun with my Homebarrassment & Aussie Apartment Tour posts this week.  I hope you got a good laugh--because I know I did!

Dear Person Who Decorated This Room, thank you for being so awesomely creepy.  Your teddy bear collection, shiny window valence, and overstuffed furniture provided the perfect backdrop for my prank.  P.S. Do you live in Michigan? 

Dear Stephen Chbosky, thank you for writing such a great book!  I'm a total sucker for stream of consciousness writing.  I loved Charlie so much--I celebrated his 'highs' and wallowed in his 'lows'.  If I got a raw look into other people's lives the same way I got to see Charlie's, I know I would be a more compassionate person.  Thanks again...I'm a big fan.

Dear Katie, thanks for recommending said book.  You had me hooked when you said it was like Catcher in the Rye...and you were right :)

Dear Readers, you can also find me over at Clare's blog, C Squared W, sharing my tips for travel planning.  I'm currently planning our "big aventure", aka seven weeks of travel once we leave Australia, so I'm knee deep in travel planning at the minute.  Enjoy :)

Linking up with Adventures of Newlyweds for Friday's Letters

  1. Hi Emily!
    SO glad I found your blog today! I could tell I loved you by the fact that every "letter" you wrote I had a comment for! And as a fellow expat - well, ex-expat :) I love seeing what someone else's experience of life abroad is like. I lived in Istanbul, Turkey all last fall (my husband is Turkish...) and got addicted to expat blogs :)

    Also, as a high school English teacher, I have read PoBaW, and LOVVVVED it! I hadn't thought of it, but your friend is right - so much like Catcher in the Rye (also LOVVVE that one!). I might have to check back and see if you have recommended any other titles, I am in need of a new read!

    Again, so nice to "meet you" today - have a fantastic weekend!


  2. Ahhh!
