  3. I made pie and would share it with you if you were here (or I were there). Fancy a slice of strawberry rhubarb?

  8. You get to the heart of the matter swiftly with great prose (sometimes poetry) and sublime imagery.

  10. Dear Mle Jean,

    Thank you! But this isn't supposed to be about me! The comments link used to be "peanut butter and jelly sandwiches" but I heard that was confusing to people. Your spirit and good energy shines through the computer! Thanks for the light.

    Love,
    Gracie

  11. Dear Raina,

    I don't know what a kugel is (guess I should google!) but it sounds delicious (also, a little like a vadge workout.)

    I think you're so facking hilarious and you have great taste. Thanks for making me guffaw on a regular basis.

    Love,
    Gracie

  17. You are the best censor in all the world. Also, you have my favorite name for girls besides two other names for girls that are also my favorites. Also, you curse just enough.

  18. Dear Celia,

    Wow, what a compliment. Thank you. I think you're super fresh, sassy & honest. I like your take no bs attitude and I'm fairly convinced that you couldn't take a bad photo if your life depended on it (and your cat hella handsome.)

    xoxo,
    Gracie

    Talk about generosity...you're the most giving person in the whole world!

    Thanks for still talking to me even though I'm the worst package sender ever. I swear your box is still sitting in the corner of my office. If I do one thing this summer...

    Also, you're a haiku master.

    Love,
    Gracie

    Gracie

  34. You send fabulous mail. Yours was the best care package I ever got, and I didn't even deserve it, which made it even better. Thank you for being snarky and sarcastic and smart and not making me feel shitty about my little baditude problem by posting preciousness every day. Kissus.

  35. Dear P.,

    Oh. Mah. Gah. WPM is the first blog that fell head over heels for. When I first found it, I read all the way back in the archives. I savor each word in every post (ew, okay now it's beginning to sound creepy.)

    Your writing is so smart, HILARIOUS, heartwarming, and honest. You're the best story teller EVER. WPM is definitely my desert island blog.

    ...AND your parents are absolutely adorable. ...AND now you're MARRIED! Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

    I could gush on for ages, but I'll stop here.

    Love ALWAYS,
    Gracie

    p.s. you send great mail yourself ♥

  36. Grace.

    Where in the world would I be without you? Me and my brass clad pinky adore you.
    Your online presence and angelic little phone voice soothes my soul.

  38. Dear Melody,

    I love you this much. My life would not nearly be as rich without you in it.

    You're the most effervescent person I've ever met. In a truly genuine way. Charisma oozing out of every pore. I can only hope to be as open, kind, generous, warm, CUTE as you someday. I'd be happy with just an ounce of it.


    Thank you for being a friend. Beaches get steeches.

    Love you so much,
    Grace

  39. Your use of cumdumpster a few posts back has sealed my love upon you forever. I hope you're ok with that.
    ALSO
    I love your use of post labeling and I always leave your blog feeling like I have just taken a shot of whiskey(Not the part where things burn and your face tries not to crinkle up, the part when you start feeling all warm and fuzzy and ready to make bad decisions).

  40. Dear Mary,

    I'm SO okay that. Thank you for loving me....... and putting up with my wretched memory (OMFG, DID YOU HAVE A BABEEEE????), and having a bridge pack with me (NO, DUMBASS, IT'S MY FRIEND'S!).

    You seem like a lot of fun and you must have a very nice green thumb, given the name of your blog. You also seem like a GREAT friend. I love your photos, words, and lists.

    Love,
    Grace

    ps. glad you like the labels! it's so hard to keep them from taking over the entire page.

    pps. thank you, the whiskey sentiment is SO SO AWESOME! Just be careful, don't fall and bash your knee in 6" wedges.

    ReplyDelete
  41. your skillful witty prose, reputable badass-ness and undeniable allure inpsires me and you have equally charming bloggers for friends.

    p.s. the love overflowing in this post makes me happy and jealous! <3
