love letter*

*this post was inspired by this suggestion. and then by this post. and then by this unconventional entry.

dear YOU. oh you know who you are.

you have been there for me since i was a wee tot. and we’ve been together ever since. you are so steady and unwavering. so hot and delicious. there for me on cold winter nights. warming my insides. there for me on hot summer days. cool and calm.

you get along with all of my family members. and dare i say it? everyone likes you too. in fact, everyone wants a piece of you. but you don’t gloat or brag. you quietly offer yourself up to whomever needs you most. i am so proud to know you. and to call you my own.

our relationship never feels old or recycled, but rather consistently fresh and new. i’m always running into you around town. it adds a thrilling element to our relationship – this uncertainty of when i’ll see you next. and yet, when the situation demands it, you simply show up on my doorstep when i need you.

sometimes i think you know me better than i know myself. you are complex and thoughtful and i could spend every day with you. i have barely scratched the surface of all you have to offer, but i do have some insight into what makes you special: warm, simple, spicy, unselfish, complex, refined, and yet cheesy to name just a few of your more charming traits.

i am so excited that i have the rest of my life to get to know you. learn you. study you. taste you. be with you.

pizza, i love you.

    Oh this is good!!! Excellent love letter! I’m jealous though — pizza is my favorite food in the whole world too! :)

    • abby mumford Says:

      Adriana – to quote myself “you quietly offer yourself up to whomever needs you most.” so you see, pizza can be both yours and my loves. let’s just hope J isn’t the jealous type.
