Dear Monday, It’s officially chapped everything season. RIP to my mouth and my hands. Does anyone else’s hands get super dry?! It’s literally the worst feeling in the world. I’ll just be spending the next four months trying to convince Ty to get a whole house humidifier so I don’t feel like I’m living in a desert, #necessary.

Dear #ashlovesmugs, Last week I put a call out for ideas on what to do with the surplus of mugs that we have. I love coffee mugs. It’s kinda like my thing. BUT, we do a tonnnn. I’d love to keep collecting them in the years to come, but there has to be a natural “turn over” of some of the ones that we don’t use as much anymore. Know what I mean? Many people mentioned using them to plant in. Which would require me to keep them. I’m still stuck on a “remug”. Just gotta get the logistics of that locked down 👌🏻 Ideas?

Dear Christmas, I know last week I said I was going to stick to my guns and not put up our Christmas decor until after Thanksgiving and tide myself over by just listening to Christmas music. WELL, I think I might cave. Maybe if I just put things up discreetly, Ty won’t catch on. Suggestions? 😂

Dear Philly, I LOVED American History in school so visiting Philly is always like seeing textbooks come to life. My favorite place (besides Besty Ross’ house) was the Reading Terminal Market! Ty swears that the cheesesteak that he got here from Carmen’s was 10 times better than Gino’s & Pat’s. I had a salad sooo, not much to report there!  

Dear Ty, Remember when we bought an ornament in every city we’ve ever visited since we got married? Remember when we would just put them on one tree with all of our other ornaments? Well, I think we might be getting to the “max capacity” so let’s just move on over to decorating two trees. Ya in?

Happy Monday friends! We’re off to get on the road back to Virginia. Sadly it’s raining here in Philly which is good, since we don’t feel like we’re missing out on doing more stuff here. But also sad because what a debbie downer way to end a fun trip, haha! 


The idea for Dear Monday developed from a deep love for storytelling. Letter writing kept us close in spirit though thousands of miles kept us physically apart for quite a while throughout our dating relationship. This became the foundation for what our business was built upon. The idea that “true love can go the distance”. And even the seemingly small things like a simple note here or there, two hearts can be connected and a story can be written that is so much more beautiful than our minds can simply dream up.
