My Affairs



I met Joe when I lived in CA for about 9 months in my 30's. A co-oworker suggested we get together and I just kinda laughed it off. The first get together wasn't that great because I thought I was looking for something different (nail polish remover).  I quickly figured out how unique Joe is, and fell in love. I knew the relationship would end when I moved back to VA, but there was nothing I could do about it.  A few years later, I heard Joe was moving to VA. I was over the moon and started telling everyone they had to meet him!





I really needed Michael after Drew was born. He filled a void for me and always had what I needed--no matter what I was into that week. I've been told, they don't make 'em like Michael in London, and honestly I don't know what I'll do. 



Finally, Craig and I got together when we moved into Monkey Grass Hill. The relationship was slow to start. We had to figure out how to work together. This relationship takes time and constant work, but it's so worth it.  At first Matt was totally against Craig, even told me to stay away.  Luckily, I was able to show him no one was going to get hurt and everyone gets something out of this relationship. 

I'm really going to miss my guys!  
You complete me Trader Joe, you satisfy my creative side Michael's craft store, and you have saved me (a lot of money) Craig's list. 

Don't forget me guys--I'll never forget you!

It is sad to leave those guys but you must meet Mr John Lewis for general household needs, Waitrose Esq for groceries, Mr Lidgates who will sell you the best meat, the Michanicou bros for fruit and veg, and the enigmatic VV Rouleaux for your haberdashery needs. :)

Julie, you had me going for a minute. I think I had it almost figured out by the time I got to Craig, because I have hot love for him as well.
