Dear Rand,

You know what today is, right?

Yeah. Holy shit.

Sorry. I know cussing is only for special occasions like the Superbowl and visiting your family. But still. HOLY SHIT, RAND.

I think we might need to count them, to make sure it’s actually true.

One …

We. Were. SO. DAMN. YOUNG.

Two …

Remember how you couldn't kiss me without all those little hearts popping out of your head?

Three …

Notice how I didn't post a photo of the fauxhawk? You're welcome.

Four …

Returning home from a weekend trip to SF, summer 2005

Five …

Aaaaaand, FINALLY. The facial hair appears.

Six …

This is when we were scouting out wedding locations. The picture is blurry because I was drunk.

Seven …

By now I had gotten the distinct impression that you liked me.

Eight …

Yeah, it's official: You DEFINITELY have a thing for me.

Nine …

Okay, FINE. Maybe it's a weensy bit mutual.

 –

Aaaaaaand TEN!

I bet you were expecting another kissing photo, huh?

I’m ready to re-up our contract for at least another year or seventy.

 

Love,

Geraldine

  • Crazy sky on my morning walk, and despite a childhood spent in Florida, it took me a while to realize that rumbling sound was thunder. I made it back just a few minutes before it started pouring down.
  • Look at these perfect little fuckers my husband ordered for me. Thanks, @emeraldpalate for the recommendation. So excited to try these. #notanad
  • Made a thing. Apple berry ginger. It bubbled onto the crust. It always does that. I need to figure that part out. Fewer vents, I think.
  • Ugh, hard same, gems. Hard same.

Watching this sweet show made lockdown a little easier. #stevenuniverse #stevenuniversefuture
  • It is the apex of privilege that I can walk around my neighborhood, face covered, and know that no one will think twice about it. Trying to be more aware of that privilege, and how I can use it for good. But even talking about it feels self-congratulatory. #irunwithmaud
  • When Alison Roman says to put her slow roasted salmon on a bagel, you do it. This was just lovely.
  • This is the team up I've been waiting for. ❤️❤️❤️
  • Had a video podcast call today. Host joked that the dress code was formal. Challenge accepted. (I've never had the chance to wear this dress out.)
  • Make Kouign Amann, they said. It'll be easy, they said. You definitely won't set off two smoke alarms, they said. #quarantinebaking #kouignamann #instadesserts
  • Would I go so far as to call myself a baking genius? Yes. Yes, I would. 😅

My family is from the south, so we would call this pizza bianca ("white pizza) - and nobody really made it at home. But I became obsessed with it when we went to Genoa, and Rand and I seek out whenever we're in Liguria. We may have canceled our Italy trip, but I'll be damned if I'm not eating all the carbs. #saminnosrat #focaccia #saltacidfatheat
