Dear Spring

Dear Spring,
Um, I'm not sure if you remember me but I sure remember you. I have been thinking about you a lot lately and well, I miss you Spring!
Do you ever think of me? Don't you remember all our good times? Yes, it's been a year since we have seen each other but I think of you often and fondly.
Remember last year in Washington DC? God you were gorgeous!

Look at what you did to those cherry blossoms! Ben was so impressed with you, he couldn't even look up.

Trust me, it's hard to find good seasons these days. Nothing compares to you. And I'm not just saying this because I'm currently with a really awful season. He's so cold and isolating. He often wouldn't let me leave the house. I couldn't drive, I couldn't even WALK on the sidewalks. It was really abusive behavior! My therapist says I need to leave him and quick!

Look Spring, I'm headed to Seattle tomorrow and I'm pretty sure I'll run into you there. I was just wondering if maybe, um, you would think about coming back to Madison with me? Before you say no, just know that this doesn't have to be a serious committment. Maybe you could come back with me and we'll just see how it goes. This doesn't mean that I think you're The One... I just want to spend some time with you.
And I promise, this year there will be no complaining about how much you rain or how I wish your temperatures were a little higher. I swear! I've seen how bad it can get with the wrong season. I'll NEVER take you for granted agian.
Just please come back to me!

Promise me you'll at least think about it. Ok?
I'll see you soon.
Or just call me.
You have my number right? Do you have my cell? Or you can always just email me back if you want to.
Well take care.
I miss you.

Oh, hey Becky. Um...yeah. So...

It's good to hear from you. You were always such a sweet girl. Sounds like you've been through some tough seasons, huh? If only you'd listened to me, right? And NOT taken off with that asshole, Summer? Yeah. I don't want to say "I told you so" but...I guess I was right, wasn't I?

Anyway. Things are good for me. Really good. Like better than ever, actually. I did some traveling, and I think I really found myself, you know? Yeah, I really feel like my life's been coming together lately. Which is why, if I come back to you—and I'm not saying I will—things will be different this time.

I'm willing to meet with you, maybe for coffee, and we'll talk, right? I'm not promising anything—you hurt me bad way back then. Bad. And even though I'm totally over that, I still need to be careful, you know? Because I've worked really hard to move beyond the unpleasantness, right? And I'm not just going to throw all that away for some chick from Wisconsin. (No offense.)

So. Yeah. Coffee.

I'll call you.
Yes I will.
