Breaking news: Young House Love hits retirement!
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Well let me ‘splain it.
I follow Young House Love. I bought the book, and waited in line for 3 hours in the cold to get it signed by John and Sherry Petersik. I gave them one of my planners. I wonder if they ever used it?
This morning, after a 30 day absence from the blog, they posted this. It’s official Young House Love just broke up with me. And you. And the interwebs. All we have now are archives to remember the way things were. Memories….(in my best Barbara Streisand voice)
They were in our lives for 80 months. Pretty much common law marriage. So any feelings of abandonment are totally understandable. Most of us are in the denial stage anyways.
This young couple shared their house (and lives) and we fell in love.
But all I hear is “it’s not you, it’s me”.
Young House Love, you’ve broken our hearts and decorated our houses. And just for that I’ve written a ridiculous rhyme to say farewell.
Ode To YHL:
It’s been real,
it’s been fun.
I’ll miss Sherry’s raps
and all those 80’s puns.
You designed houses, hospitals, and hooks
OMG, remember Burger’s photo-bombing looks.
Dear, Clara and Teddy
it’s all up to you.
To show mommy and daddy
just how much they mean to you.
We’ll stand back and let your family have their space
and we’ll pray that your mommy and daddy
will once again write in the Young House Love space.
P.S. Can we still be friends?
