Dear Garlic, Cocktails, Onions, and Chocolate,
My heart hurts from missing you all so much. I can't believe that it has been six long months since I last ate you. I think about you all at every meal and yearn to touch my lips to you once more. I knew when I started breastfeeding that I might have to cut one of you out of my diet because you could make my little fella get a tummy ache. What sort of a cruel world is it when a nursing mom has to say goodbye to that which she desires so deeply? My sweet baby has no idea how much I must love him to choose him over you. It's a sacrifice I make out of love but it is a sacrifice that leaves me full of longing.
Garlic...oh garlic, you are in almost everything that I love. From Pizza to Spaghetti, I miss you so much. My food has lost it's zing without you here to dance on my pallet.
Cocktails, I miss you so much. I need a White Russian and I need one now. I miss having a glass of wine with dinner. I miss drinking Cosmopolitans and making bad decisions. I miss having adult conversations over flickering candles and the clink of a toast.
Onions, why do you have to be so delicious? Why do I have to love eating you so damn much? I miss hearing the sizzle of a plate of fajitas coming my way at On The Border. I miss biting into a crisp onion on my cheeseburger.
Chocolate, I think that I miss you most of all. My mouth is watering just thinking of you. It's so hard to pick a favorite. I long for chocolate cake or a chocolate shake, I would even settle for a Hershey Kiss right now, even though that would just tease me. Oh chocolate...I need you!
If Koen is not done breastfeeding in 6 more months then I am going to cut him off. I can't go on living like this much longer. To you all I send my deepest love!
Until we meet again,
