A Love Letter to The Office

You guys, I have fallen into a mild depression over the series finale/ending of The Office.  Clearly.

Dear The Office,

I am embarrassed to say that I have shed several tears as these last episodes of your series are winding down.  Not just because of the heart exploding story lines, but added to the fact that Thursday nights will never be the same. 

You may think I say this to all the shows, but I have never loved a show quite as much as I love this one.  I feel like everyone contained in those walls of Dunder Mifflin has stolen a piece of my heart forever.

You, The Office, are also basically responsible for Aaron and I falling in love.  When we were just friends/neighbors circa 2007-2011 we would get together every Thursday to watch 'good TV night' - The Office and 30 Rock being staples.  This eventually turned into hanging out all the time, which eventually turned into a marriage proposal!
Evidence.  2009


For crying out loud, we chose our wedding song because it was Phyllis and Bob Vance's wedding song.  (Aaron wouldn't agree to copy Pam and Jim copying that youtube video and dance down the aisle to Chris Brown :\) We had to find a Sbarros in New York City on our honeymoon so we could take a picture of where Micheal Scott likes to get a 'New York slice'.  To this day both of us randomly start singing the Scott's Tots song- "Hey Michael Scott, whatcha gonna do?  Whatcha gonna do to make our dreams come true" or make remarks about pretzel day.  I have to laugh every time I see a George Foreman Grill. 

These characters are ingrained in our lives.

I could write an entire book of my favorite episodes, greatest Office moments, but I couldn't possibly narrow it down into only a blog posts worth.  It would just be too big. 

That's what she said. 

::sobs::

I will miss this show so so so very much.  I love every character like they were a member of my family.  Tomorrow when you air your final new episode, please know my heart is sending a message of gratitude to every actor/writer/producer/etc that was a part of this show and truly raised the bar for what constitutes good television. 

 
May we have reruns forever,
 
Love,
Natalie

Girl - me too. Seriously. For the last 4 or so episodes, I've cried my eyes out. I hate that it's ending. Gah - reruns forever - amen.

I've been tearing up at every episode too!
How awesome was that dance?!
I loved the proposal from Dwight! I was so excited to see him and Angela finally get together.
And Jim and Pam, sigh.

Chris and I are also kinda together because of The Office! I started going over to his apartment to watch it on his DVR and then we just kept watching it together. They should advertise it as a way to find your perfect partner. ;)

Aww This is so sweet and cute. I have to admit, I gave up on the office last season. It's rare that I stop watching a show that I love so much. But I couldn't do it anymore. Now, I've heard that this last season has been considerably better and I actually am quite sad I haven't watched the last few final episodes cause I hear they've been really special. I will try and watch this season on demand at some point. The Office did definitely provide me with some great laughs through the years though. It's def. sad it won't be around anymore.
