my bestie. + she's hosting a FABULOUS GIVEAWAY!

i was excited when this brown parcel was waiting on the doorstep for me. I get excited about mail but especially anything from my bestie Marisa. She never fails to not spoil me, seriously. Her gifts are always heart-felt and thoughtful.

& the card? perfectly us. It really made me giggle.

she gave me the BEST birthday pressie: a personalized postcard pillow from Fallon's etsy shop Olive. I LOVE her pillows and her shop is a go-to of mine when i need the perfect gift. But i've never owned a pillow, and now thanks to M, i have THE perfect one! M's message touched my heart and the fabric she picked out (the bird cage one above, already showcased in my living room) is my favorite. If there was a quote to describe me and my soul mate, it is the one she wrote:

"Are we not like two volumes of one book?"

- Marceline Desbordes-Valmore

i love you Marisa! with all my heart.

pssst... My gift giving goddess of a best friend is hosting her first giveaway and lovies, let me tell you... IT IS A GOOD ONE! here's one thing you could win:

a beautiful mug with Mr. Darcy's proposal

If you love Darcy, you must-must see "Lost in Austen"! I just blabbed about it on my blog. :) It's a mini series from BBC that envisions what would happen if a modern-day girl from London swapped places with Elizabeth Bennett ... if only!
