nothing like receiving a gift from my best friend. scratch that... nothing like coming home from a snail of a day at work to a beautiful package from my best friend and her beautiful daughter.
^How pretty is the wooden tin? one of our old favorite tv shows was Felicity. Do you remember when Felicity used to send "tape letters" to her friend Sally? my bestie came up with a fabulous idea to "talk" letters. This was our first exchange and i'm excited about it! it's so nice to hear my soulmate's thoughts out loud. and her daughter is precious! she made me the above card and headband. i love it! and i'm loving her letters.
^me and stella got a letter from sweet Alyssa! she made us matching bow necklaces- loveee! she saw Stella got her first haircut and said that was reason to celebrate. Stella bear sends you puppy kisses xo and! she has a little gift going out to you this week.
^a much anticipated Hello from Erin (j'adore the card!)
^from L. Nicole (have i told you how much i love getting letters addressed with my future last name?)
^spoils from Kat: not only did she send me a handful of amazing postcards (spot my Elvis?!), film slides, an antique hanger that will hold photostrips/postcards/etc (and will hang on our christmas tree this year!), knee high socks (my autumn essential), and a hello kitty pocket notebook... she sent me "thank-you" letters to pass along to my brother from the girls she teaches sunday school to. I held them to my heart, they meant so much to me. I sent them out to him today and it was SO NICE to not address it to Iraq. I'm so glad he's home. A HUGE heartfelt thank-you to sweet Kat xoxo
