Surprise Gift from Across the World


My dear Bloggy Pal NollyPosh completely surprised me by sending this wonderful package from across the world (she lives in Australia). It arrived on Christmas Eve too, how perfect was that? I was so excited to step offline so to speak... inside it was a handmade ornament and card. Both were beautiful. More importantly, I was holding something in my hands instead of looking at a picture of other things she'd made on her blog. While we do go a long way to represent things for eachother with pictures and little movies, it made me realize that while they add to what we could convey with only words, they still don't quite capture the real thing entirely.

Thank you NollyPosh, for putting love into everything you do, and for being so generous with me. You are the first person to write and ask if you could list my blog on your side bar. I was thrilled and it opened up a whole new world to me in terms of what I'd been doing with my blog before that.

Happy Birthday Sydney... I agree with donna who said we can't say it enough.

What a nice thing to receive from someone on the other side of our planet. You have been blessed, but you deserve it.

You are an inspiration to us all.

Love and hugs!
