Made my day!

I haven't been feeling well, since Sunday. Before worship, I stated, "if I run off the stage, it's because I'm going to throw up and I don't want that on video!" Thankfully, I made it through the service, but I've been fighting whatever this is for a few days. I woke up this morning without a voice. Of course, the first thing I do is freak out and call Alex and try to tell him that I can't talk. This didn't work very well....since I CAN'T TALK. He finally suggested that we email, so that he can tell what I'm saying. He's a genius. :) I was bummed because I had to cancel home group for this evening...it was our turn to host. Needless to say, today didn't start out a fun day.

Then I received a knock on my door. I went to the door and there was a package on the doorstep. I was thinking it was something that I ordered off eBay (can't wait to show you guys that purchase!) but then I opened it and realized it was from my friend, Shannon! She sent me a thank you gift...how sweet is that!? I just had to show you these lovely things!

I LOVE this framed "A" picture...


It has already found a place front and center on a table of B&W photos. :)


She sent me a red dish towel (I'm constantly buying dish towels) and I've placed it as an accent behind one of my Valentine towels.


She also sent me this personalized soap...it smells so good, but it's almost too pretty to use!


Thank you, Shannon! You are such a sweetheart. If you're ever in The Rock, call me...we would make great shopping buddies! :)

You made my day!

I, too, LOVE the framed "A"!!!! I think a larger version of that (in a P, of course) would look great in my newly painted bedroom...do you know where you would find that?

Hope you are feeling better! :-)
