i was greeted w/ a couple terrific postcards, and also the pressies i was waiting for to send off to a couple other ppl. : )
fun book by an awesome author, BJ Daniels is one of my all time favorites! : )
lovely, yes? : )
along w/ those dear things, there was a key... "why would there be a key? i'm not expecting anything big..." completely had forgotten a conversation i had w/ marz a couple days ago!
this is what awaited me - notice the beautiful turtles decorating the package?
i cut them out & will put them in my postcard album. : )
this was my face when i pulled it out of the mailbox (not the best photo of me, but pretty accurate to how excited i was!):
and i kept getting more excited as i opened the box!
on top, a ziploc w/ beautiful crocheted doilies and butterfly magnets made for me by marz's mama. i lllllove them all! the green one reminds me of my darling sea, and sea turtles. : )
GORGEOUS! marz, your mama is UBER talented, and please give her a biiiiiig hug and thank you from me!
the presents didn't even end there, tho! there was a fabulous monogrammed card, and inside a most fun letter. i love letters! you'd never guess, right? lol
she drew a turtle! awww! : )
after i'd read the letter, i unwrapped the bottom of the package to discover...
bliss!!! isn't he cute? i'm naming him Marzello. : )
so, THANK YOU, dear marianne! you ROCK and i'm so happy to call you friend. (i was happy to call you friend before the presents, too, but you knew that!) : )
i'm very blessed to count you all as friends, you spoil me with unexpected presents (SMK ring a bell?*wink*) and letters, phone calls and photos and bloggy blogs. thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to share a little bit of mine. i appreciate you. i love you! (and Jesus loves you, too, which is way more important.)
