About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Brought me to Tears..

 I had the most *wonderful* mail delivery on Friday.  My mailbox was overflowing with love and it wasn't even Valentine's Day yet!  I was so touched by the thoughtfulness from my dear friends that I started to cry.  Honestly, I never dreamed that people I have not "officially" met could make me feel so loved.  These are the same ladies-  very, very special friends- that I think about every day as if they lived next door to me.  I know them better than I know my true neighbors!  Thank you- all of you- who leave lovely comments and e-mails.  I love all of you- my dear, kind friends.
   My darling friend, Jes, sent me a package of *birdie* love and more!  There were chocolates...
  The SWEETEST tags...
   Goodies from Bath and Body Works...

   And the sweetest little red bird in her very own beautiful nest!   Thank you so much, Jes!  

   

   Then, I got a heavy, heavy package of book love from my sweet friend, Heather
   She sent me the loveliest red frame from Pottery Barn and a huge pack of Red Vines licorice- my favorite!


   And look at all the BOOKS!  She knows how much I love to read and I WISH we lived closer so we could form a book club- sigh...  Thank you so much, Heather!

   Look what my Big Sis, Robin, sent to me...  Oh my Goodness!  See's Candy!!  She sent a package for me and one for each of my girls!  Robin- Thank you so much!  We are loving every single bite- YUM!

I am so happy for you! :) What wonderful surprises!

Why can't you have a book club online?

The main difference would be that you discuss the books via the written word as opposed to dialogue in person. :)
