Wow, what a nice surprise!

I went out to get the mail and found a box on my front steps. This was a HUGE surprise, since it came from my 'Favorite Things Swap' partner. Why the surprise? Well, somehow the e-mail about her went into my spam file and then cyber oblivion. I never even knew I'd been paired up (my original e-mail to Kelly, the hostess, was lost)! Imagine having a crummy day where all you want to do is snooze, and finding this:

All kinds of packages wrapped in polka dot paper, tied with string! I opened these to find:

A great little "To Do" list, magnetized to put on my fridge. It's divided by days!

A wonderful little book titled "Look What Love Has Done"--subtitled "Five Minute Messages to Lift Your Spirit." Boy, do I need this today.

An awesome canvas shopping bag that says "Eco Chic" on it. I'm not very chic...but I try to be eco...this bag is going to get a lot of use!

The cutest stationary with a floral print, in a windowed box tied shut with cord.

And a cute box with daisies on it filled with...LINDT CHOCOLATES!!!! on earth did my wonderful partner, Jen, know how much I need good chocolate today???? What a mind reader! What a woman!

You have totally made my day, Jen. I'm sorry I didn't know about you, and will shop for you this weekend. Watch for your box next week! I hope I can make you smile as you've made me smile.

What a wonderful surprise you received. I'm glad it lifted your spirits and hope that you are feeling much better.
Just to let you know, I will be posting about my award next week. I haven't forgotten...just need to decide who to give the awards to.
Happy 4th of July!
