brwhat's one way to feel old? go watch one of your husband's all male basketball games and sit with the wives/girlfriends while working on a needlepoint rug. :) i went to one of jordan's games last night and despite feeling old it was fun to watch him and the other super nice teachers but on their serious game faces and play. it's funny how a person who is so gentle and laid back can transform into an aggressive ball player.
besides being a cheerleader yesterday, i was also a little girl on christmas morning. or at least that's how i felt when i received four packages in one day, two of which were complete surprises. (perhaps they all know the 12th is the anniversary of my first date with jordan?)
the incredibly whimsical and funny and sweet vanessa sent me a most beautifully wrapped parcel. love the dress. love the striped tights. love the tea theme.
and inside? treasures i can wear to my next tea party! i am totally in love with the little purse...thank you vanessa for adding a little sparkle to my life! i'm already planning my next package for you.
these photos do not capture the awesomeness of julie's wall jewelry. the texture is amazing and when i look at it hanging on our bedroom wall it seems to be some sort of lucky amulet from another time. thank you for the wonderful surprise julie! (i've heard other bloggers mention finding a long lost twin among their blogging friends. julie is more like the female version of jordan. how great is that?)
a most delicious smelling soap arrived all the way from norway. britt-arnhild surprised me with this lovely handmade treat. the packaging is as beautiful as the soap. thank you britt!
little treats also arrived from yael frankel. yael lives in buenos aires and her creativity makes me excited for my trip there in april. it seems like a city bubbling with creative juices.
while it didn't arrive yesterday, the arrival of marieke's package also felt like a special occasion. the terrible photo of her print does it no justice. it is stunning in person. thank you marieke! i even like the blue envelope. (why are european stationary supplies so much better than what we can get in the states? or ecuador?)
thanks again all of you sweet package-sending friends! you brighten my days.
