Have you ever made a new friend and it feels like you've known each other forever? Let me tell you about my friend Tina. We met online less than a year ago, but I know that when we meet in person someday (hopefully soon!), we are going to have such fun hanging out together. She always makes me smile, well, actually laugh out loud! She has a wonderful sense of humor!
I got a surprise in the mail this week.
Tina sent me this beautiful cornicopia pumpkin lantern, along with the pretty fall leaves and vegetables. I love how the lantern looks all lit up.
She also sent me a sweet wren teatowel (she knows I love birds!), three books for me to read to the girls and Benjamin. We read Henry Huggins earlier this year and loved it. She sent the sequel and also two books about Ramona, the neighbor girl, two postcard art books for our schoolwork, a pumpkin cookie candle that smells amazing, fall leaf post-its, pens and candy. Well, the candy is all gone. ;0) There is one lonely wrapper in the dish!
One of my favorite gifts is the cute pumpkin teacup. Tina got one for herself too so we can be reminded of each other while we drink tea. :0) I have already enjoyed a cup of "Constant Comment" in mine!
Speaking of Tina's wonderful sense of humor, she sent three more special things. Can you spot them in the photo? Hehehe. Grace, Emily and Benjamin say "Thank you Miss Tina! We love our new teeth!"
Thank you so much for the wonderful gifts, Tina! I love everything and you really made my day! You are such a thoughtful friend and I am so thankful to have met you!
