The Man came in from the mailbox not long ago and handed me an envelope addressed to me. I love it when that happens. Do you get as excited about receiving personal mail as I do? It's right up there with chocolate, people.
Inside was a wonderful surprise. My lovely friend Kelley had written to me some time ago and asked me to send her a photo of the boarding side of Cloud Nine. (You may know that The Man and I named our RV Cloud Nine, as we always feel as if we're on Cloud Nine whenever we climb aboard.)
Kelley didn't say why she wanted the photo, but I assumed she had something up her sleeve. She can be sneaky like that.
Would you just look at what I found inside the package! I couldn't help myself. I broke out into a smile that went on forever. Kelley is not only C-R-E-A-T-I-V-E, but she is creative in a major way.
I swiped these pictures from her blog, because, well, they are just perfect.
As you can see, Kelley's work is flawless.
That awesome little heart over the "i" is my favorite thing.
If you click here, you can read the delightful story of where this little piece went in the wide world before Kelley finished it and mailed it to me.
Thank you, dear friend! You made me and The Man smile, and we won't celebrate another Christmas without remembering your kindness.
To have someone take the time to create such a special gift, and send it to me by mail, makes me realize how blessed I am to be acquainted with dear people like Kelley. (I also swiped this photo of her and her husband. Aren't they the cutest couple? They've been married like three decades.)
If you've not visited Kelley's blog, you will find it a unique space, filled not only with fun, but a host of heartwarming and thought-provoking writing. Tell her I sent you.
Until next time, dear peeps, may your weekend be filled with the joy of friends, be they near or far.
