Feelin' the Love


I received the sweetest surprise in the mail last week.  The very lovely Bethany made an offer on Valentines Day to send a little something to anyone who was having a not so great day.  I spoke up thinking it would be nice to look forward to picking up the mail for a few days.  I had no idea what a beautiful and thoughtful package was headed my way.


Bethany created a gorgeous gift - from the personalized, sparkling J on the front, to the beautiful flower pin.  The postcards inside are perfect for a dedicated reader like me - and then there was the delicious chocolate.


I'm not sure what inspire Bethany to share her talents and gifts with near strangers, but she made my week and made up for a less than great Valentine's day.

While we are on the subject of love, I fell head over heals for a new song this weekend.  To the point that I put it on repeat and listened to it over and over again for more than an hour.  I think the idea of going nowhere fast was the perfect theme for my lazy weekend.
