A few things

1. A huge thank you goes out to Gwen at Confessions of a Control Freak. I signed up for her snail mail (because I adore her) and she sent me the sweetest card as well as a beautiful cosmetic bag in my favorite colors of pink and green. She even had my name embroidered on it! I love anything customized. This was a very sweet gesture and I appreciate it so much. Gwen – I will be sending you something soon! I encourage others to do this type of thing too. It’s not about getting something, but it really does brighten your day when you check the mailbox and there is something other than bills and junk mail waiting for you. Even if you just send a little note, it can really make someone’s day. I don’t know about you, but I am all about making people smile.



2. Tomorrow I am off to sunny Orlando with my mom. Geof and I bought her this trip for Christmas and it’s finally here. She has always wanted to swim with the dolphins, so that is just what I’m taking her to do. We’re going to Discovery Cove and are so excited. Geof gets to stay home with the dogs (our dogs + my moms dog = chaos).

Geof is on dog duty with Happy, Mandy & Chase!



3. Grey’s Anatomy – what a tear jerker last night. I don’t want to spoil anything in case people haven’t seen it yet, but I was a crying mess. I must say that they’ve stepped it up this season.

I hope everyone has a happy Friday and a great weekend. I will probably check here and there from vacation, because I can’t stay away for too long!

Snail mail is so lovely. I really enjoy getting "real" mail, so rare anymore. Personalized stationary is one of my absolute favorite things.

BTW: Your hair turned out so great! GOrgeous!
