So, today is normally a day I try to work from home - store projects, ordering, financials, etc., while rotating laundry and other miscellaneous household chores. Perfect day to wear my yoga pants and a t-shirt, hair in a ponytail. Then, Lorelei called and it was like the Tasmanian Devil had hit KPS!!
She was so excited and now I know why:
Basic Grey's Marrakechand Porcelaincollections have arrived!! We also got 4 other boxes full of stuff in, it's all just as exciting, but it would take me forever to enter it all here. Anyway, my Monday chores went out the window and I'm here at KPS oooh'ing and awwww'ing over the treasures. This is my most favorite time of year - when CHA products start arriving!!!
Back when we were dating (28+ years ago), John was always giving me sweet little gifts, just little tokens of his affections. After we were married and starting our family, even though money was tight, he found ways to continue giving me 'tokens'. If he had $10 in his wallet, he'd get me a little something to let me know I was on his mind. Funny, after so long you'd think I'd take it for granted, but I never do, he always catches me off guard.
He did it again, the man who "doesn't scrapbook" put together this gift for me:
It's a shadow box with photos from our beginning. He including a copy of a "Happy Ad" he put in the local newspaper (bottom left), and an 8-track soundtrack from the movie Endless Love (it's our song, plus we saw the movie while we were on our honeymoon), he found it on E-bay. He finished it off with "my love" rhinestones on the glass. The only help he asked for was to get 3-D pop dots from my mom!
So, after I finished wiping my tears and hugging him. I asked him where he got the photos. He said he got them out of our albums. Sigh...
