From the Heart

I swear blog friends are the best!

We rally around one of our own when something happy or sad happens in their lives.  We promote each other in ways I never thought possible.  We inspire each other on a daily basis.  This community of design bloggers is amazing.

A few weeks ago I got a package in the mail.  A big box with FRAGILE written all over the side.  I opened it up to find a surprise that I fell in love with at first sight

There he is, peeking out from behind the console

To my amazement three of my best blogger friends got together and sent me this perfect wedding present!  I cried, I laughed, I was so touched that these ladies would think of me during such a happy time in my life.

Lauren  from Pure Style Home, Camila from Effortless Style, and Marianne from Haven and Home I love you three so much- thank you from the bottom of my (and my hubbys) heart!!

His new home is right next to the TV console wine rack

Trunks up! 

(Just like Patricia always tells me, check out this post to see why I love her too)


He will always be watching over me and forever remind me of 3 ladies that I call my friends!

Thank you Lauren, Camila and Marianne!!!

I hope one day I get to meet some of my blog aquaintances and we're able to become friends.

Such a neat connection!
