|Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. ~James Matthew Barrie|
Sometimes in this huge universe of blogs, you meet someone who you SO WISHED lived closer. Just so you could drop into Starbucks for a cup of coffee, or shop Target together and see who spends more! I have "met" several people in Blogdom that I would be so tickled pink to have as a real life neighbor and a friend. One of those people is Maria from Dreamy Whites . She is always a positive poster and she just oozes inspiration. Her house looks like you'd walk in and never want to leave.
Friday, I received a package in the mail. Of course those pesky kids of mine wanted to open it for me. (I didn't let them. Yeah, I'm mean like that!) How often does someone like me great a surprise?! I was not sharing my package opening glee with them. As I opened the box, the soothing aroma of lavender filled the room. (OH, I almost forgot, I ran it outback to snap a few photos, and yes, my children think I'm crazy) I received from Maria, the SWEETEST little bottle with just a blush of lavender color to it, a fragrant bunch of dried lavender, and an INCREDIBLE bitty pillow filled with lavender. She made the pillow from an antique feed sack and I can't stop smelling it! It's DIVINE! The last little tissue covered mystery awaited. As I opened it, the clean and lovely scent of lavender once again thrilled my nose. It was a CHUNK of homemade lavender soap!
Maria made my weekend and I am so touched by her RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS! She is such a sweet girl and I believe she's soon opening an little store. If she carries any of these AWESOME goodies, she's going to totally ROCK IT!
Thank you Maria, I heart you!
