Surprises in the mail!

I hope everyone had a special Valentine’s Day. Mine was nice and I felt extra special when the mailman brought me surprises.

Shelley sent me a Valentine and a sweet little crochet heart that she made. Shelly, from Simply Shelley was one of my very first followers and friends when I started my blog. It’s been fun to get to know her and become good friends over the years. Thank you sweet Shelley!

I also got a big package packed full of goodies from Noelle, the dreamer. Her blog is Live and Dream a little Dream and I won her 5 year blogging anniversary giveaway. She and I both love the many of the same books and movies and have become good friends this past year. We are both dreamers and kindred spirits.

And here’s a close up of the plaque. Won’t it look pretty in my lanai?

I was tickled to get all of these cute things that will come in handy. Isn’t the packaging sweet?

A pretty kitchen towel, sweet note and Vanilla cream…all the things I love! Thank you Noelle!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Any special plans?

We hope to go for a hike today!

Such sweet surprises and packages! We're going out to dinner tonight at a local diner (the "only" diner in town - lol). But they always put on a really nice dinner for Valentine's Day. And it's also our 27th Anniversary on Monday, so it's a "two-fer". Have a great weekend.

I echo everyone else's sentiments! You are so lucky to win such lovely things, but there is no one as deserving as you.

I had my surgery yesterday so I can't say my Valentines Day was very special, but all went well and now I'm just taking my happy pills and resting :).
