linking up with Sar over at [life of love] for today’s post
i’m really thankful for all the friends i’ve met through blogging. and yes, i do consider them friends. as lifestyle bloggers, we share a ton of personal things in our posts & on some occasions share even more via email or facebook. although we might be thousands of miles away we still share many laughs + memories, confide in each other, and turn to one another for comfort, advice, or to get the truth, even when it’s hard to hear. sure, many of us haven’t met in “real life” but that doesn’t mean we aren’t friends. so, thank you, my modern pen pals (+ those who i have had the pleasure of meeting in “real life” ) – i truly appreciate you and our friendship! :)
i’m excited for a certain-someone’s birthday present to arrive next week. as i mentioned, mr.c’s fam is coming up for a visit and while they’re here we’ll be celebrating sister A’s 16th birthday. and i’m fairly certain i’ve found the perfect gift. honestly, i think it’s one of best feelings – when you search around, have that sudden inspiration, and walk away knowing that this item or experience is “the one”. now the waiting begins….thrilled to see what she thinks!
i am always a little disappointed because it seems like i keep missing out on all the cool swaps that have been happening in blog land. so imagine how happy i was finally catch one! i’ll be participating in a coffee mug swap hosted by Susan of Suzels Says. can’t wait to see what kind of mug i get! p.s. click here to find out how to join in the fun – it’s going on until the end of April.
