A Special Gift

Look at this wonderful package I received in the mail. A little bird told me it was on it's way and would be a way to keep Abby close to my heart until I had her in my arms. It came from these two wonderful people!



I opened it up to find this beautiful necklace. I love it! Thank you so much Julie and Tess :) I will wear this every day. Thank you for being so sweet and thoughtful and Thank you for letting me follow your journey to each other. I truly hope Abby and I are able to meet you two in person one day!

This last picture is of my first fire of the season. It's 40 degrees out (never mind that it was 78 degrees two days ago for Thanksgiving) and I still haven't turned on my heat yet. not when this crazy Virginia weather is so wishey washy :)

Such a thoughtful gift, I have been absent in writing, but not in reading, but I hold you and Abby in my heart and share with everyone. I am still waiting for the right outfit to hit me for crocheting but it will.From Bama's I have a box of letters your mom wrote when you and sibs were little, I am saving it for her, what little I read, I think it is a neat time for connecting with that time of your life as you begin a new time of your life now, Love Daisy

Julie is such a thoughtful gem!

Lovely fire! I had a chuckle when I read your temp - coz 40 degrees here is stinking hot!!! (celcius of course!) I think we're hitting about 36 degreesC today (I think thats around the 100F mark?!)

Stay warm... I will be!

I love how you have Abby's photos already out in frames (we did the same thing with Francesca's referral photos as well). I hope you are finding out some much needed info regarding Yihuang SWI and I did noice that you joined the yahoo group (which is so helpful).

BTW...where in Virginia are you at? We have a place in Manassas that my hubby stays at during the week while working in DC.
