Good Friends.

So, the other day, I got a package (my second) in the mail from the United States! It was from some of my good friends, living far away.

There were four things in the box:  1. A card,  2. A scarf,  3. A necklace, and  4. A framed list entitled  “30 Things We Love About [Lovely Light]”. 

The necklace- so thoughtful, with my wedding colors

The scarf.

The list. So creative and accurate!

It was the nicest thing that anyone (besides the hubby) has done for me since moving here! It totally brought tears to my eyes. Thank you to everyone who had input into the package! It means so much and will not be forgotten.

Song of the Post: American Boy as sung by Afro Blue.  Again, one of my friends is participating in The Sing Off on NBC.  Here is their performance from round two…
