a few weeks back i got really sweet email from a reader from australia. she wanted to send me a gift! for no reason! ummm, let me think about it… ok! we received our wonderful gifts today in the mail, and i tore into them as quickly as i could get them out of the mail lady’s hands. here’s what i was greeted with:
and this cute little hat for me will be perfect next summer since my current summer hat is super old and faded. its made by an australian company called west. jessica, when i visited there about 15 years ago there was a surf company there called hot buttered. is it still around? gotta love the name!
and last of all was my favorite gift of all. this magazine is like the australia version of martha stewart kids. its freakin’ awesome! seriously, i am going to spend so much time pouring over this magazine, dog-earing every page. just the cover is enough to drool over: look at the ruffled sweater on the cover model, then look again at her incredible pleated top. oh, and the giant ice cream sandwich cake! crazy inspiring, i tell you!
so, thank you, jessica! this was such a treat, and i feel so honored that you did this all for me and my family! i’m still in shock that she did this just because, and i’m reminded of how wonderful this blogging community is once again. thank you!
