From the Other Side of the Pond...

How is it, that right when you are having a "flat" day, somehow, somewhere, someone knows (well, maybe a bit ahead of time) that you need a bit of a pick-me-up? That was the case one week ago. Flat day. No energy. Feeling just a bit awkward and bulgy (translate: VERY pregnant). And the kids were being, well, 4 and 2 respectively.

So when the parcel delivery guy comes running down our driveway with a box that says "Hello from the United States!" I got really excited. I love it that I have friends on the other side of the big blue pond. Friends that, even though I have never met them, know how to speak to my heart.

And something to bless our soon-to-be here baby. Not only was the gift beautifully wrapped, it is beautiful itself, and I can't wait to use it (OK, well I can wait for the baby to get here... but I think the blanket will have to be used as soon as possible... maybe on the ride home from hospital! :) )
I am completely blessed.

Jana, Thank you. From the bottom of my heart.

  3. Well Hello, I have just found your blog via the 'Beetle Shack' I love waht you are doing and what you are posting. I am passionate about designing and making vintage inspired childrens clothing, and doing a bit of crochet and knitting. I am also doing a fibro beach shack renovation. It's been such fun. I instantly loved the name of your blog because I love the water and the beach. I hope you pop on over to my blog and say hi. x Roberta I am now following your blog.

  4. Oh gosh, I think I am having a bit of a flat day today! No sign of the postman though :( Love the beautiful blanket and the packaging was very pretty too!

  5. It's amazing it? I love connection we can have with people we have never met and may never meet, but that know us so well!

  6. I know exactly how you feel! What a great little pick-me-up to receive in the mail. I didn't know you were pregnant, so congratulations on your soon to be newest bundle of joy. :-)

    Take care,
