I love surprises!

These gorgeous blooms showed up at my shop on Tuesday and boy was I surprised! I mean, come on, what gal doesn't like a good lookin' bunch of smelly goods in a vase? Now, these were not just ordinary flowers, they were PERFECT flowers. I'm telling you, not a petal was broken, discolored, out of place, etc. The vase was crystal clear, filled with what looked to be purified water. The blooms were a bright white with perfectly round yellow centers. Like, the kind of perfect flower that looks fake, you get the picture!

So, as I read the enclosed card, my mouth drops to the floor. "Seriously", I say aloud, "Seriously, you have got to be kidding. That girl, she is an amazing friend (my hands fall to my side with card still in hand). I can't believe she thinks this much of me. What a surprise, what a sweet surprise. Oh, wow!" Then, I took a breath and repeated everything at least 5 or six more times. I was amazed, truly overwhelmed by the love of a friend.

Kris, I owe you a million and one thanks, a bear hug and a pinky swear that officiates our friendship bond from now to eternity - LOL . You made my day, my week, my year! More than words could ever express, you are a true friend and I appreciate your kindness so much. Thank you :)

For those of you who may not know Kris, she is one of the best ladies around. If you need advice, she's got it. If you need a friend, she's there. If you need to be encouraged, she's willing to help. If you need a joke, she's got one waiting. If you need to get crafty, she's got the goods...the talent, the skill, the success, the helping hand. Check her out at her website, and over at her blog. You'll be glad you did!

Thanks again Kris, you're such an awesome lady!

Oh my goodness, Heather. You are just too good to me. Thank you for sharing such nice things. I loved being able to see the flowers. It's kind of nerve-wracking ordering online and hoping that all goes well from point A to point B! :) Thank you, thank you for such a thoughtful post. You're awesome and I'm so glad you enjoyed the flowers.
