|How beautiful are these women??|
The out-pour of love and support from this group (really before I was "one of them") has been earth altering to me. I know people say that. And most people mean it. I don't mean it in a "I wasn't loved enough as a child so now I have internet friends" (because I was loved plenty, still am). But I feel like this is more than a group of just "internet friends". They baked for me before I really knew them. And the friendship has grown from there. Just a couple of strangers. Tweeting each other, reading a few blogs, then last year the first OKMH started and it was the first event of "more than just internet friends". I had a whole year of reading up on what the lovelies sent each other - so let me tell you that the pressure was ON! And then Jeanne sent me a box that was more "me" than even what I could have told someone to pack for me. The theme was Winter Essentials and she went above and beyond! Wanna see??
This is the first face I saw when I picked the box up. The lid was COVERED in mustaches. I knew it would get better inside. Also - how maniacal is that baby?? I practically couldn't drive back to our apartment what with being so giddy.
|My first peek inside!|
|This screams Texas winter to me.|
|With notes on the back!! I die.|
|Awesome shirt and cutie-patootie socks|
|I changed my outfit immediately to accommodate.|
|Homemade matching neck wrap and infinity scarf|
|Wearing both. Also immediately.|
|I am Godzilla.|
|Someone sent this to from the interwebs. It is perfect in every way.|
|All the loot!|
I know I've said it to her a few times over, but let it be written here in internet history - thank you SO much, Jeanne!!
