Some Fun New Gifts

I can’t deny it. I love presents and gifts. The unexpected ones are the ones I like best too. Today, I got not one, but two fabulous gifts from two different friends. One is a belated Christmas gift from my best friend Andrea, out in CA, and the other one was a fabulously fun gift from my friend Katelyn. Both are so very much appreciated and will definitely be put to deliciously good use. 🙂

My dear friend Andrea and I go way, way, way back and have known each other our whole lives. We have been through it all together; lots and lots of good times, and unfortunately a few sad times as well, but we have always been there to support each other and that will never change. This morning, as I was leaving for church, I noticed a big box out on the front porch. I brought it in and then had to run. I didn’t get a chance to open it until after I returned home. When I did open the box, I was totally amazed at what was inside. There were four absolutely gorgeous, iridescent champagne flutes. I can’t wait to properly try them out and initiate them with some good bubbly to celebrate more good times.

!Te amo mucho Chica!

But the fun and excitement didn’t end there. Everyone knows how much I love to cook. No secrets there, right?! 🙂 My friend Katelyn gave me a delicious box of spices today too. There are great spices used for a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern foods, and I use them all the time. I think I see some more Indian and/or Middle Eastern foods coming my way in the very near future. WHOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!

HMMMMM!!!! I think champagne and Indian foods go well together. But I just might have to do a little research to be sure. 🙂 Thank you both Andrea and Katelyn for your love, friendship and generosity. I am a very lucky girl indeed.

Make everyday special. Every day is a gift. And the gifts of love and friendship are the best gifts anyone can ever have. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. “Til next time.
