THANKS for all your well wishes for Collin’s two-year mission in Wellington New Zealand! Several of you live there and I’m thinking I might have to go pick up Collin in two years and host a big crop with you all! Anyone in?
Many of you asked where his friend, Ally, is going on her mission. It’s a place she and her family never imagined: Sofia Bulgaria! She knows fluent French but I don’t think that will help her learn Bulgarian! Here they are on the night they opened their mission calls.
Thanks, too, for all the well wishes for my birthday over a week ago.
Steve spoiled me with a dozen roses, colorful balloons and this adorable sign he made himself!
And, I’ve continued to be spoiled by family and friends!
Becky Higgins sent this unique e-card from SugarWish. You literally open the card and there are dozens of candy you can choose from to build your own box.
Within days after making your selection, the above box appears magically in your mailbox.
Here are the four candies I chose:
Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE CANDY! Pure yumminess! Thanks, BH! Oh and Ryan Gosling wrote this great quote: “Sometimes I think that the one thing I love most about being an adult is the right to buy candy wherever and whenever I want!”
Just had to show you this adorable wooden frame adorned with die-cut frames made by my pal, Michael Lazorchak:
Love how I can change my family’s photos through the year.
I got some really cool New Zealand books and missionary gear.
Two of my pals gave this New Zealand beanie to Collin:
And this bicycle pillow to me as a reminder that my son will soon be riding a bike for two years:
Thanks again to all my wonderful friends and family members for making this year’s birthday unforgettable. Wish I had a photo to share of each of you:
(Ya gotta love photos that are blurry and have an extra person in the background!)
Hope your week has started out great. Can’t wait to share some exciting news! Hopefully soon! (Can you guess what it is?)
