When I got home from work Monday evening, this box was sitting on the kitchen table. My hubby looked a bit surprised as he told me I had a package that was delivered, then he asked "have you ordered something?" I grinned and told him "nope", but that I knew what it was.
So I opened the box and found this envelope with my name on it, and a business card. I was so excited to see the card, and what was written with in.
The card is lovely. I couldn't help but wonder if she had any idea just how much I love butterfly's? What was written on the inside was so sweet, so lovely, so encouraging and private. I was so touched by the card, her sentiments so lovingly written inside.
Found inside the box, wrapped in protective paper, was this adorable red mug with black trim around the top, and it was all wrapped in plastic and gently held closed at the top with a creamy tan and pine green ribbon. At this time my excitement was really growing. I felt like a kid at Christmas...seriously!
As I unwrapped this adorable mug, the wonderful aroma of Chocolate floated upwards towards me. I couldn't help but to hurriedly lift it to my nose and take a big sniff. Man oh man...it smells just like "Hot Chocolate"!!! Amazing. Notice the cute little "marshmallows" on top? Oh how cute is that? VERY!
So here is a picture of all that was inside that little box from Quarryville PA., and my sweet friend
You really should go by and spend some time relaxing there. Not only is Becky ever so talented at making homemade soy candles which are lovely and BEYOND aromatically pleasing, but she takes some of the loveliest picture's, especially of nature, gardens, flowers, trees and much more, along with sharing about so much of her life, her faith, her church, and her family. Becky has her own candle company called "Good Neighbor's Candle Co". Click on that link and go see all the wondrous candles she hand makes. You will be in love.
Sweet Becky...Thank You so very much!
I adore chocolate and candles, and you have so lovingly combined two of my favorite things. You are wonderful! Bet you had absolutely no idea, but my kitchen...is decorated in country red just like this lovely mug. I have apples and chickens all over my kitchen to boot. My curtains are a light creamy tan and country reddish wine color...just like the mug, but they are a checker board pattern just like the creamy tan and pine colored ribbon. So...how did you know? Because this chocolate filled candle in the red mug and creamy tan and pine ribbon is PERFECT for my kitchen decor.
YOU TOTALLY ROCK! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's funny how something like a personalized gift, which was so thoughtfully and lovingly made just for you, can touch one's heart. I have never had the pleasure of meeting Becky in person, but I have come to know her, adore her and love her via our blog's and the internet, as I have many others (such as Mrs. Rabe. & so many, many more) I cannot fully express my joy, my thankfullness and how happy this Hot Chocolate candle mug has made me. Such thoughtfullnes from a friend so far away. My sweet Lord seems to use unusual ways to continually let me know...I Am Loved. Not just by him, but by many! Precious...so precious! A wonderful gift sent from a wonderful lady, and even the littlest detail of coloring of ribbons, and coloring and style of a mug which ever so perfectly match my mixed up, country style, hodge podgely decorated little kitchen, this all means so much.
Well, I am home today, still sick, but not down nor discouraged.
Have A Peachy Keen Day!
Love & Prayers,
