It was a day of surprises…….
A package I have been WAITING for for ages finally arrived! I participated in the annual Umber Dove foodie swap
….my trading partner being no less than Umber herself!….
……..the card inside said “may the beauty of the day lift up your spirits”….
signed in the lovely hand of one Kelly Clark, aka Umber Dove...“artist, seer, lover of deep woods and deeper water…..”
….garlic pickles, red plum jam, and clover honey from the west coast cousins of my sister’s bees!..
let me tell you, these goodies taste as good as they appear! The package had come a bit sooner, but I was saving it for a tasting party for a few days…
most importantly, these goodies came wrapped in friendship and love…
which little did I know, I was gonna need…..
as the universe apparently had different plans for my day!…this is what the rest of my summer looks like….I am not a superstitious person by any stretch of the imagination, but it happened on Friday, the 13th!….BROKEN……please, can I get an “awwww”?
I had the COOLEST peacock blue-green nail polish that I was planning to do my toes w/ too…
I am just so grateful it wasn’t my hand!
and I am STILL letting the beauty of the day lift my spirits..
now I have to let it, like it or not! 🙂
just in time
merci, merci, Kelly…I hope you enjoyed yours!
