Letters from home are always so fun to read! We got our first envelope of letters a few weeks ago (one other envelope has been sent but never seen…) from Tim, Dana, Kerri, and Nikki. The girls, and, who are we kidding, Cam and I were SO excited!
Then the pictures took us back and made us remember, and there were stories told and giggles heard. My heart was full with the remembrance of what a blessed life we have lived. How were we the fortunate ones who got to live life with so many people we truly love?
A few days after the envelope arrived, the most beautiful box we have received arrived. Not only was it pink and covered in daisies, it had a note that said HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STEPHANIE. I mean, what else could be better?! 😉Inside, were gifts. Special gifts. An owl necklace to remind me of home, because our hearts will always partially belong to the home of the Owls (Joshua, TX). A Vera coffee cup with a note tucked inside to remind me of my favorite Kerri who knows my favorite things. Serendipity spices because the name is fun and because it is a throwback to Dana and all the things we love about her. Pankits because I am an awful pancake maker and Dana knows this. And because it reminds me of breakfast by the pool that I’m not sure we ever got to have. Heart post-its because the whole box was packed with love. It was the best belated birthday gift I could ever ask for, and I love the senders with all my heart!
