This past Thursday evening I arrived home, so very ready for a nap after just my second day back to work since the wreck. So what did I find at my door? A package!! The stickers let me know that this gift had come from quite a distance, but it was the stamp, that let me know I was in for a treat. Those of you fortunate to know and follow this blogger, will surely recognize the AQUA sneakers!
After opening the mailing bag, I found several beautifully wrapped treasures and I felt like a child on Christmas Eve! And similar to the tradition of Christmas Eve, I took myself off to bed to give my body the rest that it needed, savoring (and saving) the presents for the next morning.
As I opened each gift, I could not stop smiling! I’m not much of a crafty person, but I know how much work went into these gifts and that made them even more special.
How had Boomdee made this T-shirt? Six of my photographs, with the first part of the name of my blog, Life on the Bike, added to the motorcycle mirror in one of the photos. The six images are surrounded with the words that comprise the second part of the name of my blog, … And other fab things. I could not love this more!
I continued to open the gifts and found happiness in each one.
Just look at all of the intricate pieces …
… and this incredible homemade card (check out this link to Boomdee’s blog to learn how she did it!).
The Jeannette Walls quote was timely given recent events …
… and the words that Boomdee wrote meant much.
The Canadian Biker magazine was a perfect fit for me, because I WILL ride in Canada someday! Boomdee even remembered my cat, and believe me, Abby loved that catnip toy.
So why do we blog? To share our words, our photography, our passions, and our lives, of course.
Why do we keep on blogging? For the friendships and the connections and the love.
Previously I said that I was like a child at Christmas … but really, it’s all about Thanksgiving, my most favorite holiday.
Thank you Boomdee, for this wonderful gift and for sharing your remarkable talents with me.
