Surprise Pen Pal!

Don't you love getting mail when your not expecting it?
Today was one of those days. I got home and I had 2 packages waiting for me in my mailbox!
One of them was from my good friend Jamie, I am so glad that we are friends. She is such a sweet down to earth girl, and a great mother. 
A while ago I mentioned wanting to be pen pals(or maybe she did?) Anyways we never set anything up but she being the sweetheart that she is, decided to send me a little something in the mail. I am so excited to start sending her mail on a regular basis!!
I find that whenever I am expecting a package or a letter that it makes life all the more exciting. Don't you? 
She sent me this awesome button necklace, along with the sweetest card!
I love all of my friends I have met through this blog. Never in a million years did I ever think blogging could introduce me to new friends whom I find very kind and inspirational! 
***
The other package I received was from a giveaway that I won over at My Owl Barn.
I was so excited when I found out I had won!
Here is what they sent:
Look how cute that wrapping is! The little bird is a card, that she used a type writer to write a little note
 This little guy is a pillow that is most certainly going on my couch! It is about 16X12" and super cute!
She also sent this little heart filled with lavender. I'm not 100% sure of its purpose but if you put it in a drawer or with your clothes it makes the drawer smell nice♥
The giveaway was hosted by Zeena Shah She has super cute stuff!

Today I read on the blog The Curious Pug that their little pug Cyrus Passed away. This broke my heart and I have to admit, I cried a little. Just thinking about my puppies and their lives  makes my heart feel heavy. My heart goes out to her and her husband. It's times like this that make me feel grateful for my dogs, and I just wanted to snuggle them all night and never let them go. Pets are so amazing, their unconditional love for you no matter what. They are so trusting and they rely so heavily on us their owners for food and water. (&love) 
Life moves so quickly sometimes, I was reminded of that today and I want to try to be a better wife, and mother to my furry children. As well as trying to branch out and appreciate every day things.
Sammie loves Aaron. 
 Oscar always makes a funny face when Aaron is petting him ♥
I hope everyone has a great Friday!

I always get super excited when I know something's coming in the mail. It really puts your patience to the test though:P
This morning I got True Blood Season 1 delivered to my house and even though I myself had ordered it last night, I was still excited:)

Congrats on winning that lovely giveaway!

hi heidi! getting unexpected mail is always the best feeling. and jamie is so sweet! all you girls i met through blogger are amazingly sweet. i really had no idea it would be like this and that i could make friends. that makes me smile. also, that owl pillow! gah! it would look perfect on your couch or anywhere really. it's awesome.

and i haven't read the curious pug's entry yet but that just made me really sad too. pet's are truly a part of the family and i hate thinking about the future without them. they are so special.

i hope you have a great weekend:)
p.s. i'll be sending out the swap on monday. sorry it's taking me a while!

Amylou said...

Aww! Jamie is so sweet! Heidi we should totally be pen pals too. I only get junk mail ever. Sad.

Love that little owl pillow! Gosh it's cute.

I cried too. I got so sad and showed the picture to Steven too. It scares me because I didn't know that about pugs and Lily is part pug. I felt like my heart broke in two peices. Dogs are such blessings.

Eva said...

I love getting mail, but I don't get it that often. I do know I should be getting a tea invitation from a friend in the mail soon. I am really looking forward to it.

I cried too when I read her post. I picked up my cat Pumpkin, who I have had since I was 8, and cuddled her. It made me so sad.

With Love, Jamie said...

Aww Heidi! Your the sweetest, friend :) :) :)
And that owl pillow is so freakin' cute!! Lucky you! I totally want pillows like that for my couch too!

With Love, Jamie said...

Saving Capulet said...

ever since I got myself in to blogging I have had the privileged of receiving unexpected mails or packages and it's just the best feeling in the world!

Breeanna @ a brilliant melody said...

I have a pen pal that I got connected to from another blog. She did an address swap and now I have a new friend. It's really fun getting things in the mail, since I usually just get junk mail.

Unexpected mail is probably one of my favorite things ever. It warms my heart so much.
Jamie is the sweetest!

Getting mail is the BEST! the house i'm in right now, apparently has had a ton of turnover because we get mail daily that isn't for either of us... and i always get so excited when i see a weird letter [weird meaning you can tell it's not a bill.. or junk] then my heart sinks to my butt when i realize it's not for me.. or anyone around, for that matter!

but that owl pillow is sooooo cute! congratulations on winning!
