Lo and behold, I get a call last week from another co-worker (and learned gardener !) to let me know she'd cut some of her hydrangeas for me dry . . . . . and these are foolproof, thank God ! So now I have lovely hydrangeas on my porch (above), and in an ironstone pitcher in our living room. What a sweet and beautiful gift !!!!!
Another reason to smile today . . . 5 months from now, Jack and I will be on one of these !
We had decided around the holidays last year to treat ourselves to a cruise for our 10th anniversary this year. We were aiming to go this November, but our plans got put on hold when one of my other front office co-workers got pregnant, and is due in November. After a trying and often dismal-feeling spring and summer, with no nice vacation in sight, we were finally able to book our getaway for January !!! YAY !!!!!! Let the countdown to the Caribbean begin . . . !
Very thankful today for gifts both small and large !!!!
