I have a heart full of love and a fridge full of antibiotics. Ah, February. But as I was gently reminded
yesterday, it is high time I wrote about my Crappy Day Present from the one, the only, SuperJules
Let's go back to, um, mid-December, shall we? To a time when I was losing my mind and a CDP arrived in the mail for ME. ME ME ME. The only unwrapped item was a container of Jules's dairy-free Candied Maple Walnuts
. I saw those and burst into tears. (Told you I was emotional.) What a thoughtful gift. Especially as it was the time of year when every day brought more food-type goodies that Katherine couldn't eat. You need to make these, by the way. They are so GOOD.
Yes, the image is sideways. It's taken me this long to post--let's not get hung up on details.
Look at all the gifties! In my dimly-lit dining room!
I decided that since the walnuts were for everyone, I could open one more gift the same day. Pretty pretty salad utensils! No more will I serve salad with
rusty barbecue tongs!
Then I did kind of a twelve days of Christmas for ME thing where I opened one gift a day to get me through December. It worked, too. Hence, the same red tablecloth in every photo.
Pretty pretty wallet! And for Christmas, my mom gave me a little contact case holder that matches the wallet but is pink! So coordinated!
Pretty green clothespins! I still haven't opened them! I want to use them for a kids' artwork display area.
SQUEE! BENTO CUTTERS! When you pack lunches for your allergic child every day, this excites you! I have wanted these for so long!
Cool flippy bag that now lives in my purse! Doubles as ball for bored toddler!
I swear Jules wrote about these bags somewhere on her blog, but I cannot find the link.
Beautiful scarf in my favorite shade of dark pink! This photo is horrific--trust me, it's pretty.
Socks without holes!
An upside down photo! Focus! It's a COUPON HOLDER! This also lives in my purse! I LOOVE it. I LURVE it. It makes me happy every day.
More socks! Back off, preteen daughter! These are Mommy's!
So, you can see just a glimpse how thoughtful and wonderful Jules is and why I love her from afar. Thank you, Julia.
