Do you remember back in the early days of blogging, some 16+ years ago, when we used to send each other little gifts and packages in the mail? Sometimes it was an organized event where we would inquire about favorites and then get matched with someone. And sometimes it was just a surprise. It was fun! And we don’t do it anymore. I mean, I think we don’t do it anymore. Maybe all y’all are out there swapping gifts and not telling me.
In any case, I came home yesterday to a package from Vicki! It brought me right back to the blogging days of old. I had completely forgotten that I left the 30,000th comment on her blog a while back and she sent me a sweet little thank you prize.
In the box was a nice big mug, a leather measuring tape key ring, a lovely little box of chocolates, and a wonderful note. Truthfully, the note might have been my favorite part, reinforcing the idea that we need to write to each other and enforce that connection.
Thank you, Vicki for the goodies, for taking the time to send them to me, and for your steadfast and continual blogging. Your voice matters to our community and I’m so glad you’re here. You were a true role model to me back in those early days and I appreciate all you’ve done to connect this community.
In other news, I’m knitting socks. I can’t explain this, honestly, after confessing about the big old bag of socks I have to deal with but here I am anyway. They are pink, like Bonny’s current hitchhiker and Juliann’s current quilting. I’m declaring pink the color of 2021, despite what Pantone says.
Have a great Wednesday!
