Secret Talents

So apparently Daniel has a secret creative side, which he neglected to tell me about.

(If you're new around here, this is how we met.)

I got four packages in the mail yesterday, including one from Mandy and one from Daniel.

I was super excited about Daniel's package, and I have absolutely no patience when I get fun mail, so I ran upstairs with it and immediately opened it. Inside was a new French press and some delicious freshly roasted coffee beans.

French press coffee is pretty much the way to my heart. That and chocolate.

I'm sporting my new Mandipidy cap, too! Isn't it adorable? I love it!

(I didn't take it off when we got back from dinner last night, and my mom asked if I was going to wear it to bed. No, of course not - that would be weird. Ummm....maybe?)

Anyway, I've been telling (ahem, complaining to) Daniel that Greenville has not yet seen any snow, and he insisted that he was going to send me snow for my birthday. I was skeptical.

But I found this in my package...


Inside, I found this:

Sweet, right?

Also impressive. I was never good at making paper snowflakes when I was a kid, and I haven't figured out how he made this one. I've told him he's gonna have to teach me.

The snowflake is now hanging over my bed just in case the current predictions for a white Christmas in Greenville fall through. And because I like it.


p.s. Don't forget that today is the last day to enter my giveaway!

Oh I love my French Press! I want a coffee maker (on my Christmas wish list) but I use my FP almost every morning. Enjoy!

Merry Chrismas!
