That friend for me is Callie.
We met in California on a singing tour in 2003, she living in Washington and I in Massachusetts at the time. We share the same faith and the same love for family and found a bond that has stayed true through the years! While in college in NYC she'd come stay with us during breaks and we'd spend our time thrifting, cooking, exploring new towns, and talking till all hours of the night. She's also the one who introduced me to Etsy and encouraged me to start my own shop. I was recently the matron-of- honor-from-a-distance (Too pregnant to travel :(!!!!) for her wedding and we've become closer and closer through the years!
With this being said you can imagine my excitement when I came home yesterday to a giant box from her! It was addressed to Avalyn and I. As soon as I opened it I knew it had to be photographed and shared with you! It was the sweetest to open each gift that she had so lovingly wrapped and embellished! Our taste is very similar and everything was so pretty and delicate. I literally got more and more teary with each thing I opened.
Thank you so much my sweet friend!
Here's a look at our wonderful gifts...
The cutest ruffly cap sleeves...I can't wait to snuggle her in this :)
I've been collecting vintage ceramic lids to re-purpose.
This one she found is so sweet and will definitely be perfect in the nursery!
(I'll post pics when done)
~So tiny and sweet~
(I'm a SUCKER for leopard!!!!)
This vintage stationary is too adorable for words...
just look at those dancing bugs!!!
All of this along with some beautiful things to help me
feel girly post-baby :)
I feel truly blessed to have Callie in my life!
There's nothing like a kindred spirit!
She also has a blog you'd all enjoy: dovetailvintage.blogspot.com
And maybe take an extra minute today to call that sweet friend of yours
and remind them how much you love them :)
Enjoy your weekend!~Amy
