Start Spreadin' The News…

Well the time has come! I am on my way to NYC in a couple hours.

I have to tell you one thing before I leave. Last night, I came home to find a package in my mailbox.

When I saw the name I smiled and said “What on earth is she sending me?”

I ran up the steps to my apartment, grabbed a scissors and carefully cut open the package.

I found a beautiful hand-knitted scarf inside from Pua.

Here’s me in front of (a picture of) the Brooklyn Bridge, wearing my new scarf!

I called her right away to thank her. It’s really gorgeous. πŸ™‚ Pua says it’s a hug from her… and I truly believe it. πŸ™‚

So here and now I want to say thank you, Pua. You’re an absolute gem of a person. Your heart and her soul shines through in everything you do. Your love for your family and her passion for your friends is so evident. I’m really touched.

And this gift, hand-crafted with love from Pua herself, was a huge way of making me feel very, very special.

I have made some wonderful friends in my time here in blog-land. I treasure each and every one of you. We share each other’s joys and sorrows, triumphs and tragedies. And we bitch when there is plenty to bitch about. πŸ™‚ It’s been a wonderful experience so far, and I can honestly say I’m glad to have become a part of it.

Mush mush mush, I know. But… honest.

So thank you, Pua. I will wear it with pride. πŸ™‚

And have a wonderful weekend everyone. I will be back on Sunday with stories and pictures. In the meantime, be good. πŸ™‚
