Goodness in the Mail
Have I ever told y'all how much I adore the mailman? Besides the fact that he will often bring my mail to my front door if there is a parcel to deliver as well, he...well, he's the guy with the presents! What's not to love?!
The other day, he brought by these beauties - 9 handmade napkins, custom, from my sweet sister Myrnie. They're a Good Job present, for meeting my weight loss goal before the end of the year. (She made her goal a few days later, and her package is ready...I just have to make it out to the post office!) I requested napkins...in a size appropriate for a 3 year old. (Too large, and they'd be dragging through her dinner!) Myrnie picked out this luscious brown and white print and went to town on her handy-dandy serger.
The verdict? The three year old approves!! I keep these in the fruitbowl, in the middle of the table, and she loves to grab one to wipe off her little fingers.
