A cookbook for 2 (It's from England and says 4 pounds on the back instead of dollars! How cool is that?),
A print she had done of a little girl and ducks.
And a print of a little girl and the chicken! My favorite! (To see more of her prints, visit her blog in my links. A Year From Oak Cottage. She's got an Etsy store that is full of fabulous prints.)
Then Emma sent me an e-mail that cemented my self-confidence and happiness. Between these two ladies, my blue mood was cured!
So Marie, I want to thank you for cheering me up on a day that I needed it most. Your unwavering enthusiasm and support for my writing has really helped me during my endless cycle of self-pity
And Emma, I want to thank you for reading the dozens of pages I send you every week and for always supporting and encouraging me. You don't know how happy I am when I see your e-mails in my in-box!
Of course, I have to thank Ben for putting up with me. It's not easy.
And I have to thank my Mom and sister for taking such good care of the puppies while I dance around the living room and gaze at "Transformers."
If my Dad is still conscious, I have to thank him for letting the dogs in his house. He made my grandmother sit outside in 100 degree heat when she brought it down when he and my mom were first married, so you know what that means....
He can't resist these two little faces.
