I had a "mystery outing" today with a friend of mine. She took me to my old place of work to receive a gift. She had organized a fundraiser to send me on my travels so that I didn't have to worry about money. I'm so very touched that all of those people would do such a wonderful thing for me. I almost cried while I stood there and they presented it to me.
I don't completely feel like I'm worthy of such generous gift, but I'm certainly not going to refuse it :). I feel so honoured to be thought of like this - that all of these people care so much to send me off on my travels. I will be sending thank you notes to all of them once I confirm a few email addresses. Those of you who read my blog that contributed, thank you - I appreciate it very, very, very much.
Afterwards, someone (ok, the organizer) bought two pairs of my earrings!!!!!!!!!!!!! She didn't buy them through my store on etsy, but in person. I was thrilled to sell them - they did look fabulous on the buyer :) She will look more spectacular than she always does when she wears them :)
After that, we picked up our car. We have a new car!!!!!!!! I don't have pictures yet because it was getting late, it was cold, and Ian had to curl, but we'll take some in the next few days. It is a very nice drive and we are quite happy with it. We will need to get used to it, of course :)
So overall it was a great day and filled with lots of positive emotion. I don't think I could ask for a better day than this. Thank you.
