Remember when Wren was super duper sick a few weeks ago? By the end of the first week my tank was running on E, and one afternoon our doorbell rang. I looked like a train had hit me and debated on not even answering it, but Wren was napping and I didn't want the mystery guest to ring the bell again. So I reluctantly opened up to the FedEx man.
The surprise package was a gift for Wren that she can treasure for years to come.
Knotted together with linen, Lisa sent her a very special heart banner.
My heart melted as soon as I saw it. To think that Lisa would make Wren such a special gift, and that the timing could not have been better to raise our spirits was an emotional moment. It really hit home for me how small and special this blog community can be. With your sweet words and her thoughtful gift I felt so much support and love.
It is so true that good things come in small packages! THANK YOU Lisa, Wren has a lifelong treasure in this banner.

But I am sure the wardrobe for someone with 8 arms isn't all that cute since I'm sure your options would be limited. So maybe I will go back to saying mind reading or invisibility.
However, 8 arms is very cute when it is in the form of a pillow embroidered with a big blue octopus! I took the next jump in thrifting recently when I brought this pillow home for $5 (don't worry, no bedbugs here! I put it through the wash machine on Sanitize twice).
About 5 years ago I wouldn't have dreamed I needed anything at a thrift store, 3 years ago I would have told you you were crazy if you told me I'd every buy clothes at one, and up until just last week I cringed whenever walking by the blankets and pillows. Never say never! Because this baby happily resides in my almost-finished office as my thrifting badge of honor.
So since I only have 2 hands I am sorry this took so long to announce, but along with 'never saying never' I also believe in 'better late than never'.
