I had a very crappy day today.
It was one of those days of work that was too busy for its own good. I was already tired, so the constant stream of work did not help. Needless to say, I was very happy to get home when it was finally over.
The first thing I do when I get home is to check my mail. I moved into a new apartment about 3 or 4 weeks ago, so I am not getting everything at the new place yet.
When I opened the box, there was an envelope. I have not really been expecting anything, so it was a surprise.
I saw return address and my heart stopped for a beat or two. It was from Laurie, otherwise known as Crazy Aunt Purl.
You will remember that I met her a few years ago. She was signing books in Nashville and I took a road trip to see her. It worked out so that she and I got to actually talk one on one for a bit after the signing ended. She has always been one of my quasi-heroes, so it was a very welcome surprise to receive an envelope from her.
When I opened the envelope, this is what I found...
I was so excited that she autographed it!
Then I noticed that there was a card..
Her sweetness could not have come at a better time for me. It totally turned my day around, let me tell you.
Now.. if I can just make it through the rest of the week.
I am Stitches South bound this weekend, so Saturday cannot get here fast enough!
