Little Gifts Galore

Friday, February 26, 2010

Want to know why I feel SUPER special today???
Because these two little goodies arrived on my desk :

The Beautiful Garmin Forerunner 205
{I am now poor because of this baby, but I'm already smitten in love--sorry Jeff}
And for those that helped me with their comments and suggestions on the perfect watch for me, THANK YOU!! I ended up with the 205 instead of the 305 because for right now I don't necessarily need the monitor, and it was a little cheaper, too--haha!!
And a sweet HANDWRITTEN thank-you card and gift certificate to Mimi's Cafe from my friend Jennifer's mom Linda. I always decorate and paintpen Jennifer's little girl's personalized items {wood stool, apron, sand bucket, dry erase board, etc} so she sent me a sweet note and a goody to enjoy brunch on her =)

Never, never, never underestimate the power of a handwritten note!! They come few and far between nowadays, but I assure you, people don't forget when you take the time rather than sending a quick email =)
