This, to me, is one of the most delicious posts here, EVER!
Below is the email I received from our beautiful friend Candice. It made me #furiously happy and I think it will you, too:
I jumped for joy when I received my package on my doorstep on Monday afternoon! It felt like a dream! I have never had someone care enough to send me a piece of joy, just to help me to feel better about myself!
I promised you that I would document it on Twitter and that was exactly what I did!
I got ready that morning and felt fancier than ever, so I made sure to throw on the RED lips too!
I went to work, (and had a glorious day) went to the grocery store, twirled around in the park while my buddy, Paige Bickerstaff from Peace Photos, took pictures of me, and even pumped gas in my red dress!
I wanted to make sure that I got as much use out of it as possible.
I wish that I could send everyone just a mere GLIMPSE of the joy that it brought into my life on Wednesday. Some people got it, some people didn’t, but honestly, it was for ME and nobody else so I didn’t let them steal my joy.
That dress has some serious magic in it! (All the way to the bedroom! Totally not kidding) *hee hee*
Thank you for being the thoughtful, kind, wonderfully caring individual that you are, Heidi! Without you, I would still be leading a boring life. You spiced me up, buttercup!
I can’t describe it, but you gave me some courage back. I don’t care what they say, this is about me and my life. It only matters what the people I love think about me. Luckily they love me back.
You are like a Knight in shining armor, but BETTER!
Thank you again. More than you will ever know.
With every good wish, I am
Very Truly Yours,
Truthfully, I didn’t do much, thanks as always to our inspiration who started this movement, Jenny Lawson the goddess Bloggess — and Candice, all of the magic was in YOU!
It’s my privilege and my heart is dancing for you.
