We are just at the beginning of my favorite season. Every year I look forward to it, and every year it is just too brief. No, it is not summer, although that is nice too. The season I am referring to?
Nectarine season!! Every year I wait to see them. The crunchy sweet, delicious cross between an apple and a peach. YUM! On Wednesday we went grocery shopping (we gave in a few days early from our week of bad food and went shopping before the weekend) and I thought “hm, I wonder if nectarines are in yet?” AND THEY WERE… just barely. So I bought 4 white nectarines and am now waiting until the bigger shipments come in before I go back to the store, dancing in the aisles, skipping about with my bags and bags or fruit. Ahh yes, if only life were a musical. About nectarines.
And then yesterday, you guys, we picked up a trunk full of boxes from the UPS delivery station. It was a bubble rap, paper, and cardboard box filled Christmas in May experience. Kamel’s parents had sent us bamboo cooking spoons, a 10 bowl set (of all different sizes), the rest of our wine glasses, and glass tupperware. Let me repeat that last one: GLASS TUPPERWARE.
We have wanted glass tupperware for a year now. And every time we go to target Kamel begs me to buy glass tupperware and I have to tell him no! Wait for our registry stuff to come first! He agonizes over our plastic ziplock tupperware. He HATES them. So now, we rejoice in easily cleanable, sustainable tupperware. Hooray!!
But that was not all we got. Christy Tyler of Christy Tyler Photography (who is also taking engagement photos of the one and only Maris and will be featured on the blog sometime in June!) sent us a Rabbit.
I continue to be blown away by the generosity of you all, and of the awesome relationships I’m building through the internets. I sit in my office (shh), or in my living room, or in bed, cheering you guys on through comments (when I can get comments to work!), through twitter or in my head. Marveling at how awesome I feel all your lives are (cuz you all have some kick as lives you’re living) and it still boggles me that maybe some of you are doing the same. Thank you Christy for this awesome gift, and for being so incredibly kind! The internet continues to rock my socks to the max.
