This week has been full of little gifts. The best gifts all came Tuesday, the day I posted my last post about having a hard go of things.
1. Tate called me Tuesday morning and offered to take me out to lunch. The offer alone was a gift, actually sitting down alone in a restaurant with him was just the cherry on top.
2. A friend and long time reader, mpotter, told me that she had seen me in Redbook Magazine! I had completely forgotten that I was going to be in the magazine. My name is in a magazine because of something I wrote (that was heavily edited and added to, but whatevs. I’m in a real, live magazine!)
3. I was asked by Old Navy and Babble Voices if I’d be interested in shopping at Old Navy and talking about the trip and our purchases on my blog, Southern By Proxy. I gotta say, shopping with $150, courtesy of Old Navy, doesn’t exactly suck.
In fact, it was pretty awesome. Please see below, Ella jumping up and down for joy in a dress she picked out on her own. I felt the same joy and I might have jumped up and down for joy, too. It doesn’t hurt that they are having a huge sale right now, lots of items starting at $5.
