surprise mail

I was surprised to find yet another good mail delivery in the mail today. This is getting crazy. Since I don't have many friends and family that I have convinced to start blogging most of you are somewhat strangers to me. I just know about you, your family, and some about your life, just by knowing a friend of yours or just by reading your blogs.

Back in July when Jenny and I had our girls trip to Utah I had the wonderful opportunity to meet one of her friends from New Orleans. After Hurricane Katrina, Allison and her family relocated to Bountiful where she is from. They are living there temporarily until they are able to return to Louisiana and to their home. I had heard a lot about Alli, her family and had even met her husband when he had interviewed in SA a few years ago. From the things Jenny had said about her I knew if I ever had the chance to meet her I would instantly like her. My guess was right. When I saw her for the first time she had the biggest brightest smile and beautiful eyes. She had a spunky personality and a fun sense of humor. I knew right away why Jenny had been friends with her. I am so glad I was able to meet her and feel of her incredible spirit.

Back to my good mail. Allison(she's a secret blogger) sent me a package with the cutest shirt she found in St. George, some body cream from bath and body, and a sweet, sweet card. In the card, she wrote when she saw this shirt she thought of Jenny and I. She sent Jenny the same one. hehehe She also said how glad she was able to meet me this summer. Alli, I am glad I was able to finally meet the famous Allison that I've heard so many good things about. Come visit Texas, soon. Thanks a bunch for the good mail.

I am glad you got the package. It is so fun to send "good mail." It was so fun meeting and getting to know you. You have an amazing family.

Thanks for letting me be a secret blogger.
