QUITE a long time ago I received a snail mail letter from our good friend Trese, WHO is one of the funniest people I have ever met.
Trese is smart, vulnerable, real, witty, introverted, and a gift giver. We have a framed picture of her asleep in a van with her mouth open in our living room. She is also really funny (just in case you didn't catch that the first time) and wrote us a story while she was at jury duty, about how she wanted to see a bear and the next thing she knew she saw a bear.
Trese also sent us a Kroger card for a $20 date night. She gave us specific instructions to purchase something that was blue as well as something we could make something new with. Blue and new. We accepted the challenge!
We bought a taste of fall. Peppermint hot chocolate, pumpkin cupcakes, AND blue cupcake holders.
