Ahhhhhhhh, I've quite literally got the warm fuzzies! Check out this scarf Lauren sent me as a gift! Oh, my! It is the softest thing I've felt in I don't know when, and it is so comfortable. Just in time for winter, which I have no qualms telling you is not my favorite season, I have this cuddly scarf to help keep me warm. It's true, I detest wearing a coat, so I can see me happily donning gloves and sweatshirt and this scarf on any day when the temp is above 20 degrees this winter. Twenty degrees is an arbitrarily chosen threshold, but that's just the way it goes. That's my limit-- cross that, and I might have to wear the dreaded coat. Anyway, I am pretty sure there are days up there in Minnesota when 20 degrees seems relatively warm, right, Mallory?
As for the scarf, and some gorgeously intricate and magical dolls that Lauren creates, if you'd like to see her offer them online, why not convo her on Etsy and let her know you're interested?
One more important thing about the warm fuzzies-- I have to tell you that Lauren and Mallory and Mrs. Whirled Peas (a semi-anonymous Secret Santa from Huntington Beach, California) all spread warm fuzzies through my world yesterday morning! Thank you ladies! The "whirled peas" were thankfully in the dried form...and they were a sweet reminder that we all wish for world peace and can help bring it about one gesture at a time. Mallory secret santa'd me with an envelope of junk. . .yes, JUNK, and YOU KNOW I'M THE WOMAN WHO LOVES JUNK !! Bits and pieces of brass and assorted whatnots, and I was one happy camper as I sat in the parking lot of the post office! Then, Lauren sent me the handmade scarf, as well as a wonderful note and some glass!
So, the take home lesson of today's post is that warm fuzzies are always a good thing. You'd think I'd be able to put that into more eloquent terms, but I'm finding that it's one of those feelings that grabs your heart and squeezes it but defies further description. It's truly NICE. Hope each of you reading this has encountered a warm fuzzie or two this week!
