Over Memorial Day Weekend I went up to my aunt's house for a few days to catch up, hang out with my cousins, and relax. Not only did I get to do all 3, and have an interesting time having to stop in the middle of the street for a snapping turtle (nope, that wasn't a typo. Turtle crossing. Seriously), I was surprised with something I had wanted for probably 6 months now.
I literally almost died opening up the package, and the second I saw the KSNY print tissue paper, I freaked out (& I was not alone, my cousins were screaming along with me)! Considering how long I had wanted it, the fact that I had thought that it was not even available for purchase, and had then still not received it as a graduation gift (I had showed it to just about everyone that I had known, leaving the website on my computer for all to see), I had thought it to be lost forever. Now I will be fulfilling my crazy dream of bringing this to my job in the city. Oh, how lovely dreams come true sometimes!
In the words of my friend Michelle, it is even more beautiful in person. Seriously, every time I look at it I am in complete and utter denial/shock that I have it. Guess it's fitting as that seems to apply to a lot of things these days! :)
