her name is sara


everything was beautifuly wrapped, many beautiful bundles!!


and she will make you laugh, she will also make you cry and sometimes she makes you yell out-loud "you go girl" but the other day she had me speechless. waiting at my door was a package, i was sure it was my autumn swap package, but when i turned it around i saw happy birthday nadia what? then i saw her name. Sara and i met while blogging more specifically we both signed up for garden swap(till this day i don't know who sent me mine) i had never entered one before and was new to blogging. i was excited to put things together and i started to visit her blog. very soon after i new it was kismet. Sara's blog immediately drew me in. sara is the kind of friend that would cry with you and make you laugh through your tears(do you know what i mean) her post are heartfelt, funny-no they are darn right hilarious, she often has me laughing so loud, most of the time i think she should be woman/mother/ funniest person of the year you don't believe me read this.

Sara is also the busiest person i know yet it is apparent that if i was to ask her family, friends, neighbors they would all say the same thing she is the center, the glue the heartbeat. while visiting her blog you realize how big her family is and how much fun they have together and if i was blond i am pretty sure i could sneak right in and what a blast that would be! oh and the coolest thing about being part of her family is, her postings about there birthdays-best ever she creates the perfect day for each of them! I am also addicted to her "five sense fridays" even though sometimes they happen on sunday!

Sara and i are friends that is how i feel, we have never met in person, we don't agree on certain issues but i respect her a whole lot!i also love's how she is not afraid of being different OKAY our friendship is based on her cool sense of style and the fact that she wears red shoes:) So how she found time to not only send this birthday wish but create was inside is mind boggling specially that i have a feeling this is the busiest time of her life am i right sara?. I will just let the pictures speak for themselves, but a few things that you will not see so i will mention them is a knitted bracelet, chocolate from Utah!! a window ornament in my favorite colors.. a birdie. I have never received anything with my initials on it so this is extra special because she made it!! don't you just love the ribbon!!!my colors!! a card with a peacock feather( now that is what i meant by kismet) i have a chapter in my life i call a "peacock feather"-she did not know this and there, in a card lay a peacock feather!!! and finally a cd, she made it for me i have played it at least three dozen times, it is in my car, download in my computer and in my ipod...sara every time i play it - i thank goodness you sent it-it has truly been a must this week! and the title says play it loud speaker and i have and outloud i would like to say

merci chere sara!!!

your listening to cibelle singing grass one of the songs on the cd

Nadia, I love that your sense of blogging friendship is like the real life, we disagree with friends on certain issues but we are tolerant and respect the whole lot.
I never visited her blog, I think so I am travelling to that place, I am always looking for a good laugh.

What a wonderful gift! I can't begin to tell you how happy I am that I started a place of my own and I strongly believe that what happened, happened for a reason. You inspire me Nadia and you seem to be such an incredible person. If you only knew how reading your blog inspires me, its amazing really
