Having sent off my package to the recipient Michelle paired me up with (I hope she gets it soon and loves it!) I was eagerly waiting to see what my Secret Santa had in store for me. When I came home today my wait was over and this was waiting for me at the front door:
Oh the excitement! What could be in it?! Well it didn't take me long to tear it open to see what was inside. I discovered my Secret Santa...Stacy at Stacy's Books.... had quite the surprise waiting for me! Inside was beautifully wrapped gifts with Godiva chocolates attached. It was almost too pretty to tear open! Almost....
To my absolute delight the smaller package had a real mistletoe inside that I have already had my husband hang up...it is so pretty! The bigger package was the real surprise for this bookie girl...a SIGNED copy of Jodi Picoult's newest novel, Leaving Time. A SIGNED COPY!!! Being that Jodie Picoult is one of my all time favorite writers this one is going on the forever shelf to be loved and savored and kept safe. I cannot wait to read it!
I am so happy I signed up to do this Bookish Secret Santa and I will definitely be doing it again next year! Thank you so much to Michelle for organizing it and to Stacy for the awesome gifts....I am definitely in the spirit of the season now!
