before i post one more picture of the 365 series i must shout out a big thank you to all of you and those who take the time to write me an email or lift my spirits over at instagram. it’s truly overwhelming for me sometimes (in a good way, of course) and i feel so terrible that i don’t have the energy to return all your messages and that i’m so incredibly slow at the moment. though i feel a lot better already it’s still a hassle to actually call or write or comment to all your lovely notes.

i addressed that at the clinic and i was told not to drive myself nuts and the time will come where i will be able to do all this again without big effort. so i take this opportunity to give you all virtual hugs and kisses for being so patient with me and for just being there. i’ll NEVER forget that. you are all truly a blessing and i can’t express how grateful i am and how much strength it gives me. THANK YOU!!

and today i want to thank 2 people who just blew me away with their kindness that made me cry of joy and caused a feeling of happiness. i’ve never met them in person but through blogging and i’m just speechless when it comes to describe of how blessed i feel being showered with so much goodness.

today i opened the mailbox and found a package from cristina with an apron she made me. she’d send me some pictures of it some days ago but the original apron is even more fabulous. it’s made of this superb south african design fabric that was discontinued (i forgot the name) and she even stitched my name and my label on it and it’s just the coolest apron EVER. cristina send me several surprise packages in the past few months and i have no idea how to ever thank her.

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  2. Oh dio mio Lou ma che bello……che vergogna però che lo leggo solo oggi!!! Ma sei proprio un amore! E ricordati: CHI VA PIANO VA LONTANO.

    Hey liebe Lou,
    was für ein schöner Post… Mir geht es genau genau genau so mit Susannes Armband… Ich trage es neben deinem wunderbaren Sternchenarmband ebenfalls jeden Tag und fühle genau das selbe! Wollte nur, dass du es weisst ;)
    Sternchenarmbänder rocken!!! ;-)
    Weiterhin alles alles Liebe und Gute für deinen tapferen Weg!

  5. Meine liebe Lou,
    jetzt sitze ich ganz gerührt vor meinem Rechner, lese deine Worte und schaue auf das Armband, dass ich von dir bekommen habe. Ich schicke dir weiterhin viel Kraft, Liebe und Energie für deinen Weg! Und ich freue mich wenn wir uns irgendwann einmal “wirklich” treffen – bis dahin – fühl dich gedrück!
    Alles alles Liebe – Susanne
