Bloggers are nice.

One of my favorite things about having a blog is the social opportunities it provides. I have met so many nice people through blogging- from emails, comments, get-togethers, conferences etc. Some of these women I now consider dear friends. One of these women is Dorangela from Two Prince Bakery Theater.

Dorangela is a creative mom of 2 boys from Tampa, Florida. I first started conversing via email with Dorangela in the springtime and she is just a thoughtful, normal, FUN lady. We have never met in real life, but our conversations online have been so pleasant that I can’t wait to someday meet her!

A few days ago, a sweet package arrived on my doorstep. When I opened the package, I was delighted to find the box full of goodies- for me, for Mason and even for my 3 other kids.

There was a thoughtful note from Dorangela congratulating our family on the arrival of Mason and well wishes for the future. How nice is that?!?

Of course my kids thought Christmas came early and they eagerly opened their presents right on the kitchen floor. Cookies, candy, bubbles and other trinkets… it made my kids day!

I just wanted to publicly thank Dorangela for this sweet act of kindness. Please do me the favor and visit her darling site Two Prince Bakery Theater and say hi! She is someone you will come to know and love, I promise!¬†She doesn’t know I am doing this, but I think she will really appreciate the nice comments from some new blogging friends!

Thanks to all of you for making my blogging experience so pleasant!
(With the exception of a handful of lurkers who make mean, anonymous comments! You know who you are!)

Have a great weekend!
