A little kindness goes a long way (literally!) - and a blogger spotlight

If you haven't been over to see the Sleepy Time Gal on her blog, you're missing out! I discovered Nicole and her cozy little space on the web almost 2 years ago, and her blog remains my personal favorite. We've also become friends and this sweet gal just sent me a little care package all the way from the East Coast to my home here in France. Here's a sneak peek.

We're both expecting boys this fall which has created a special complicity. But more than anything I admire Nicole's creativity as a mother and homemaker and her keen sense of beauty. She's chock full of ingenious ideas that are (for the most part ;) ) simple to execute, but watch out for her over-the-top amazing ability to pull together an extravagant Medieval Feast (for example!) and make her four daughters' eyes glitter like magic!

Her photography is crisp and original and full of beauty (as you can see in the homemade cards she sent me) and snapshots of her daughters during their home-schooling adventures are tender and full of emotion. The simple yet profound insights she shares from her heart often stir my soul.

Her sweet care package was full of love and beauty and homemade goodness. I absolutely loved it! I love everything she makes and was so excited to have a few of her creations in my own little hands! Thanks Nicole! Your sweet kindness came a long way and it definitely made my day!

Do you like to send and receive care packages? Have you ever received one that especially touched your heart?

P.S. I just found out that Nicole had her baby boy today! Rowan! How ironic, we've also chosen an R... name for our baby boy! Now, that you're all guessing at what the name could be, go ahead, guess away! And congratulations to Nicole!
