love thursday seconda parte: i don't mean to brag but...

I have the best mommy in the world (no offense to your mommies, of course).

Today I received this:

NB: This is the fourth outrageously heavy package I've received within the past month and a half.

Before my mom sent it, the story goes, my niece handed her an already sealed envelope to put in for me. Here are some of its contents:

That there on the left? Why yes, it *is* a snowflake cut out of a coffee filter.

Again, I don't mean to brag, but let's just say I'm a pretty durn lucky gal.

Reeses AND Nips?!!!

Ya know, it doesn't help for me to have seen this right now, of all times... when I am in dire need of chocolate!

That was very sweet of your Mom. Maybe if I'm good, she'll send me a box too?! :p

Care packages are the BEST! Does your mom put every care package in one of those baskets? She's pretty awesome.

Lucky in more ways than one. You have a pretty talented niece. Happy New Year to you!!!

I hope Expats comes back on line soon.

Yes, Giulia, I'm viziata as well as fortunata ;)

Kristen, thanks for visiting; hope we'll be seeing more of you!

Laura, actually that was a lovely set of lined baskets--4 in all. I had gotten them for myself before I came to Italy, but they didn't make the cut in the luggage, so my mom found a way to weasel them into a box. Sadly, no, all packages do not come with baskets, but enough candy to make your teeth hurt just looking at it? Yeah, that's a given.

Gil, my niece is pretty talented, sweet, cute...don't get me started! I missed out on the fun this morning at Expats as I was snoozing. Hope it's all better now.

What a great package. You are one lucky girl.

Also your niece is clearly a genius. Very cute snowflake.
