Turn That Frown Upside Down

Day # 3 with a cold... feeling crappy... looking forward to sleeping in on my day off.  Get called into work... Bummer...  :^(

I finish work for the day, so I decide to check for mail at the post office... I have a parcel... Yippee!!  :^) 

A week ago I was the lucky winner of a San Francisco Gift-A-Way from Edgar over at his wonderful blog Blacksheep's bit of the Web and my package arrived today!!  I was so excited to open it, I could hardly wait... but I had this sad face looking at me wanting to go for a walk first, so I set the box aside to have something to look forward to when I got back.

 

As I cut open the box, I immediately caught the aroma of ground coffee... mmmmm!  Sitting on the very top was this beautiful card of the San Francisco Bridge, and inside Edgar had hand written in detail where each item had come from.  It was almost like being right there! (How I would love to visit someday!)


 When I entered the Gift-A-Way, there were some specific questions about likes and dislikes, and WOW!... everything in the parcel was a GREAT BIG LIKE!!!

Milk chocolate...


There's that coffee I smelled...


Next came a bunch of my favourite candy...


In a pretty green bag, some of the softest, chewiest, tastiest caramels I have ever had!!  (I am sampling the  pomegranate one as I type... to die for!!)


And last but not least some lemon curd, pink salt and some sweet honey...


I would like to send many thanks, along with a great big hug to Edgar for this simply awesome box of goodies, and for helping to turn my frown upside down.

Oh, and my taste buds thank-you too  :^) ...
