Some misc pictures and a gift from my SECRET PAL!!

So, I actually filled the disk on my little digital camera this morning. I tried to take a picture of the sweet little braclet my secret pal got me (more on this in a minute), and realized I had a butt-ton of photos I've never even looked at. I'll post a few here. They are funny. One is REALLY bad picture of me (honestly, it;s AWEFUL!!), but funny. It's taken IMMEDIATLY following my defense in May (hense the DOCTOR thing). I look way dorky (ok, dorky-ier than usual), but it's so goofy, I had to post. Y'all should get a good laugh anyway.

Here's also a picture of my two very best friends (J- send me our Iowa pix and you'll make it here too!!). Poor Uncle Phil is rather usual we were likely making fun of him. But I'd guess he always turns red with a beautiful girl in his lap...(just a guess, mind you!!)

This last picture is of my sweet gift from my secret pal. Our DTC group from June each has a secret pal that sends us gifts each month. I have one who sends me gifts, and one I send gifts to. I was surprised the other day by a package in the mail. I put it on immediatly. The red thread is a throw-back to the ancient Chinese belief/saying that:

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break."

Thanks Secret Pal!!! I'll keep posting goodies as they come in. I'm very much looking forward to the packages!! And hopefully, our Wait will be eased by the fun !!

I'm so glad that you like the gift! Since I feel a bit like a stalker knowing about you and being anonymous myself (strange, isn't it?!?), I'll share one thing that struck me as interesting when they told me I was your secret pal. I grew up in Wilmington, NC! I have an old friend who lives in Raleigh! Don't live anywhere near there now, but wish I did. Except for the whole snake thing. Like living in an area of the country where that's not an issue. Secret Pal.
