Hello dear readers!
Recently I got to visit one of my blogging friends Petie (from all things bright and beautiful) in Oklahoma.
It was a great, relaxing trip. Petie and her family were very hospitable and memories of shopping, touring, movie-watching, and getting to know Petie and her family better was a great experience. I think the only difference that Oklahoma and Iowa have is the dirt. (In which case I brought some home with me in a bottle and is now sitting on my bookshelf)
Petie, if you’re reading this then you probably know what I think about you. But if not, here it is: You’re an awesome sport, and you truly love the people around you. 😀 Your perseverance in running is superb, the way you do your make-up and hair in the morning is inspiring to watch, as well as listening to you sing. Tell your family that I miss Lydia’s hairstyles she did on me, your father’s discussions, your mother’s kale chips, your relatives, your friends from church, as well as yourself. Thank-you for making my time in Oklahoma great. You really deserve an award for making people feel comfortable in their own skin. 🙂
In Christ our Lord,
Marianela (Nela for short)
