How To Bee Happy


In the nadir of Winter, it's easy to be blue. It's cold out, days are short, and there's lots of illness going around. I was suffering these seasonal afflictions until... my friends rescued me. My close friends Hollie and Megan just pulled me out of a blue funk.

I met both gals through blogging which isn't a surprise since they live so far away. Hollie resides in Texas and Megan lives in Tennessee, places that are over 1,000 miles away from New York.

By coincidence, both just sent me gifts -- and both gifts are socks! How funny is that?!

There's nothing sweeter than an unexpected gift. No holiday or birthday occasion, just a thoughtful gesture from big-hearted women.

I recommend everybody make the effort to lift up their friends. A simple pair of cute socks can make the difference between glum and glee. These certainly gladdened me!

The white heart socks are from Hollie; the bee socks are from Megan.

  11. These are fun!! And I totally agree with your view on unexpected presents. I also like to give presents when least expected. It gives more pleasure to me than to the person receiving the gift I often think.
