Doorstep Surprise!

Early this morning I stepped outside to see if by some chance the mail person had left me any mail yesterday. You see my mailbox was destroyed this weekend by someone who hit it and left (that's another story that I'll share later) so I had to put a stop on my mail. Unfortuntaely the stop didn't start unti l today. When I opened up the door this morning I didn't see any mail but I saw a green package with a card that said "Bride to be." I wish I would have taken a picture of it before I tore into it but I was so excited to see what was inside that I couldn't think to grab my camera... until afterwards. When I saw the handwriting I immediately knew it was from my friend Rebekah. I took it into my room and opened it up! I was sooo happy when I saw what was inside. It's the perfect gift! Thank you, Rebekah! I love it!

A thinline Bible with my soon-to-be last name!

That is so sweet.Maybe the pastor who marries you could use your Bible during the ceremony. Then it would be even more precious!
