It seems only fitting to dedicate my 100th post to a very fitting individual. A few posts back, I mentioned that I was really wanting to acquire cat teapots. This is so random, I know, but I saw one once on eBay and then decided that I just had to have some. One of my best blogging friends, April, read this post and said that she had a rather large collection of cat teapots. If you don’t know her by now, you should. I have connected with this amazing woman on so many levels and we have found ourselves to be uncannily similar. It’s always a blessing to find someone you can actually relate to in the world. Please visit her at her blog “Finding Beauty In Spite of Myself.” She is a beautiful woman inside and out, who is trying to see the beauty in every day life. Not to mention, she is an incredible photographer.
Back to the teapots 🙂 Now how awesome is that! She was so incredibly kind to offer to give me some of them if I wanted. Of course I did! I have yet to see one in any store and I’ve looked everywhere, but I just can’t seem to find any. Guess Indiana is a cat teapot wasteland 🙂 Anyway, after a few emails back and forth, she sent me some of the coolest cat teapots I’ve ever seen! The three above were carefully and thoughtfully packed in a box nestled on my front porch all ready to be opened and loved. I chose these three because I love that the spout is the paw 🙂 They are far out of reach of Chester’s mischief and are perched in the perfect spot on my shelf. I couldn’t be happier about the new addition to my home 🙂 Thank you April.
I can’t believe how kind some people can be, like April. It only takes one act of kindness to make someone’s day or even their year, like me 🙂 Even more importantly, the simplest gesture can make a friend for life.
I challenge everyone to perform some random act of kindness, from just giving someone a smile and saying hi, or giving to someone in need. Maybe you haven’t talked to a friend in awhile. Pick up the phone and call or at least text them. Do anything. When you have, share it with me 🙂 I’d love to hear.
Thank you for reading.
P.S. My boyfriend made it back wonderfully 🙂 He’s sleeping now. I can’t blame him because he was on a plane for 14 hours straight. His body is not used to the time change right now and it’ll take him about a week to get back to normal. I will post later about the things he brought back 🙂 I saw some interesting stuff that he brought back, but he has yet to show me what they are. Chester is investigating a bag of something now, so I better stop him before he chews a hole in something.
