Why Thank You Gran!

Yes I'm 27 (almost 28) years old and my Gran still sends me care packages. I wouldn't have it any other way and neither would she.

The care packages come twice a year, once in the Fall and once in the Spring. They all - regardless of season - contain chocolate, dishtowels, body washes and scrubs, some sort of candle and lots and lots of hand sanitizers.

Oh and she always makes sure I notify her as soon as I receive the package so she can throw her shipping receipt away. Oh the stress she must endure those few days that box is in transit.

Last week I received my Spring care package and inside I was delighted to find these ADORABLE Easter candles.

I love them so much that they're still sitting on my counter almost a week after Easter.

And Gran, if you're reading this - Zulu would like to THANK YOU for her delicious treats. She said that she loves you very much and is so proud to be your Great GrandDog.

My favorite part of the care packages is the little sticky notes Gran leaves throughout the box. She's so witty and cute, they crack me up every time. The one above says "Big bag for little dog, don't let her eat chocolate." Gran, I think Zu can handle that big bag - no problem.
