a gift.

i went outside this morning to check my mail and found a mysterious gift on my front porch. a vintage-looking box sat next to my doormat with a white envelope addressed to "sarah" on top.

pleased with the surprise, i went to lift the box and found it heavy. i tore open the envelope and found a pretty card with a sweet note inside. strangely, it was anonymously signed, "a friend." i opened the box and found a wonderful vintage typewriter -- the second in what now qualifies as my collection!

i absolutely love it. i have been guessing all day about who it could be from, but have not figured it out for sure.

do you recognize this handwriting?? will the gift giver ever reveal herself???

thank you, whoever you are, for such a thoughtful gift. it brightened my day so very much.

John and I think we know who it's from. Hmmmm....wonder if we're right?
