I love surprises. I get to be in on a lot of them but I don't always know the recipients. James ordered this necklace over a month ago for Erin and I had to keep it a secret. Not that I'm terrible at secrets but she's such a sweetheart of a blog pal and you know, we visit each other a lot. Keeping that secret was challenging let's just say, and every time she left me a comment I'd think, you are so about to have the necklace you wanted... I thought he'd give it to her for her birthday which was last week. And when she wrote about her wonderful birthday celebration, I left her a comment that said something like:
"nice! and did you get anything really special for your birthday?"
She wrote me back, "yes, thanks. I did receive some really nice things..."
I thought, "hmmmm...maybe she didn't realize that necklace was from bonbon?" or maybe she thought, "wow deb, that's a pretty shallow thing to ask." And then I felt weird.
The next day James wrote to me and I imagined him to be laughing while he wrote he was going to give it to her for their ANNIVERSARY, a few days later on the 4th...doh. Luckily I didn't TOTALLY blow it and say, "hey, did you like your bonbon?" or "how does your new bonbon look?", but you know...it's what we call in the business "a close call..."
I guess I get a little too excited to see what our work looks like out there in the world on all you pretty girls...
