I have the SWEETEST secret pal (my soapdish pal!) - she ROCKS! She sent me this AMAZING package for my 30th birthday, and it was totally perfect! She really and truly picked amazing things that are absolutely perfect for me. :)

Her theme was "lemons". She said her 30th birthday was a lemon, but she hopes mine is lemonade. :) isn't that sweet? and so creative!!

I got 2 gorgeous bottles of handmade lemoncello, made with organic lemons grown by her father (!!!!). PLUS a printout of recipes and drink ideas! one bottle is in my freezer now...I can't believe I haven't gotten into it yet. She also sent 2 bottles of her own sourwood/lemon jam that I can't wait to dive into. What is the best vehicle for this...warm scones? toast? I shall have to explore!

I also got yummy lemon drop candies, Lemon rimmer (We looooove to play bartender around here! - this will totally get used), and some lemon marigold seeds (she said the foliage actually smells like lemons - I cant' wait to find out for myself) and some lemon sunflower seeds. Last but DEFINATELY not least, She sent me a GORGEOUS pendant that is absolutely, 100% my tastes. The pendant contains a lemon opal, which is supposed to work with a certain chakra and have certain types of energy. I'm still researching this (i find it fascinating!).....I believe that the gifts you are given are generally the ones you need!
