Friday Faves

Happy happy Friday!!! We survived another week, and this one is awesome for me because it's the last day before my Spring Break next week! Praise!!!
For my 5 faves this week, I thought I'd share some of my favorite ways that my friends and family have been showing me love and support through the last couple of weeks. I think you'll understand why it's been so overwhelming.

{1} Flowers
We've gotten so many pretty bouquets and arrangements of flowers! Our house smells LOVELY when you walk in because of it. Biana sent me some birthday flowers last Friday, Lynn sent me some this week, and earlier this week I got an early evening delivery of flowers from some blog friends which was incredibly sweet and totally unexpected! You girls really brightened up my day with your thoughtfulness!

{2} Small gestures
My friends at work have sent flowers, and also set up a google doc where people at work have signed up to bring in little goodies and things to brighten up my day....for the next 4 weeks! My friend brought in coffee and a chocolate croissant (that was the size of my head!) on Monday and my assistant principal bought me lunch on Wednesday (you can read about that slight debacle in my post yesterday haha). I feel SO loved by my work family. I still can't believe the generosity.

{3} Cards/Emails/Phone Calls/Texts
Some of my friends (blog and IRL) have sent me some incredibly sweet emails and cards. I always love getting real mail, and the cards have been so sweet and thoughtful. Owen's card definitely was my kind of humor: 
The phone calls and texts from friends just checking in on me have been so kind, too. You never think that you're that important in someone else's life (well, I didn't anyway), and then you realize how many people keep you in their minds and their hearts when you don't even know it.

{4} Bracelet
Three of my friends at work also sent me a surprise over the weekend (they really are amazing friends). This Alex and Ani Paths of Life bracelet showed up on my doorstep and I've worn it just about every day since. 

{5} Hugs
These are probably my favorite thing thus far. I'm a hugger through and through, and the hugs I've gotten from family and friends are the things that make me feel the most cared for and loved. Items and things are wonderful and incredibly thoughtful, but a hug is at the top of my list! I'm thankful for all of the huggers out there, and the people whose hugs have given me comfort, MG being at the top of the list of great huggers! :)

I'm really not sure how I'd be making it through everything without my tribe of friends and family. You always think that in a hard time, people will show up, but I honestly never could have imagined this. Even without all of the things, I know just how much people care and I feel so blessed to have so much support and love.
Thank you to each of you who have commented, emailed, texted, called, sent a card or flowers. Please know that it has all helped my heart.

I hope you have a great weekend, surrounded by those you love and care about.
