Don’t you just love those unexpected happy moments that pop up every once in a while? I know I do. I am not talking about big momentous super splendid type surprises but the little ones that lurk around corners–or in this case on a web site–that jump out and say,”Hah, here I am!”
I had one of those moments the other day. I was doing some Christmas shopping online and found something I love that I have not seen in the (real) store for some time. I thought it was discontinued as this particular retailer does discontinue things every season. Well, while I was browsing the online store I found the item–and on sale! Let me tell you I dropped my Christmas shopping and put my favorite in my cart ASAP.
Some of you may think it strange to get so excited about a small thing like bubble bath and body lotion (can you guess where I was shopping?) but when you really really like a fragrance it sort becomes your signature, part of your identity. The box came today–super quick shipping. I think the UPS man thought I was going to faint when I saw who the delivery was from. You may think I am going a bit bonkers over this but truly this is big in my world–I have been without my identifying signature fragrance for too long.
I am going to take a nice long bubble bath and put on my lotion and my most comfy jammies. Then I am going to get my book and a glass of my favorite wine and my cat and curl up in bed. A perfect night.
Oh, I did remember to do the gift shopping.
Frankly, the friends for whom I was shopping unknowingly gave me a gift. If I hadn’t gone to that site to get their gifts I never would have had my happy surprise. Friends are wonderful!
