I did have another fall post for you today, but it has been postponed until Monday. It’s being interrupted for a special post… I just got the most awesome gift that I must share with everyone!!
You know how I told you all I have the most amazing friends? Well I really really do! A couple days ago I received this unbelievable and thoughtful gift that left me in awe. This one is a topper folks! It’s from my dear friend Dina, who is not only one of my best friends but whom I love like a sister. Dina and I are also related through marriage… our husbands are cousins. I’m so thankful for that connection for it’s what brought us to each other. :D See, husbands can be handy for something after all! Okay, okay, they can be handy for other things too… I guess.;)
Now before I show you what lies in this box, let me tell you a little background about the makers of this out of this world gift… L&V Sweets.
L&V Sweets consists of two extraordinarily talented women: Lara and Vanessa. They are the creators of one of the most breathtaking cookies I’ve ever seen. They are based in Montreal, Canada (Dina’s hometown). I had come across their cookies when I first developed my cookie decorating hobby a few years ago. Since then I’ve been a fan of L&V Sweets and following their work…. and of course being inspired. Their creations are full of endless inspirations. Just see for yourself…
Stunning! Don’t you agree!
Long story short… Not too long ago I learned that Dina not only knew these two talented ladies but was also friends with them! Yeah, can you believe it! I definitely couldn’t. At the same time, Dina couldn’t believe that I knew who they were since they are based in Montreal. Ah yeah… but of course I do! After some ranting of how much I loved and admired their work, Dina had a plan up her sleeve. She decided to contact L&V Sweets and asked them to make cookies for me. She told them about me and my little blog, and from there cookies were made just for me! But they were no ordinary cookies…
They were cookies designed after my own creations!!! Can you believe it?! I was ecstatic not knowing what to do with myself! LOL!
They made my Sleepy Baby doll… oh my cuteness!!
The cherry on top cupcakes… too adorable!
And my aqua pumpkin… so in love!
I was in awe! I can’t believe I got my very own L&V Sweets cookies and modeled after my own creations! Seeing my own creations in cookie form made them even the more special. Aren’t they amazing?! I L-O-V-E love every single one of these cookies. This is hands down the most thoughtful gift ever!!
Thank you L&V Sweets for the awe-inspiring work… and Thank you Dina for being a thoughtful and incredible friend!! You simply rock! Also, I should add that there was a team effort between Dina’s two brothers…. one of them picked up the cookies from L&V Sweets and the second brought them with him on his trip to the U.S. this past week. Not many brothers would do something like that… Dina obviously has two awesome brothers! Knowing all the hands that were involved in this gift makes it a truly special gift!
