Well, I don't gamble so you may be wondering how I managed to win the lottery, right? I won the Mother-in-Law lottery.
I have heard lots of moaning, upset and strife over MIL's lately and it seems every where I turn one of my friends is having troubles or horror stories of a gathering that has gone wrong because of the dreaded MIL.
I TOTALLY won the MIL lottery. I think of my MIL Denise as one of my best friends. I love her to death and thank my lucky stars she was given to me as part of this whole marriage dealio.
She is the coolest and even though she doesn't comment on my blog...she is always looking at it and emailing me about it and giving her support and love. I KNOW!!! So sweet huh?
So for my birthday last year she gave me a years subscription to Country Living UK. ( I LOVE the magazine and ANYTHING English ;) Each month she lovingly wraps it up and posts it over from Merry Old England to me here in the U.S. of A. I get so excited to see a parcel in the mail, knowing that it is chock full of beautiful pics and design ideas. That's not why I love her but it helps :)
So~ I hosted my family this year for Christmas and she knew how stressful it would be and so she sent me this ( for no reason other than she is awesome) so I could relax and feel better after all the hard work.
(Look at her cute writing)
Covent Garden she found these for me.
So I just want to restore hope to some of my readers that you can have a wonderful MIL.
So Denise~ I LOVE YOU, thanks for having Daniel so I could marry him and meet you and you get the picture!!
Now everyone say hi to my cute English MIL and don't be jealous, though I know you all will be.
