There's nothing better when a friend does something incredibly thoughtful and unexpected.  I experienced this last week when I had my dear friend and fellow blogger, Monika from Splendid Willow, over for girl's night last week.  We had the best time laughing, drinking champagne and eating a fabulous brie that I left in the oven a little too long - I was too busy giving her a tour of my home and completely forgot it was still in the oven.  Oh, well... it still tasted good.

She arrived with a gift in hand which was completely unexpected and unnecessary.  In one hand was a bottle of champagne and in the other was a gift bag from Coach.  Inside, I found this darling case I had not seen before.  Isn't it lovely?!

At first, I thought maybe it was for jewelry, but look what I found inside...

Yes, bottles for vitamins and medication!  Why didn't I think of that?  Really, such a brilliant idea!

I am so grateful to have met such a wonderful friend in blogging that I can actually meet up with in person.  Hopefully, I will get to meet many more of you in the future!  So, thank you again, Monika, for being such a thoughtful friend and for the unexpected gift.  You are one in a million!
