Grateful: Limonata

During the course of wedding planning, I've been the recipient of several random acts of internet kindness. I've held off on blogging about them for silly reasons. It seems more special to keep such nice things to myself for a while. It's time to spill the beans!

A few months ago, Susan, emailed me out of the blue and offered to buy the Limonata for the wedding:

"In reading all your planning for your wedding, I really, really wanted to do something nice for you...as a gift. I know that sounds CRAZY since I'm a complete stranger, but really, I can't tell you how reading about your adventures and your anecdotes about style and life and all the fun you have around the city has inspired me to really explore, take in, and indulge in SF."

Another great thing wedding planning has taught me: say "yes" when people offer help. Since then, Susan has joined the LAC (and been very well received by the members).

Rob and I picked up the four cases of perfect little bottles from her apartment last night. I ♥ the internet!

That is so awesome! And she is right. Your blog is something I look forward to reading every day even though I am a complete stranger as well! It makes me wish I lived in SF! And your adventures are so great to read about!

I forgot to say I hope you have a wonderful wedding day and an awesome honeymoon! Can't wait to read all about it!

Susan said...

Yay for Emily! And yay for the internet! And while we're at it, yay for me! Hee! Thanks for being "grateful", Em. It put a big smile on my face today!

That is so cool! I'd love to do something like that, but I'm afraid that people will think I'm nuts! That is super nice and you've got some great karma coming your way Susan. I do love your blog, Emily and can't wait to read all about the wedding. You were one of the woman who inspired me to start my own!

Susan,
How sweet of you to do that.

Now, why don't you allow comments on your blog? I wanted to share observations about the Vermont Country Store.
