Fess up. Who did it?

Minutes ago, a tiny package arrived addressed to me. My horoscope yesterday informed me that I would be receiving a small package today.

The return address was one that I did not recognize.

There was no card.

I opened up the box to see a meticulously wrapped box, in the most magnificent shade of blue.

Inside the box was the world's cutest luggage tag.

Who would send me such a wonderful gift on my actually birthday just hours before leaving for San Fran? Who is so incredibly classy? Fess up. Who did it? I love you.

UPDATE:
My best friend in the entire world fessed up. Dear God I love that woman. Thanks for the classiest of all birthday gifts ever.

UPDATE 2:
There was even a smaller package tucked away in my mailbox this afternoon. Also from an address unknown to me.

This time. There was a note: "OHmommy, A little gift you might enjoy Miss." This time. I opened up the package to reveal pure class. The most beautiful monogrammed classy stationary from the ThePaperPrincess.com Oh. My. Joy. It was delicious.

You see. Some weeks ago, I sent Miss my copy of Petitie Anglaise with no note attached. I had no cute and classy stationery. What a random act of kindness she performed today, a nice reminder of the kind of person I would like to be. A person that thinks of others. Dear God I love that woman. Thank you Miss.

Miss Jamie said...

That's such a creative gift! I'm more jealous of whoever had the idea than I am of the actual tags, haha.

Happy birthday, classy lady :)

Happy Birthday girl! Thirty-one has never looked so classy!!!

PS - Love the luggage tag.

PSS - Stationary? How fab! My Mom works for a super stationary company & was in Ohio just last week. In my head I was thinking, "She should stop by & have a classy lunch with OhMommy, and get her some lovely stationary". Glad someone beat me to the punch!
