Allow me to introduce you to some very special lovebirds. Last year, when I was still pretty new to the whole Instagram small business thing, I reached out to Lauren at @amenagerieofstitches. I didn’t know her AT ALL, but I came across her amazing page and fell head over heels in love with her sweet crocheted creations. In particular, her adorable little birds. I messaged her and told her about the reason behind my company name (Love Nest = the name of me and Kris’s home)...and (unthinkable!) she messaged back! A friendship began, and not long afterward, I received these two precious feathery friends in the mail. Not long after THAT, we just happened to be in Colorado at the same time and got to meet in person. What’s really special about that first meeting is that Kris came along (because I was nervous) and Lauren got to meet him. That means so much to me now because she is my only instafriend-turned-real-life-friend that ever got to meet Kris. And that is something I truly cherish. These little lovebirds had a place of honor in our Love Nest and also made an appearance at Kris’s celebration of life. Lauren, they are a treasure to me and so is your friendship. Thank you. 👭💗 #amosthankfuls
The watercolor painting is from last year when I first received them in the mail. I really wanted to turn it into a greeting card...and still do! 😂
