I wish I had thought of doing this for a friend. It inspires me, and I hope it inspires you.

Jen and Mindy

Here’s a guest blog by Mindy about her friend Jen (the beautiful BFFs in this picture!). Thanks for sharing Mindy!

(By the way, Mindy is an etiquette consultant and has an awesome site – Manner of the Month. Check it out and her blog!)

Some are students of schools of thought.  I am a student of my friend Jen’s school of thoughtfulness. Not only did she graciously agree to pick-up our paper and mail while we were away, we arrived home to find this waiting on our back steps…


filled with this…


everything I need to get my little family of four through the first morning back from vacation:

Natural farm eggs, bakery fresh whole wheat bread, homemade zucchini muffins, organic orange juice, bananas, and my all time favorite beef from Jen’s family’s all natural cattle ranch.


Jen, I am not only grateful for the breakfast you provided, but for inspiring me in the way you think of others!  You embody a life of gracious living; thank you for sharing that life and the groceries that follow with me.

I will see you in the morning since my market run can now wait until after our tennis lesson!

Love, Love!

Thanks Mindy for sharing and thanks Jen for being such a thoughful, wonderful friend. And, calories from girlfriend gifts don’t count!!

What fun things have your girlfriends done for you, or have you had the opportunity to do for them? Share and inspire!
