"owl" always love you...

A few weeks ago, one of Emma's friends mom brought us this owl cookie jar filled with homemade chocolate chip cookies.

She told us that in place of funeral flowers for Nana, she thought we might enjoy this special cookie jar.


Such a sweet gift.
Thank you, Julie.

XOXO

What a thoughtful and symbolic gesture for your family during this difficult time. I didn't have a chance to wish you and your family a blessed Lent season. I very much enjoyed the photos of your kitty.

I love cookie jars and all those cookie cutters look so nice in that glass jar. Your friend was sweet to give you a permanent reminder of your loved one. I'm your newest follower.

What a beautiful sentiment. Something you can see everyday and think of as a warm gift just like Nana. I am going to file this one away. Thank you for sharing. Smiles...Renee

That was a very sweet thing for your friends to do. The Owl jar is really cute. My eldest sister (the librarian) LOVES owls!
