Suppose I say summer,
Write the word "hammock"*
put it in an envelope,
take it down the hill
to the box. When you open 
my letter you will recall 
those days and how much,
just how much, I love you.

-Raymond Carver

*originally Carver used hummingbird, but I replaced it with hammock. 
(Because in case you didn't know, hammocks are pretty important to us)

well I love you dear Mandy. And I love you and Kev.. and your obsession with hammocks. Someday maybe I'll have a hammock friend too :)

I like the word hammock in there better than hummingbird! Paints a prettier picture, I think!

PS. It's totally not even that cold in CA, mid 50s most days, but sometimes I just get really cold for no reason. And other times, like this morning I drive home with the window down and my hand hanging out the window (the car heater on of course!).

Hope you are having the loveliest of days!

I love that one word can mean so much and be something special to two people who have made it so :)

Mandy, I forgot to ask...does the 10% discount have the same restrictions as the giveaway; US only?
