Gator Bites and French Postcards!

Hi Bloggerettes!  How would you like some gator bites for lunch?
Oh, not this kind....
This kind...

A boxed lunch from a new place that just opened in my neighborhood.  It's called Gator Bites.  They make
gourmet sandwiches, salads and baked goods and she
serves it all up in this precious pink box.

Our lunch was a delicious chicken salad on a croissant
with chips and a pickle!
Don't you just love the pink box?  I knew you pinkee lovers would.
Which brings me to the reason for this display of pink.
It's Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.

The owner told me her son's middle name was Gator and
when he was a baby they called his kisses, "gator bites."

A very dear and very sweet blogging friend sent me these magnificient french postcards.  She carefully picked each one in shades of pink especially for me!  Isn't this the most special thing for a friend to know me so well and to select something she knew I would love.  Thank you so much dear friend, you know I think the world of you.
Just look at these precious photos and the scrumptous french writing!
I just love how they are addressed and the sweet messages conveyed.
So romantic!

Be sure to stop by How Sweet The Sound for some more pinkilicious happenings.
