Gift Basket - An Unexpected Gesture of Kindness

Seriously, we have no idea who did this.  UPS arrived at our door yesterday with a box addressed to US, as in me and my husband.  My husband asked what I had ordered and to my knowledge, I couldn't remember ordering anything that hadn't already arrived at our home.  Hmmmmm, a true mystery, for sure.  We opened the outer box, removed the paper packaging and look what we found inside!

The cutest wooden basket filled with Portlock Wild Smoked Salmon, Caviar, 2 beef sausages, 2 kinds of cheese bricks and 4 different boxes of crackers. 
We've called other members of the family asking if they knew anything about this, but they all said they didn't know who it was.  I'm guessing someone knows and isn't coming out with it.  To those of you who know me, I'm the one at Christmas time who shakes, rattles, and rolls my gifts trying to figure out what's inside.  This unexpected gesture of kindness is so appreciated but on the other hand, it will totally drive me nuts for a time.
Caviar.....I've never seen caviar, let alone taste it.  Something to look forward to when I can bring myself to unwrap the basket.

Wow, that is a mystery to solve. What a lovely gift. I haven't had Caviar either; so let us now what you think about it. It too would wait a bit to unwrap it and just enjoy the moment. Blessings and hugs!

Hello there! I could have sworn I've been to this blog before but after going through a few of the posts I realized it's new to me.
Regardless, I'm definitely delighted I discovered it
and I'll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!
