The niceness of others!

I don't know about you guys, but when people do nice things, for no reason, it really just MAKES my day! 

I recently bought a dress from Coury of Fancy Treehouse, and for no reason other than being a complete sweetheart, she sent a few extra dresses along with my order for me and my sisters to share. 
Seriously so nice of her, and I could not be more grateful!

Also recently a photographer/acquaintance/might as well be friend, heck! sent me a package in the mail of some of her art prints, because she had taken photos of me a few months back and we had kept in touch through instagram, etc.. and I mentioned wanting some of her prints and she emailed me right away asking for my address and sent me this wonderful box of goodies! hair bows, prints, other handmade things.. seriously SO sweet. Her name is Bliss Katherine and you can check out her photography here, seriously just spend a few minutes looking at her stuff.. it's absolutely GORGEOUS. You can see some of the photos she took of me in the instant film section and the music section.

And anyway, enough of my rambling, but I just want to encourage you (you, meaning all two of you reading my blog) to do something nice for someone for absolutely no reason. Send someone a package in the mail with something you made- art, a hair clip, some stickers, anything! Just simple things that will cause someone to smile! It's honestly just as much, if not more rewarding for you than the person receiving the gifts. Try it! and just see how happy it makes you.



  1. Well, you know what? You were nice to me. We had an agreement, which I was perfectly pleased with... then you went the extra mile, and offered more. It made me very happy. Thank you. :)

    1. Aw, of course! It was absolutely no trouble at all!

  2. Hi Christie - love Merriment's sound. Cant wait for April 1st to roll around. I heard you guys last year when you came to Dallas. LOVE!

  3. I'm your secret 3rd reader! This post made me happy. I started listening to Eisley around 10 years ago so I feel like I've grown up with the DuPree family via the internets. You guys are all amazing. :)

  4. Christie,

    You and Collin did a great job with the EP. I wish I was able to see Merriment and Eisley on this tour but I unfortunately can't. I truly hope that I'll catch you all during next year's tour if you make a New Jersey stop. I first started out as an Eisley fan but now after hearing Merriment I might as well just consider myself a Dupree family fan. You all seem quite nice and down to Earth even with the amazing music talent you have. Hope you continue to stay that way even if you make it real big one day. Have a great and safe tour.

  5. Bliss is the best! I've been following her work for a while now :) She's such a sweetheart!
