Cara Box Exchange

So, for 2013, I decided that I would try to be a better blogger. In doing so, I wanted to connect with other bloggers, and I found a great way to do so - the Cara Box Exchange hosted by Kaitlyn at Wifessionals.

Cara Box

This is my first time participating, and I loved every minute of it! I loved getting to know my partners and making new friends in the process! This month's theme was resolutions.

I got my gifts from Chelsea who lives in Washington state.


I have absolutely loved emailing back and forth with her. Well, they weren't really emails; they were more like novels, and it was fantastic! :)

Now, I really wish I hadn't been so excited to rip into all my goodies because now I don't have a picture of what they looked like wrapped. :( Let me tell you though, Chelsea out did herself. She wrapped all the gifts in brown paper and tied them up with the prettiest pink and white twine! It was perfect, and it came on a day when I was feeling low, which might explain why I ripped into the package!!! I also got so excited that I threw away the packaging without even writing her address down. I felt terrible having to ask for it. But, the gifts were absolutely perfect, and just what I needed.

And, I sent gift to the lovely Ashley who lives in Alabama! You can pop on over to her blog to see what I gave her!

I can't wait for next month's exchange! You should join in too!

  1. You will LOVE The Happiness Project. It is my all-time favorite "self-help" book. You seem a lot like me, so I think you will appreciate Gretchen Rubin's outlook on life.

    Thanks for visiting my blog today and leaving such a nice comment. I am always comforted knowing other people go through the same "funks" as I do!
