February Cara Box: Club Sexy

I absolutely, positively enjoy participating in the Cara Box exchange each month!
This month, we were paired with ladies from our home states, which was super cool of Kaitlyn to coordinate!!

I sent my box to Sarah over at To Be Mrs. Collier.

My box came from Demi at A Front Porch View.

Demi did a great job, & I love everything I got in my box!!!

31 days of blogging {days nineteen - twenty one}

write about a sweet memory from you past
when my husband and i were dating, we lived in our college town over the summer to attend classes. my husband got a job at a package facility and worked the night shift. one morning, when he got home, he had breakfast from mcdonald's for the two of us to eat in bed. it was nice to wake up to!

write a letter to someone
to my husband:
i know i frustrate you, but i don't do it intentionally. i love when you are sweet to me after i have rough day at work. i know that i can be aggravating too, but no matter what i do that upsets you, i will always love you. you are the bread to my butter for now, for ever, and for always.
your wife

someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why

i don't care who i switch lives with, but i want a life where i don't have to bring work home every day. i want a somewhat less stressful life that i enjoy. i want a life where i get to do what makes me happy every single day.
