This month I participated in something called the "Cara Box Exchange" over at Wifessionals (and she just moved to Colorado, so fun!) It is just a fun way to meet someone new, send gifts and receive them also! And I am a sucker for getting packages in the mail so I thought it would be fun to do. Each person is paired with another person who is participating in the Cara Box Exchange. I was paired with, Kara over at the Joys of May.
I loved getting to know a little about Kara especially because she is not in the exact same stage of life as me. Sometimes it is refreshing not to be overwhelmed with kid stuff all the time, don't get me wrong, I love my kids and hearing about others, but it was just nice to get to know someone experiencing the joys of marriage and engagement, something that seems so long ago for me.
Kara is so sweet and the package she sent me reflected that. The theme was "kid themed" and I thought each item was thoughtful and personal.
Here is what I received.
Well, actually the girls opened it, they were so excited!
|They just ripped it all open, sorry Kara, it took me a second to realize what was even in there|
A cute hat
Dance Party Socks
and the very needed bandaids (especially at our house, these go like hot cakes)
Also not photoed were a good book, and a cell phone stand
They call came wrapped and tagged so cute!!!
Kara did such a great job picking fun things for me (and my girls) to enjoy. I loved being able to share this with my girls, they love getting things in the mail, it just makes their day, so when I see them so happy, I am just filled with Joy. Thank you Kara for the sweet gifts and thank you Kaitlyn @ Wifessionals for such a fun idea!
