Autumn Comfort.

lovies, i wish i had blogged about this swap when i first signed up for it because i think a lot of you girls would have loved it (M!) and been absolutely PERFECT for it.

Forgive me because when i signed up for it, i was going through a difficult and sad time that it slipped my mind until i got the email and it was already closed. It won't ever happen again, i promise!

It was cutely called the Comfort Swap, hosted by Sofia at etre soi to celebrate our favorite season, Autumn: send 4 gifts of comfort to someone you are matched up with.

Melissa A. of Design Delights got my name and i couldn't be more thankful. She has an eye for beauty and her blog couldn't be titled better. She also has lots of beautiful thoughts, like this one on dreams.

I got her package today at lunch and was so excited to open it! Please excuse the horrible cell phone picture... i was up late watching the World Series (and one too many Corona Lights to celebrate the Yankees win).

and not to mention twinkie didn't tell me my top was scrunchin.

beautifully wrapped in my favorite colours. Melissa, you really paid attention to what i like and that is just darling of you! Her comfort for me: Half Broke Horses by the author of "The Glass Castle," a pretty coffee mug from Anthro, Lindt Hazelnut dark chocolate (yum!), and Starbucks Colombia VIA Ready Brews in both medium and bold. I can't wait to try them out!

Melissa, thank-you!!! I loved it all so much.

{Melita, i hope you get my comfort package soon

& love it just as much as the one i got today}

UPDATE: Melita posted this really sweet post about my gift to her on her blog, Gussying Up the Tuttle if you'd like to see. awww. i'm glad she enjoyed my comfort package and i'm glad we are friends now. xo
