But first... I can not thank you enough for all your heartfelt comments on my ugly post yesterday. It really shook me up... and i wish i could go into more detail, but to use my happiness (my blog) as the forum to voice malicious words really hurt. I will be the first person to admit i am not perfect.
I'm going to stop thinking about that. I just wanted you to know that your WONDERFUL comments? really meant the world to me!!! I am SO glad to have each and every one of your support and love. Know you will always have mine!
GOOD KARMA GIFT SWAP: the idea was to send 4 unique gifts: a treat that calms, something that comforts, a bit of celebration, and a piece that promotes creativity.
Danielle of The Renaissance Polymath got me and sent me an adorable package with a letter explaining what each one stood for:
Calms: She sent her favorite type of bubble bath (which is actually mine as well- Warm Vanilla Sugar)
Comforts: Danielle wrote nothing says comfort like teddy bears (how cute!) and since "you and Mr. Max are now engaged, I figured you would like this little pair."
Creativity: 2 tiny books with colored pencils to write in because me and my bestie like love stories.
Celebration: scented candle called Sparkling Snow to celebrate our first winter on the east coast.
Danielle, i loved each thoughtful gift!!! and I'm glad to know a new friend. xo
I got Ruth of Musings at Home. I had so much fun finding things for her, personalized to what she likes.
i included organic teas & lotion (not pictured) for cold mornings to calm, a hand embroidered lavender scented satchel from B Studio to comfort, hand made envelopes in moss green (one of her favourite colours) from moncy 3 to write letters of celebration, and lastly she mentioned loving to cook so to promote creativity, i fell in love with this upcycled fork recipe cardholder from Forget Me Not Eco gifts.
Ruth blogged about it here, and also sent me the sweetest thank-you email.
i had so much fun participating in this swap! Kaileen, thanks for hosting it! and dearest Danielle and Ruth, i hope we keep in touch.
lovies, i just got home from Texas yesterday and there was a cart full of birthday cards, parcels, and postcards waiting for me! i felt like a rock star. It was the best welcome home (besides Max's kisses). I promise to catch up with all of you soon!!! I've missed your blogs. xoxo
