This year I joined in with a group of bloggers for a Christmas in the country gift exchange...
Before Christmas, we signed up to participate, and sent in our information to the gals who organized the exchange. They, in turn, assigned each of us another blogger to send a gift to. We were given resources to search for information... facebook, blogs, instagram, etc. It was fun to search for a gift for "my" person... Erin Mullins, the Missouri State Honey Queen. She blogs here if you'd like to check out her blog. Some of the things she enjoys were things that I had "connections" to, so it was extra fun!
About ten days before Christmas, a box showed up at my door! My gift was sent from Kerry, who happens to also be a dairy farmer...from Kansas. Kerry blogs at I Married A Milkman. She's busy milking cows and caring for her family of five children, along with lots of other activities. Check out her blog when you have a chance.
The box was full of goodies, and I had fun pulling them out, one by one...
My sweet tooth was very satisfied with chocolates, caramels, and butter cookies. The note pad hangs on my fridge, and is well used already...as I'm definitely a list maker! The mug came with some iced coffee mix, which I really enjoy. This week now that the weather has suddenly/finally turned COLD, I'm using it for hot chocolate and hot coffee, but I'll definitely be using the iced coffee soon! I can drink that all year long. She included several tea towels in my favorite color green, and a scented wax warmer, with some delicious smelling vanilla cookie wax tarts! There was also a cute Christmas ornament in the box, but it was already hanging on the tree, and I missed getting it in the picture!
It was fun to "meet" her family on her Christmas card, and by checking out her blog as well.
Thanks, Kerry, for the fun gifts!
