Do you ever feel like all you get in the mail is bills, junk, and more junk?
I know I do!
But is there anything better than getting a real honest-to-goodness snail mail letter?
The only thing that might be better is an honest-to-goodness snail mail package!
But those are usually few and far between.
Birthdays and Christmas maybe... and that's only if your family and close friends live elsewhere.
Well, Lauren over at Pink on the Cheek thinks there is nothing greater than happy mail too.
And she doesn't think we need to wait for birthdays or Christmas.
We don't even need to wait for a family member to get an inkling to send something.
You see, Lauren pairs up bloggers to get to know each other and then swap
Happy Mail Packages!
What a fun idea, right?
I was SO lucky to be paired with the amazing Samantha.
If you don't know her/read her blog, you should.
I didn't know Samantha at all before this project, but we had a fun time swapping emails,
reading each others blog posts, and getting to know each other.
Samantha and I were both SUPER busy through the month,
but it was nice to still make time to write.
It was like having a pen pal all over again!
You know that exciting feeling you got in elementary school when you realized your mystery pal
from the class next door responded to your last letter?
It was a lot like that!
I loved learning more about Samantha and preparing a box I thought she would like.
And at the end of the month, Samantha sent me this amazing package
It was like she knew exactly what I would pick out for myself!
I am a bit obsessed with the scarf. Super adorable and amazingly warm.
The nail polish is the perfect early fall color.
How did she know that I always make my piano students Halloween cupcakes?
The cupcake papers will be absolutely perfect!
And can we please talk about the carmel apple milky ways???
Seriously, I didn't even know these existed.
In Brad's words, this is the only way they should make Milky Way.
And I am so happy to have a new white board that magnetizes to my fridge.
Ours is getting old and blackened. So that was so perfect!
And the school supplies are so great for work right now!
I know... I'm an awkward selfie taker... because I never do it. But you just HAD to see the scarf!
And the polish. Such a great color, right?
Samantha, I had so much fun getting to know you and I am glad that we will stay friends!
And another thank you to Lauren for organizing the Happy Mail Project.
