This month I entered into a gift exchange where you are paired with two individuals who are in similar life situations as you: 25-29 married. You spend a few weeks getting to know each other, and then you send each other a gift with some encouragement.
This month I was paired with two lovely ladies, Amanda and Lesle.
Lesle and I chatted about our hubbys, our sweet little dogs (both rescues), and the love of tea and wine. I sent her a gift, so you can check out her blog for that package. I did make a lot of the stuff, so I will be highlighting it here in the upcoming weeks too for how-tos.
I also loved getting to know Amanda. She and I have similar personalities and both have husbands who are big goof balls. We have so much in common in was a little ridiculous reading her stuff at times!
It would be no surprise to me if I continue to chat with these ladies, for they are kindred spirits for sure. It was such a pleasure learning more about them!
And who doesn’t like creating and receiving gifts?
Amanda sent me this lovely box of things!
She was so thoughtful about getting things for my crafty side! And for my love of wine! I love the picture. I need to find a frame for it so I can hang it in my bathroom ASAP. Tom made fun of me for how giggly I was when the box showed up on our doorstep. So fun!
She also wrote me a lovely personal note, which may be my favorite part of the whole exchange.
It’s not every day that you are able to meet other women/wives randomly from across the country. So thank you to Kaitlyn, for putting this unique exchange together.
I will be sure to participate again in the future!
