snail mail.

There are few things better than getting packages in the mail.
When I place an order online, I pretty much stalk the tracking code
and the door for the UPS truck.

Even a simple card in the mail
can totally turn my day around and bring a smile to my face.

So that's one of the main reasons I love blog swaps.
You find a new blog and make a new friend in the process.
I joined the summer must haves swap and was so excited to be paired with
Micaela of Dolce Vita.



Everything was individually wrapped with pretty tags :)

All my fun goods! Socks for running, chocolate face mask and chocolate to eat...which I promptly did!
Pretty smelling soap & pink nail polish...a summer must for sure!
A flower hair tie, dish towels for my inner "domestic goddess"
and coffee!


Thanks so much to Krysten for organizing the swap, and to Micaela for my sweet summer package :)
