A Swap Surprise

Look what arrived in the mail for me!! A Valentine surprise....just in time to start the Valentine spirit around here!!

I joined a Valentine swap a few weeks ago and met a super sweet pastor's wife all the way from Idaho!! I so enjoyed Amy's email. It was harder than I thought...trying to shop for someone you really don't know so well and have only talked to once...but it was fun.

Amy did a great job shopping for me! Look at all she had in that super cute gift bag for me....

There was a cute pin, stamps (to satisfy my craft cravings), candles, chocolate and an absolutely too sweet rose wreath! I'm definitely in a Valentine frame of mind now - THANK YOU so much, Amy.

I hope everyone is plotting/planning a little fun for all those you love! I hear people complain that Valentine's Day is just a silly commercialized day....oh c'mon!! Its fun and a cute way to have a good time (and maybe create a memory) with your sweeties. My kids still remember pink milk for breakfast and paper hearts hanging from the kitchen ceiling......oh my, how quickly time does fly!

Thanks again, Amy!! Swapping was a lot of fun!


  1. What a nice surprise! I know what an encouragement that must have been to you!

    Hope you have a wonderful day.
