Jen from That's What She Read and Mallory from From California to Kansas hosted a book swap recently that included swapping coffee mugs... Genius! Who doesn't love a cute new mug?
I was partnered with Melissa from Lulu & SweetPea.
She is amazingly kind. I love her blog. It's so bright and cheerful. After checking it out, emailing, and tweeting back and forth I realized we had quite a bit in common. I knew I needed to share my favorite book with her. Finally my package was ready to mail.
This is only the second swap I've done and I'll definitely take a trick from Melissa and keep it. She wrapped each of my gifts in really pretty wrapping paper. It looked like a box filled with happiness. I wish I had taken a photo before I opened them! I'm impatient though and for me that was like trying not to open the presents Christmas morning.
Melissa sent me a Faith coffee mug, which I use a LOT. I actually had to take it out of the sink and wash it prior to taking this picture. I probably use it every day! She also sent me Linger and Forever. I read the first book Shiver and really liked it so I was thrilled to find these two books inside my box. Of course I read them right away! She wrote me a very sweet note and I'm keeping it inside Linger. My son enjoyed the package as much as I did. He quickly snatched up all of the packing peanuts and bubble wrap. They are now with his enormous lego collection...
This was a really fun swap! I enjoyed getting to know Melissa and you should definitely pop on over to her blog and check it out.
