Boy did I get lucky this month! I was paired with reader Laurel and holy cow did she outdo herself.
Check out this letter that she sent…so pen pal like!
And here are some of the goods in the box….
Here’s another shot of the treasure…
And now the breakdown…
Yogurt pretzels – these were opened almost immediately as they’re such a great snack!
Dirty chips – also gone within moments of when the bf got home
Blueberry cinnamon bread – gone
Sunflower seeds – opened but still hanging in there
Pacific cookie company – no clue where I got the willpower to hold off on devouring this
The tea, the sun drops, and the trail mix are still unopened. They’re all a great snack so I’m waiting to enjoy them at a time when a portable snack is needed.
The artichoke hearts haven’t been used yet, but they will surely be enjoyed soon.
Not pictured – Trader Joe’s dark chocolate with cookie spread filling (GONE!) and two packets of Almond Butter (yum!)
The textiles – I love that Laurel included items other than food. The towels (or at least I’m using them as towels), the beaded berries, and the little satchel (love that word!).
Awesome job Laurel, many thanks!
Such a fun thing to do in what is typically a pretty bleak month.
