I so loved my parcels last week. Nothing gets me quite so excited as a full mailbox! Or motivates me to send some mail of my own... Oh, Canada Post must really love me! I've started making Valentines, am getting my book ready to send off to Egypt (!!!) in the book swap (I'm going with a Canadian classic), have ordered fun birthday gifts online for my nephews in Ireland, and have sent several letters to several of my lovely faraway friends.
I also wanted to "pay it forward" and send a parcel to someone out there in the blogosphere. After receiving Cassie's package of treats, I was supposed to do the same for someone else. I chose Bethany of Rinse. Repeat. Have you read her blog? She is just darling, and I love that she lives in Wisconsin (like Tib in the Betsy-Tacy books!) She's also been having a difficult time lately, and I thought she could use some cheering up. I had a lot of fun choosing some little treats for her and wrapping them in pretty turquoise tissue. I know I don't actually know her, but I feel like I do, as I've learned a lot about her from her blog and the comments she has left on mine... so I hope I chose some things she'll truly love. I can't wait for her parcel to arrive in Eau Claire. I wonder what she'll think?
