Back in January, I joined the Valentine Swap over on Sarah's blog, Auburn Street. So far I've received a few beautiful cards (I bet my mailbox will be bursting tomorrow), and I think today is the perfect time to share them with you...
My first card came from Brandi in San Diego. I love the Canada map, and the little trail leading straight to my heart in Victoria. Isn't it sweet?
Then came a package from Micaela! How thrilled was I to find out she got me in the swap? Beyond! She is one of my favourite bloggers, and I love our long, chatty emails and letters back and forth. Micaela sent me my Christmas ornaments, remember? She is just the sweetest thing, and I feel like we're old friends. And how pretty is this parcel?
Inside were chocolates for the boys and the most amazing pink peppermint soap for me. Mmmm! It smells like heaven.
Then there was M's handmade card. It was so pretty and you could just see how much work she put into it. It also had a great long letter tucked inside, and you know how much I love letters, don't you?
And it had a Notebook theme. I love The Notebook. It makes me weep (but in a good way). Thanks, Micaela love! I'll write back soon, I promise (by the way, I didn't get Micaela in the swap, but I sent her a little Valentine parcel anyway... I just had to!)
And thank you to Brandi, too, whose blog I am definitely going to follow. I'm looking forward to more mail over the coming days (I happen to know there are some goodies coming from some of my very best friends, Em and Kelly- yay!) and to keeping the Valentine love going for as long as I can. Isn't the blogiverse great for bringing together so many like-minded girls? I love it.
