As of last Monday, Spring has officially sprung! I always look forward to this time of year. I am definitely not a cold weather person and the minute it’s warm enough for me to sit outside without a jacket, I am throwing open windows and letting the fresh air in. We just got our garden boxes ready to plant some vegetables and I love the smell of dirt and the joy that comes from planting, growing and eating that food. My kids get so excited when we start seeing “popcorn trees” (ie. white flowering trees) blooming all over the neighborhood and the life springing up all around makes me smile.
I’ve done a couple Mommy Style Monday’s in the past (here and here). Usually it is based around a theme and each of the participants writes about it. This month we were supposed to think about our favorite things that have to do with Spring, put them in a box and ship it off to a fellow blogger friend to enjoy. (I sent my box to Britt over at My Little Sunshines who is actually a friend of mine in real life, although the rotation was completely random.) In turn, I received a box of my own from Rachel at Tutus and Heels.
Rachel and I actually met last September when we helped out with a photo shoot for Favor Cart. I’ve been following her ever since then and it was fun to get a box from her and see what her favorite things are in the Springtime.
There is something so exciting about knowing that you’re getting something sent to you in the mail, but not knowing exactly what it is you’ll be getting. When I got my box, I took it inside and immediately opened it up. Check out the fun stuff I got from Rachel!
Super cute, right? She sent note pads and pens (perfect for all the list making I do), a little zipper pouch, a couple of fun paper straws, brightly colored clothes pins that spell out the word ‘spring’, stamps, a yummy grapefruit candle, gold washi tape, chocolate eggs and 3 delicious cake bites from a local bakery called the Sweet Tooth Fairy.
