This month I participated in the Cara Box Exchange that was created by Kaitlyn of Wifessionals. The exchange pairs you up with two other bloggers (or non bloggers if you don't have a blog); one of whom sends a box to you and the other you send a box to.
Cara (pronouced car-rah) means beloved friend. The whole idea behind the box is to get to know other woman around the country and send and receive gifts to/from one another. Each month's box is centered around a theme. This month was my first time doing the Cara Box exchange and the theme was regional.
I was paired with two amazing bloggers. I sent a box to Alena of The Adventures of the Pidala Family 5 and received a box from Kate of Little Kate Big World.
Kate is from Pittsburgh, PA and goes to school at Virginia Tech. The box she sent me was themed around Virginia Tech, keeping with items that she thought I would like.
I LOVE chocolate and Russell Stover reminds me so much of when I was a child. Both my mother and my grandfather always had a box of Russell Stover.
Since I love coffee, Kate included a Virginia Tech mug.
Kate also included a can of salted peanuts. These most likely will not last very long!
Since I love pens and office supplies, Kate included a Virgina tech pen. I have already tossed this in my purse!
My Cara Box also included a thoughtful mix of songs that make Kate think of her two homes (Pittsburgh and Virginia). This was so thoughtful. I can't wait to listen to it in my car!
I loved my Cara Box and can not wait to participate again next month.
