When I was in college I used to claim to keep the Post Office in business because I wrote hand-written letters to my best friend every week.
I love mail. I adore hand-written letters and brown paper-wrapped packages. I love visiting the post office and ordering stamps. I can only IMAGINE the joy I’m going to feel mailing away our first set of Christmas cards (if you want one message me your address!).
My love for all things mail-related reached an all-time high when I discovered a fun little blog link-up that involves MAILING personal packages to a new blog friend.
Earlier this week I received my Cara Box from Taylor and I was completely thrilled (and shocked!) at the size of the box and it’s incredibly thoughtful and personalized contents.
First, because Taylor is from Dayton, Ohio, she sent me post cards all about her hometown:
Next… I saw two HUGE items that fit our July “Nautical” theme:
I don’t think Taylor even knew this, but we’re currently building a collage “Florida” wall. These items fit PERFECTLY!
I told Taylor how much I love to write and journal… and she sent me these ADORABLE pens and note cards and post-its and note pads:
I will definitely put those to good use! She also got me a new journal in my FAVORITE color. I love journaling and lately I’ve been journaling less because I ran out of pages in my last journal and all I have left is my Blue Day Journal. This came at the perfect time:
THEN I saw this adorable flip flop. I opened it up that was stuffed with fun color-coordinated accessories: a yummy smelling candle, scotch tape in the most fun container I’ve ever seen, and a perfectly plaid deck of cards:
And, finally, the best completion to the nautical theme: some ocean-themed push-pins. I can’t wait to use these!
