I participated in my first, but definitely not my last, swap through the blog Chaotic Goddess Swaps. This one centered around mugs and all the cool stuff you can drink from a mug.
I geeked out completely when I got the email saying who I was paired with. Darling Zane, my partner, is from Latvia. Yep, you heard me right, Latvia! I was so excited. She mentioned in one her emails that she loves to travel all over Europe and she has a friend who visits her from Finland. That is my definition of a magical life. :)
Zane is one of the sweetest and nicest people I have ever swapped with. I am so glad we "met" and I am looking forward to a continuing friendship.
Here's what was in my Latvian swap box:
|Isn't it beautiful?!?|
|Geeking out! Geeking out! Geeking out!|
|So much fun to have a Latvian pen pal! :)|
|These are fun. I haven't tried one yet because I am trying to ration my treats.|
|Sean recognized these candies, but I didn't. I bet they taste good!|
|Chocolate covered raisins! Yummy! (I sent her some too - great minds think alike!)|
|These little penguins...|
|...hold tea bags. How awesome is that!|
|Zane tried to find a mug made in Latvia and she succeeded! Isn't it beautiful. :)|
|I let Sean have this one because it was one of his favorite candies in Australia. It's a chocolate egg with a toy inside.|
|What a beautiful gift. I am so excited about everything!|
Thank you Zane for all the gifts and the thought that went into them. I am so grateful! :) :)
