Oh WOW! It is one of those weeks where I have not done any blogging, photographing or reading the things I want. Welcome to being back at work and adding on grad school. I am loving my grad work, and it feels good to be back in the classroom teaching, however, I pray I find balance to keep me sane and loving life.
It was really fun to stalk Nicole from Treasure Tromp, and send her a mug too. I loved looking through Nicole’s photos, and reading over her blogs. I can tell she loves cute things, travel, and photography like I do. The hardest part of the swap was realizing that neither my town, nor the closest city have great places to buy mugs. I mean, I could have bought Nicole a mug with a BIG RED N on it, but I didn’t get a sense from her blog that she loves Husker football. After days of searching every store I came across, I finally copped out and ordered it from Amazon. I felt bad, but I would rather it be wrapped in a box than a mug she wouldn’t like. So anyway, click here if you want to see what I sent. I think it’s super cute!
It’s amazing how much you can find out about a person online through social media. It has also made me wonder if I should scale it back a bit. Why do we all put so much out there? I have been wondering this for months, and so I am thinking it’s time to take action.
Anyway, about a week ago, I received a pretty package from Dawn at LeRoy Lime. It was so sweet, literally and figuratively. She sent me a mug with a cute flower, so I can grow my knowledge in grad school, along with a wonderful bookmark, and Smarties! It was also wrapped in a matching cloth. I was so excited and touched by the beautiful package and appalled at myself for sending a bland box from Amazon.
Thank you, Dawn for the wonderful mug, and Thank you to Dalayna for hosting this fun swap. If I ever do one of these again, I will scout out a good place to buy a mug first, if one even exists.
