Cara Box- August

A couple of months ago as I was starting this blog, I stumbled across one of my now must read blogs, Wifessionals.  Kaitlyn writes daily about her life as a newlywed and mommy-to-be.  When she started her blog a year ago, she came up with this really cool blogger gift exchange known as the Cara Box.  The way it works is Kaitlyn gives each blogger two different bloggers to get to know.  One blogger you put a box together for while the other puts a box together for you.  It's a win-win!  You make two new friends.  You give a gift.  You get a gift.

Am I ever so glad I did this!!!  The bloggers I was paired with were Erin and Megan.  Both are super sweet and I have enjoyed getting to know them both via email.  Erin was the one I gifted.  I had so much fun putting her box together.  I have to admit it was a little scary buying gifts for someone you just met on email.  Luckily, Erin really liked her box.
Megan was my gift giver.  What a sweetheart!!!  She went all out with her gift.  Here's what she gave me.
The lid of the box all my goodies were packed in!  Super cute!!!

Megan's sweet note.
The goods- Halloween cupcake baking kit, a book for J, a planner, journal, clipboard with notepad, bookmark, and Boston magnet.

I have to admit I was difficult to buy for.  I mean my blog is all about my family.  Many blogs are more personal with lots of little factoids about the writer behind the blog.  Not mine,  at this point, it's pretty specific.  It's a scrapbook of my family.  Megan did an amazing job and really thought out her box.  I can't say enough about this experience.   I am so glad I stepped out of my box (no pun intended) and signed up for Cara Box.  Not only did I get a really cool box of goodies, I made two new friends.
