Cara box: November.


Cara Box

I signed up again this month for the awesome Cara Box exchange. And again, was blown away! This is such a fun way to meet new people, but even more, the really have fun blessing others and being encouraged yourself. 

I was paired up with Shawna, who is amazing. This girl is seriously so cool. She has an outhouse at her house, for goodness sake!!! We instantly connected over our love of dogs (she recently lost her's and is getting a puppy SOON!) and then almost severed ties when we realized we are MSU vs UofM arch-rivals. All was saved when we agreed to disagree on football things :) Right, Shawna?
{go green!}

Then I got her box in the mail, and really felt blessed. First of all, she wrote just about the sweetest letter. Ashley did that last month, too. I think that's my favorite part of this exchange...writing really encouraging things to each other :)

And of course, I got tons of goodies!


Shawna seriously out did herself! Do you see that scarf? She made it! She also included treats for my pups, with is always wonderful. (some may be missing...and already eaten :D) Who doesn't love toe socks, fun Christmas stickers, Sixlets, yummy candles, and an adorable journal?! I'm in love with everything!

I really am glad I met Shawna and am excited to stalk follow her as she brings her new pup home in a few weeks, celebrates her sister getting married soon, and everything else. Go check her blog out, its so adorable! :)
