I’m not sure of how we all met on the internet, but somehow our blogospheres collided and we became friends. I vaguely remember chuckling at NanaBread’s comments on someone else’s blog and then reading her posts religiously. Slowly we all began twittering like mad. Then we all joined forces for cookie week, pie week, cake week, and the rest is history.
When someone suggested we act as “pen pals” with boxes of goodies from home, I jumped at the chance!
I had a pen pal once in elementary school and I loved sending her letters and waiting patiently to hear back. Is there anything better than snail mail packages? Methinks not.
Kirsten sent me a package filled with homemade jams, African nectar tea, chocolate from Denmark that melts on toast (I KNOW), and a hand knit necklace. To say I am thrilled is an understatement! I’ve already noshed my way through a significant portion of the food 🙂
My first “One Kitchen, Many Hearts” bloggy box buddy was Allison, and I knew I had to find a few things to fuel her running habit. You can check out her site to see the goodies I picked for her.
Needless to say, I’m pee-my-pants-excited for the next bloggy exchange.
Have you ever had a pen pal? What’s the best thing you’ve ever received in the mail?
