Angie over at American Homemaker had her 600th post and celebrated by hosting a Valentine Swap. She paired up the bloggers that entered and I was paired up with Debbie, who by the way is living in England! I was super excited to get to know her better. I found out she liked pink and so I went with that as my theme for what I sent her and it seemed appropriate considering this was a Valentines Swap.
This morning I was rudely awaken by the mail man BANGING on my front door. I was annoyed because I had a serious migraine and was trying to sleep it off before I had to run any errands, but soon my annoyance changed to delight as he was holding Debbie's package! I was so excited to open it but rested a bit more before grabbing my box opener and ripping into it's contents.
Inside was an array of lovlies, one of which was a multi layered tag with the instructions for each item, below is what she wrote, (by the way her handwriting is so elegant):
This was the first tag:
My family motto is
"Share the love."
1 Nephi 11:22 - "And I answered him, saying Yeah, it is the love of God, which sheddeth itself abroad in the hearts of the children of men; wherefore, it is the most desirable above all things."
This scripture has motivated me to this choice of items in this swap, especially after our emails & reading your blog! I hope you enjoy them & are happy with my choices.
The second tag:
A snugly romantic cuddle....no TV, just each other.
A gorgeous aroma.
The aroma was a sweet smelling vanilla, I just adore vanilla!
The next tag:
Take time out- spoil yourself - spend the whole time thinking of "Him"
The bath fizzers are shea butter and I know they will get used alot as I love taking baths!
The next tag read:
Diary & Pen
Secure your date nights---keep & enjoy each one.
The next one read:
Photo of your both together...
lovey - dovey style!
and the next:
Remember all the sweetness you each stand for.
The tin was filled with all sorts of yummy sweetness!
The last tag read:
Record all your valentine days together.
Seriously how sweet was that! Such thought and kindness and it forever endeared her even further into my heart and I just know we will be good friends. I hope one day to meet her.
