For May, the boxes had a regional theme: find things your partner would enjoy that are from/manufactured in/reflect your state of residence. I was thrilled. I've only been in Maryland since 2008, but thanks to Sean's over the top Maryland pride, I felt more equipped to pack a Maryland themed box than I would have been to pack one from my native Virginia. Yikes.
I was paired up with Aleshea and Claire this month and absolutely loved them both!
Aleshea resides in Texas and shares my love for Jesus and a glass of sweet tea! My kind of girl.
You can see what I sent her here. Any Marylanders reading, I will ease your concern and assure you that Old Bay was, in fact, included in her box.
Claire lives in North Carolina and is very thorough and artistic. She has her own etsy shop, so I was excited to see what her creativity would produce. Here's what she came up with:
|Everything was wrapped so cute in pretty colors with notes explaining each item.|
|Gorgeous wildflowers grow down south, but since they wouldn't last, she made me pretty permanent ones...with cupcake wrappers! How cute! ignore the ugly junk in the background.|
|Cookies! Half of them were gone day one!|
|Turns out creativity is a family trait. Claire's sister, who also has an etsy shop, made this necklace.|
|cute vintage postcards with impressions of the state|
|The Avett Brothers are from NC. A little country, a little folksy...a nice long CD for relaxing on the road.|
Another great month. Bloggers and non-bloggers are alike, so feel free to sign up to join in the fun for June!
