After I came across Kristin at Vignette's a few months ago though, when she announced she was orchestrating a fall blog swap, I decided - why not join in? I love fall!
I was paired up with Beth over at Our Journey's Beginning. Both Beth and I are expecting a baby - though she's a bit closer to meeting her little one than I am. It was so fun exchanging e-mails and blogs with someone I had never met or come across before. Beth lives all the way over in Virginia, where unlike myself, she gets to see the trees changing colors and experiences a more legitimate autumn than what I have to manufacture down here deep in the heart of Texas.
The shopping was maybe the best part - but only because I love shopping for goodies so much. We were given a $20 budget and it's amazing what you can find when you look for deals. I made Beth a mini-fall wreath and found some fun fallish things to send her way - like a yummy smelling apple pie candle, a fun scarf, nail polish and some fun things to use for baking. I had a blast shopping and getting her box together.
Mine arrived over the weekend!
So, thanks to my new friend Beth for spoiling me with goodies. And to Kristin for hosting such a fun swap. Maybe they'll be another one for Christmas?
