One afternoon, I returned home from work to a package on my door step. I was pretty sure that, based on the size of the box, that it was our Secret Santa presents. BUT then I looked at the return address label and noticed that it was from Kansas. And a bunch of thoughts went through my head - did I read the matches wrong? Maybe Desiree wasn't really my partner? I was confused! So I opened the package and was hoping to read the card to find out who it really was from when it had a note to me on it - "open me last". Oh no!!! The suspense. So, I waited until Mason got home from school and
Mason and I can't thank Desiree, Marcus, and Julia enough... THANK YOU!!! We LOVE it all! And Desiree also pulled off an amazing surprise! Even though I knew who my partner was, she totally surprised me when the box came from Kansas. I mean, how sweet was it for her to go on vacation, bring her box, and remember to send it from there just to surprise me?! She's the best!
Mason and I were partnered with Michelle and her child. Unfortunately she doesn't have a blog and her Instagram is private, so I can't link you to her, (which in turn also meant that I didn't know her kid's name - eek! sorry!) but I will tell you that we sent her some books that we love ourselves! For the mama, I sent The Husband's Secret. I saw this book originally when I still worked at the bookstore and actually have a copy myself. I rarely have time to read, but one day I hope to be able to read this book. It sounds so interesting! And then for the kiddo, Mason and I chose Olive, the other Reindeer. It's one of our favorite Christmas books and we knew they would love it too!
Now, link up with us below and show us the goodies that you got! I'm always looking for new books (at least for Mason's library and for my... collection? haha).
