Awhile back, I was reading Erin's blog, Living In Yellow, and saw mention of an ornament swap.
I thought it sounded fun...sort've like Pen Pal meets Secret Santa.
I pretty much signed up immediately.
Here's the breakdown:
I would be assigned a person to send an ornament to, and someone ELSE would be assigned to send me an ornament.
That meant everyone was sending out an ornament, and everyone would then be receiving an ornament from someone different...
all while meeting some new (wonderful) bloggers.
It was a win-win.
I purchased the ornament, contacted Kristin from Rare Nonsense (the blogger I was assigned to send my ornament to) to get her mailing information, and sent the ornament on its merry way.
A few weeks later, guess what was sitting on my front porch?
That's right, my ornament!
It was like Christmas morning.
I was straight up PUMPED.
I brought the box inside and opened it up to find this:
I opened the card first, to find a monogrammed front
(how personal!) and a sweet message inside:
Then carefully opened the wrapped ornament...
to find this:
This past weekend we put up our Christmas decorations (which obviously included the beloved tree), so I could hang this beauty proudly for all the world to see:
A HUGE thank you to Kristin from Young & Southern for mailing me the most adorable ornament.
I love my ornament and will have a fun memory to tie with it forever.
