Fall Cara Box

Cara, meaning beloved friend. This box exchange was started by Kaitlyn at Wifessionals. She has been running an exchange for fellow bloggers to get to know one another and send each other gifts.
The theme for this exchange was fall. We were supposed to get to know our partners and send them the things they would love about fall.
I really got lucky with the people I was paired up with, and both of my partners wound up being sisters! Small world, isn't it?

My person was Tanya who blogs over at The Baksha Five. I really enjoyed getting to know her as well as learn about her family. We are actually more alike than you would think. I really made a connection with her, and really admire her faith, and the strength she has in God and for her family. She is really raising wonderful children and being the best she can be. I felt she really needed something special this fall, so that is what I did for her, and I really enjoyed doing it. I feel that fall is the season of giving, and I get much joy out of giving to people, especially when I don't have to. I really hope she enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed putting it together for her. Now, I really wish I would have taken some pictures of the final product, but I am sure you will see some featured on her blog.


Tanya's sister Tina over at Me for a While was my other partner. She is a busy working mom with boys, and was a sweetheart. I also enjoyed getting to know her and about her love for Halloween and S'mores. Learning about her boys and their costumes this year, and about her day to day activities was enjoyable. Her box arrived just at the right time. We were all having a day at the office, and my coworkers and I love opening these together! It is always a breath of fresh air and the perfect distraction from a hectic day.

She sent me the cutest fall printable!



Along with a turkey coloring activity, and lots of Halloween goodies for Baby Bear. Nail polish, the infamous Happy Thanksgiving sign I have hanging on my Christmas Tree.



I also received pinecones for a fun craft for Baby Bear and I.



She also sent a crock pot recipe that was one of her family favorites. I have yet to try it because things have been so hectic! Oh, and I cannot forget the big campfire marshmallows that were also sent. I hope we can get around an open fire soon so we put these to good use. Thank you so much for everything you did for us Tina.
