So as soon as Cat posted up about the swap I was in!
I was so excited when I received the name and details of the wonderful lady I was going to be gifting. She was someone completely new to me so that was pretty exciting too! I stalked her blog and put together 25 gifts for her and a combined gift for her 3 gorgeous children.
I posted her box off to her this morning.
I hope she likes her packages! I am feeling rather nervous about it!!
This morning the courier dropped off a BIG box of packages for me. I was sooo excited!!! Since we were on our way out the door for the school run I had to wait until I got home before I could open it!!
Inside were 25 gifts for me and one each or Riley & Abbey to open on Christmas day. They are going to be so excited when they get home to see they were included too!
There was a note in the box that said ...
Dear TracyAnd then there was an Advent Theme Sheet with a theme for each present. I will share these with you as I share the opening of the presents.
Welcome to your "Very Orange Advent". My goal in putting this together has been about making you smile everyday coming up to Christmas. I imagine this season must be bittersweet as you miss the presence of your 4th family member. I hope each day as you open a gift you will make the orange connection & you will feel loved and thought of. Wishing you a love-filled, peaceful advent season & a beautiful, wonder-filled Christmas
I don't know Miriam but I know of her. I have read her blog and seen her around quite a bit. She was also the person who I have been communicating with about my swap partner!!
Thanks soo much for your beautiful letter and I can't wait to open those gifts!!
Go check out Miriam's blog Create Hope Inspire.
Keep a watch come December for the daily posts about what Miriam has packaged up as well as what I sent to my Advent partner!
