Having a year under my belt already (and knowing what to expect), I was very excited for this year’s Mug Swap! Kim (from A Cuppa Kim) did a great job (once again) coordinating everything! HUGE thanks to her!!! This year she even included a little questionnaire for our swap partners to get to know us a bit better. I thought this was REALLY helpful and hope she continues to do this (hint, hint Kim).
I completely forgot to take pictures of the fun things I found for my swap partner. Her name is Angel and she blogs over at Living with Moxie. I stalked her instagram and blog like nobodies business, trying to get to know her better. I had so much fun shopping for her because I felt we had several things in common (making it pretty easy). I’ve really enjoyed getting to know her so far and look forward to getting to know her better as time goes on. She put a pic on instagram (of what I got her) that I’m stealing from her (hope you don’t mind Angel):
I received my mug last week and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I’ve had a really rough week with Brody starting back at preschool (because he’s had a really rough week). Poor kid. This was definitely “happy mail” when it arrived.
My mug is just perfect! I love the bright and cheery colors! I love the size and weight of it (yep, those things matter too). I love the shape of the mug (I have two other mugs already that are shaped similarly and they were my favorites…now I get to add another to the mix of favorites). A very sweet lady, named Melody, who blogs over at Melody Mae, had my name this year. She is beyond sweet and so thoughtful! We’ve become instagram friends and have emailed each other off and on already. I’m enjoying getting to know her better.
I already can’t wait for Mug Swap 2014. I think Kim needs to do half blog anniversary mug swaps as well.
