Even though I have been doing Foodie Pen Pals for 6 months now, I am no less excited now when my box arrives than I was at the beginning.
This month I received a box from Krista from Alaska who blogs over at MissCellaneous. This was one of the most personalized and thoughtful boxes I've received. Krista really spent some time getting to know me and picked items especially for me.
My box included some super yummy locally roasted coffee (because I told her I love coffee), coconut water (because I am a runner), lingonberry syrup (because I said I like to try local specialties), healthy pumpkin chocolate cookies (because I have a sweet tooth), a sea salt chocolate bar from Madacasgar (because she saw on my blog I am planning to run there next year), a stunning photo she took on a hike that made me want to go to Alaska, and a homemade pink dishcloth (for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and because I love pink)
