When I walked up to my door and saw a small little package smiling up at me, I knew instantly it was my new mug. A complete stranger picked out the prettiest mug for me. What is so great is that I would have totally picked it out for myself, but never would have bought it because I rarely buy cute-for-no-reason-whatsoever stuff for myself. Thank you so much Ashley!
Doesn't it look great in my hand?
I also had fun picking out a mug for Megan. Thinking it would be a fairly easy process, I waited until the last minute to do my shopping. I carried around five mugs and finally forced myself to just choose! This sweet little daisy mug captured my attention.
Tazo tea needed to be included because I'm not a fan of coffee.
While packing it up I giggled at myself almost continuously because I'm just not crafty.
I didn't want it to break and it looked very unstable in the box so I added some not so earth friendly styrofoam. The mess I made is very indicative of my real life.
But, I didn't want my new mug friend to be greeted by ugly cut up styrofoam so I threw some festive ribbon on top.
Whew. I'm dorky and I know it. Don't pity me.
Thanks for hosting, Kim! It was great fun. You've inspired me for some great fun within my own community.
Each year I'm blessed to lead the women of my church on a retreat to seek Jesus, laugh together, and get away from every day life. Every year each woman brings her own mug for coffee, tea, or chai. This year, I'm asking everyone to bring a new or vintage mug and we will spend an hour or so engaged in a white elephant type exchange. Won't that be wonderful? Don't judge me, but I've already bought three. I wonder which one I should use?!
