it all started when anna, of anna's creative corner, posted this photo on the instagram. i made some comment about how i was jealous of all that black licorice, one thing led to another, and we had organized a us/uk treat exchange!
i had a lot of fun picking out treats to send:
everything was from us companies and made in the us, with the exception of the mini chewy sweettarts, which are made by nestle... but they're my complete and total favorite candy, so i had to send them! (the little red car was for anna's son luke. that was part of the deal - a little something for the kiddos.)
when i got back from the lake i had this waiting for me:
i will admit to squealing and doing a small dance of joy before even opening it!
anna most definitely did not disappoint:
not one, but *three* bags of black licorice!! those i kept for myself (mostly because lily and brian don't like black licorice, i would have shared a little if they had wanted...) but the rest i shared, and anna sent a london underground notebook and colored pencil set for lily (which she loves!)
can you guess which item i opened first?!?
yummy! yummy! yay!!!
thank you anna for such a fun swap!
