I am so excited to share about my experience with the Cara Box Exchange. If you want to know more about the Cara Box Exchange, click on the button at the bottom of my post. This box’s theme was “Fall”. You were supposed to get to know your partner and fill a box with a bunch of items that centered around everything they love about this season.
Linda is an incredible person with this infectious energy that you can completely sense in the way she writes. I could hear her gabbing to me over the phone like old girlfriends in each email she’d send me. She lives in Missouri, which was crazy to find out since Chase and I just moved from there! I loved getting to know her and creating a Fall themed box for her centered around keeping warm this season. I love Linda’s positivity and willingness to let life take her wherever it will. She has a fun filled marriage with her husband Kody, and together I know they are going to accomplish big things! It was amazing how close we were able to get and share some really neat things together. If you want to “meet” her and see what I sent her, go check out her blog.
Charlene was paired to send me a box and I really enjoyed getting to know her as well. Ironically she is from the south – a Georgia girl – and understands what it feels like to move far away from family to support her husband in school. They are such a sweet couple and started dating in high school (just like me and Chase!). I can’t tell you how amazing it was to see all the similarities I had with these two girls unfold over time. Charlene was really intentional in getting to know me and it showed in the box she sent. I got my Cara Box on a Friday night as I was arriving home from work. It was such a blessing to have a pick-me up as I was thinking about how many more weekends alone I had before Chase returned. I am so thankful for the friendship I have with Charlene and the sweet box she put together for me.
She knows how much I love to cook, so the fall themed pot holders and dish towels are perfect for getting ready for Thanksgiving. The pumpkin candles are so nice for filling up my house with a yummy scent, and the cute cup is perfect for a post run smoothie! I love the nail polish she chose for me – very neutral and goes with anything. I love the scarf and have warn it several times as the weather is definitely getting cold.
Probably one of my favorite things of the box are the leopard print house shoes she sent me! They are SO cozy and warm! I love slipping them on after I wake up on weekends. I pretty much don’t take them off until it is time to go to bed on Sunday!
(plus they go perfectly with my warmest jammies!)
I really loved participating in the Cara Box Exchange and definitely suggest it for anyone (blogger or not!)
