Package Pals

A while ago the lovely Pia and I decided to send each other fun packages filled with goodies from our countries. (hers from Germany, and mine from USA) While mine is taking forever and a half to get to her, hers arrived within a few days! WOW! I was kind of shocked. haha!

It was so exciting to get this package in the mail yesterday. I opened it up and happiness came pouring out!

It was filled with the cutest journal (I've been needing a new one and just couldn't find one good enough, this one is perfect!! I'm so excited!), tons of Haribo candies and some Ritter chocolates. It's so fun to have someone from across the world to send goodies to. I highly recommend it!

Agreed. This is brilliant... But of course, I'd expect nothing less of you. :)

I wonder about organizing something similar to this on a larger scale?? Hmmm...

Awww, that is such a great idea! I'm a huge proponent of pen-palling but I think packages would be even more fun. And I love to get mail so I would be constantly checking the mailbox. Lol.

This is such a great idea!! I feel like "man, why have you never thought of that?"

Enjoy your goodies - I know how yummy they are ;)

Chablis said...

Really, good mail is so fun! Not one person in the world doesn't love getting good mail. SUCH a fun idea! It's the penpals of 2011. :)

Christi Lynn said...

this is such a cute idea! you are brilliant.

Ariana said...

OH MY! This post reminded me of penpals... ah the good 'ol days...

But that IS a great idea!

Megan said...

This is amazing! Not sure if you've ever heard of Postcrossing, but it's where people from all over the world send postcards to each other and say hello. Pretty neat. I love snail mail packages :)

Ashley @ LaLuce said...

what a unique idea! i love it!!! just found your blog and adore it, happily following!

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

happiness sure did come pouring out! what a great idea, so totally on the friendship tip, this is sweetest. good on ya for taking this idea and spreading it out to us all. i've done it a few times with blog friends and you're right, there's nothing quite like opening up a package from someone in the blogosphere. it's like they know you without really knowing you. blogging is waaaaaaaaaay better than facebook, i mean who wants a poke anyways ; ) baha! xoox ♥

Abbey said...
