Hey everyone! I literally just got home from work…and I couldn’t be happier. My worst fears came true and I woke up this morning (after only 2 hours of sleep) at 4:30 and all of the congestion in my chest moved up to my head. My nose was completely stuffed, my head was aching, sinuses completely congested. I literally felt like my head was going to explode. And I knew I had a long day ahead of me. I was completely exhausted.
The day was long but the couple was very sweet. Truth be told I came on right away so I could post then rest for the remainder of the evening.
As I mentioned yesterday, I participated in Lindsay’s CVL Vegan Care Package Swap for the first time, and I’m so glad I decided to do it! I was partnered up with the lovely Isobelle over at vganjar and I must say it was a perfect match! We seem to have very similar tastes and preferences AND as icing on the gluten free cake, she lives just outside of Seattle…where I lived for a year and a half in grad school! Small world
I received my package yesterday and I think it was perfect timing…almost like a combo birthday/get well package. It definitely cheered me up! So without further ado, here are the goodies that Isobelle spoiled me with!
I was first greeted with this super pretty handmade note. I am so lucky to have been paired up with such a talented artist!
This is more of a side note but my goodies were cushioned in pages of the Tacoma Weekly, and this caught my eye! An article about a vegan coffee house!
This is a view of all of the loot. I broke it down into smaller chunks so you can see everything.
A few non-edibles. Some amazing smelling soaps (I could smell it through the paper!) and some super cute magnets from Seattle/Washington.
The far left is a jar of Chocolatl, a raw chocolate maca sauce (yum!), then a box of sweet and spicy herbal tea, a jar of Peanut butter & Co. Smooth Operator PB, and a bag of gluten free flour to experiment with!
Here is a packet of green superfood protein powder, a bag of Mrs. May’s Black Sesame snacks (can’t wait to try these!!!), an Endangered Species chocolate bar in a chocolate mint flavor (on of my favorite combos!) and 2 larabars (apple pie and chocolate chip cookie dough).
Finally, a maple pecan oat bar which I’m probably most excited to try, and a Bumble Bar in a Chai with Almond flavor (another combo of some of my favorite flavors!).
As you can see, I’ve been completely spoiled by Isobelle. I hope that she likes her package as much as I like mine! Thank you so much Isobelle!!
And now I’m off to rest and drink tea. Good night everyone!
