How could you be friends with someone you have never met?
I get asked that question often enough by others in my life who don’t totally get blogging or making connections with others all of the country and world, too.
I didn’t realize myself before blogging that you could become friends with and share so much with other people that indeed you haven’t come face-to-face with in real life.
But I must admit I have been so very lucky in this department, getting to indeed know quite a few other bloggers and have many out there that I very much consider my friends. I know I have shared this sentiment here before, but still amazes me and really does make me feel blessed by this.
Over the course of the last year or so, I got close with a few select bloggers. Seven of us have bonded over shared experiences and have formed wonderful friendships from this.
The seven of us organized a Secret Santa back last year and if you missed my article on this, click here.
After how successful our Secret Santa went, we collectively decided to do a Secret Seven Swap for each season (4 times a year) with each other.
Since it is March and Spring is indeed in the air, this time out was our Spring Swap and today I am sharing all about the Secret Seven Spring Swap.
Who was my Secret Seven Swap partner?
Sara from Confessions of A Red-Headed Mama
Sara and I have been friends for over a year now and to find out how our sweet friendship started, keep reading now!
And by the way, it is times like these that I do very much feel indeed very much blessed that I am a blogger who has great friends, because I must say Sara truly knows me and picked out the perfect selection for me. She truly is not only a great friend, but also very observant when she reads my blog with the package below she sent me.
Honestly the selection above was seriously, absolutely perfect and from start to finish, Sara truly picked out all stuff that I love and would totally get myself if I were to go shopping.
I absolutely could not get over the adorable Birdhouse Cookie Kit, Sara sent me and as soon as I opened the box with my girls, they were sold. They wanted to put it together immediately, but it was late Tuesday morning when we got the package, so the girls had school about an hour after. So, I told them we would definitely do it as a family when Kevin was home on the weekend.
As soon as I laid eyes on the Pink Peeps, I couldn’t help, but smile. First and foremost, Sara was the recipient of my Peeps Recipes and Giveaway post last year here. And then the pink color she hand picked for me was absolutely perfect, because she knows just as many others that read my blog and know me that I am addicted to the color pink and seriously am the pink girl from way back when I shared that here. And trust me this box didn’t last long before I dug in and sampled these little pink heavenly marshmallows!
Next up, were these absolutely green-tastic shamrock straws, because Sara knows that we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in our house to the fullest with Kevin being 100% Irish from my St. Patrick’s Day recipe post from the past year, too here. These totally had my wanting to sing, “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling”, because they seriously were so cute and can’t wait to put them to good use like for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration here.
I actually never mentioned this here, but recently I decided to try this lip blame for myself, because I tend to get dry, chapped lips during the colder weather. When my girls saw mine, they wanted one for themselves as well. I caved and bought them each one, too. And all three of us are addicted to these awesome lip balms. So, when I saw this package of lip balm, I was amazed at how Sara got this one totally right, even though as I said I never mentioned here or to her once.
Now that I shared my Secret Seven Spring Swap today, I just want to thank Sara again and tell her that I am truly thankful we are friends once again.
Thank you Sara!!
Also, want to share a few more pictures of the bird house that we finally put together two weekends ago now, too!!
