Jenny was assigned me for the 2013 Cuppa Kim Mug Swap. She took the time to find out that I value creativity and she drew a mountain scene and inspiring message on the mug. A message that I need to remember: to have faith in the face of mountains.
She sent me some sunflower seeds too - because that's all the faith you need to move mountains, faith the size of a seed.
A journal to reflect on my faith journey = perfect.
And finally, she included a bag of whole bean coffee that is local to her, a nod to my collection of coffee mugs from various places we've visited.
How sweet is that?!
I love giving things and I so enjoyed shopping for my assigned mug buddy. I was a little bit stressed about it though, to be honest, because I knew what she said she liked, but I wasn't sure what that was exactly. I knew I didn't want to get something white because she already had a set of white mugs. So I got what I got and I hoped for the best.
I added some other small items that a coffee drinker would appreciate. I saw that she had a Keurig, so I sent some K cups in the package. And I made a coffee sleeve for her. I was so happy when I saw her Instagram post come across my feed, showing me that it arrived all in one piece, along with her comment saying she loved it.
What a fun thing, to give/get care packages to/from complete strangers. And to shop for coffee mugs and get a coffee mug in the mail. Because if my cupboard is any indication, a girl can never have too many coffee mugs.
I'm already on the look out for mugs for next year...
