The package was Seattle-themed and included:
– 2 packages of Sahale almond snacks {cranberries, sesame seeds & honey flavor and parmesan cheese & herbs flavor}
Market Spice cinnamon orange tea
– a package of Summer Berries fruit candy {delicious!!}
– two chocolate bars that I devoured immediately: coconut curry chocolate and orange dark chocolate

Thank you so much, Soozcat!

I sent a care package to my new blogger friend Becca at beesweetsurrender — she’s going to do a guest post recipe on here next week! I’m so excited to introduce you all to her. She is an incredible baker and her blog is a treasure trove of delicious recipes!

Happy weekend! What treats are you loving this month?

This was my second month participating in Foodie Pen Pals through The Lean Green Bean, one of my favorite blogs! Here’s how it works: you visit The Lean Green Bean and enter your contact info to sign up for the next month of Foodie Pen Pals. Then the amazing Lindsay matches you up with two other bloggers or food lovers: one person to send a foodie package to, and one person who will send a package to you! Then you spend $15 putting together a box of fun, yummy treats for your pen pal, pop it in the mail, and eagerly await the arrival of your own foodie package!

Natalie from In Natalie’s Shoes sent me a package this month. She sent me a box filled with delectable goodies:
