swapping mugs {MUG SWAP 2014}


I recently got to take part in a really fun and simple Mug Swap {I did it last year too}. The lovely Kim @ ACUPPAKIM hosted her annual swap again this year {over 1,ooo people signed up to swap mugs with strangers all over the country} to my delight! It’s pretty simple. You buy a mug and some goodies for someone and another gal does it for you. I got to shop for and surprise a sweet Mama in Texas. I tried to find things that fit her life, interests and favorite sweets. and of course i found a mug for her. I was totally spoiled by a different Mama in Southern California.¬†Sharon totally got me. She must have a gift for giving gifts. It was really fun to get to know these two ladies through their social media accounts. I also loved the chance to give a total stranger some special goodies {just for her}!

Beyond just the swap Kim asked us to donate money to a friends adoption fund this year and seemed to raise a bundle for this sweet family. There were even some great giveaways! It was a fun experience yet again this year.

So here is what I gave & what I got!

Dear Miss Sharon,
I do not have words to describe how well you understood and blessed me with the #mugswap2014 loot you sent my way.¬† First of all the mug is gorgeous and totally my style. The dark chocolate and candy for the kids…to die for. The Katy Daisy print is so perfect for our home and simply divine! And honestly I cannot believe how adorable the California onesie is for my Blake. Each member of our little family has one and now he will too. Did you make it? Wow. So thoughtful! Thank you a million times over for such a gift {and truly a gesture of very thoughtful loveliness from a practical stranger}! I look forward to getting to know you better through IG!
Love, *laura* {everydayVALENTINE}
