the 2012 mugswappy.

the second annual mug swap was a highlight of my summer.
i loved seeing everyone's pictures pop up on instagram.
if you didn't do it this year, do it next year! it was such a blast and i feel like everyone met new people!

i was given one of my good blog friends to buy a mug for.
i seriously loved shopping for her.
i will let her tell you all about it.

anyway, as if buying for jami wasn't enough, i got the coolest package in the mail.
from my new friend lesley
i love her!
she knows how i feel about the USPS.

okay so she wrote me the cutest little card and included all these vintage california goodies.
so cute.
and she went to anthropologie....i mean, we all know i love anthropologie.
and gave me the sweetest mug ever. i just love it so much.

oh hey. that chalkboard is looking kinda gross.
time to re-do.

anyway. let me tell you guys my favorite part of the whole package.
lesley painted me this amazing card to match my mug.
she said, "sorry i don't know how to sew!"
um...lesley...i am NOT SORRY you don't know how to sew.
i am SO GLAD you don't know how to sew.
i love it so much.
she even went onto my about me page that desperately needs to be updated,
and got the verse i posted off of it.
sweetest. thing. ever.

lesley has the cutest blog...with the cutest family.
and she has a sweet etsy shop.
go check her out. i like her.

i had a ball doing the mug swap.

it was definitely a summer highlight.
i can't wait til next year!!
