January Cara Box :: Resolutions

Hello friends!

Well, we made it home from sunny Mexico last night. First off a big Thank You to Casey, Kaitlyn, Natasha, Jane and Meg for holding down the blog with their wonderful guest posts last week.
While I go through the 500+ photos we snapped here's a little teaser.

We made it!

Now for the Cara Box swap + reveal details!

November I signed up  for my first Cara Box swap over at Wifessionals and loved it. It's a fun way to get to know other bloggers from various cities and states! (psst...miss past Cara Box posts? Here's November & December)

This month I was partnered with Angela from Selfless Ambition & Claudia from Sweet Little Momma.  I got to know Angela and sent her a few treats (to see the goodies I sent, check out her blog here). Claudia got to know me and created a special package to keep me going with my 2013 “resolutions,” the theme for  January. She’s a new mom and new to blogging!

There's something about receiving mail that brings a smile to my face. I love handwritten notes and part of the exchange is to include a written a letter of encouragement. Love it!

I shared with Claudia how I wanted to get more into photography and bought a new camera, how I love traveling however slowed down since purchasing a house and want to travel more and of course more DIYing.

She put together some hot coco packs for Mr. and I. So tasty!

A frame for a photo. Maybe one from our honeymoon?!

A recordable photo album - very cool!

One can never have enough sunscreen.

..... and the best smelling candle (beachside)! Makes me want to head to a tropical island!

Thank you Claudia, I loved everything!
