My First #CaraBox: My Name Is...

MEGHAN!

[That's my name, in case you were wondering ;) ]  

I saw a few friends participating in Kaitlyn of Wifessional's #CaraBox last month, and I just had to join in.  If you haven't seen this exchange yet, check out this link and join in next month!
Cara Box
I have to say I that I had a great experience.  This month's theme was "My name is..." and we were all paired by our names.  It also worked as a round robin, so I got to meet two great bloggers instead of just one!  I gave a box to Mallory at Mal's Miles and received one from Megalin at Turquoise Lollipops.  Each box had a theme of the letter "M" since we are all M girls!

Now about what I received from Megalin: as many of you know, it's been a hard month for me.  Megalin seriously could have just sent me the beautiful note she wrote me in an envelope and I would have been more than thrilled.  It was so heartfelt.  I have it in my planner and look at it everyday :)


Well, she did send me more, and boy did she splurge!  And she wrapped it all so beautifully too!  Muffin Mix, an "M" for my room, Milano Melts, a Meghan Mug, Magnets, and KitchenAid Measuring spoons were all so Me!  I guess our 30 something emails back and forth helped her out a bit ;)






[the mug says "Borrowed Heaven" on the other side too]

Here are the items in use!  Making muffins, the measuring spoons and mug match my kitchen perfectly, the M looks great in my bedroom, Roxy wants to share my Milanos, and I especially love the honey magnet :)


Here is a preview of what I sent Mallory; go check out her blog to see what M goodies there were! 


So, today, I'm linking up with Kaitlyn to reveal my Cara Box and the usual ladies for Wednesday Walkabout!

Your box turned out great! I'm so glad you chose to participate this month! I would have loved too, but I knew my month would be busy and I'd be out of town and I just wasn't going to be able to put in as much love as I would have liked! I'll be joining in for April though, so I'm excited! :) Glad this was a little sunshine on your rainy days lately!
