My "Fair" Lady

I participated in my first ever Cara Box with host Kaitlyn from Wifessionals. The Cara Box is a monthly exchange where you're paired with two other bloggers: one to whom you send a box of goodies and the other who sends one to you. You get to know each of the other bloggers via "blog stalking" and emails. Everyone works within the month's theme and this month the theme was Fairs and Carnivals. The objective is to send at least five items that exemplify your bloggers personality and the theme. 

I was paired with Bri from Faithful Footprints and Wendy from Effie Girl. I'll say that it was a true pleasure getting to know each of these women and I'll be featuring both of them in upcoming posts so stay tuned. 

In the meantime, onto the Cara Box!

Cara Box

Even though I was expecting a package there's nothing like the day it arrives. Oftentimes, I get caught up in the hustle of life, but when I got home and discovered a box just for me, I was delighted. I was having guests over that same day so I set the box aside until I could devote my time and full attention to its content. I was bubbling with suspense and excitement until I was able to open it and I was not disappointed. Bri, did a fantastic job of embracing the theme and the box clearing exemplified my personality. 

Admittedly this theme was pretty difficult for our first Cara Box experience but Bri succeeded in giving the box a truly unique spin, and I loved it!

She divided the box into two fair themes. The first was a Health Fair:

And the second was a Family Trip to a Texas Fair:

How cute is she?!?! She clearly understood my personality and interests and I loved the numbered packages and each little explanation   

The final part of the Cara Box is a handwritten note of encouragement.

Bri, thank you so much for the thoughtful box of goodies. I loved your unique spin on the theme and I look forward to reading more about your faithful journey through life. 

If you're interested in participating in the Cara Box check out all the information here. It's open to blogger and non-bloggers. I encourage you to sign up and meet some wonderful women along the way!

Be Blessed,
