This month I participated in the May Cara Box Exchange. 

It is a monthly gift swap where you pair up with two different ladies. You send a gift to one girl and receive a gift from a different person.
Each month is a new theme. This month's theme was to send something from your region.
Awesome things in the mail + Meeting new women + Encouragement = Cara Box

This month I got to meet two fabulous women. I sent a gift to Brittany. To see what I sent her click here

I received a gift from Laura. She is stationed with her husband in Japan. 

Laura included some really awesome things from Japan:
Kokeshi doll magnets:  One of the most famous Japanese souvenirs. (Which are now on my fridge)
Sakura Hand Fan- In Japan these date back to the 6th century, the folding fan was invented in Japan. Sakura is the name for "cherry blossum" in Japanese.
Omiyage- Candies or other edibles that serve as souvenirs.

The Cara Box she sent me was SO thoughtful! I loved everything in it.
It was such a joy to get to know these two awesome ladies!


  1. Yay! i'm so glad you enjoyed it!! :D

  2. this is pretty awesome. I have far too much going on in June, but i may have to check this out come july :)

  3. aw I've never signed up for a cara box exchange but I might need to soon!

  4. What a great month to have an international partner :D

  5. Such a cute gift :) May was my first month participating (I got my box from Brittany, actually) and I think it's fun to see what everyone got and how they tied in the month's theme.
