… to me!


Care packages are always so exciting and encouraging for us, but we’ve never gotten one so soon after arriving back in China before! It was a great reminder that the folks back home aren’t going to forget us. And a fun present to come in the mail just two days before my birthday!

I opened it at lunch and read through the 1970’s cookbook while I ate, picking out recipes to try soon. I’m excited about the other vintage books too – I love used books and so it’s fun to get some in the mail! And we’re of course also thrilled about all the other books & magazines (I really love to read!), the beauty products (yes, the deodorant will be very useful for this stinky Mama!!), and all the foods… if you can’t tell, we’d already starting eating some of the snacks, and just put the packages back in the picture :-D Equally great are the photos and card, letter, and drawing. It’s SO nice to be connected with family!

Oh, and the booties for Tigger? I’ll post about those soon :-) Just a hint: she LOVES them!!

Thanks, Aunt Suzy and family!
