Fall Swag Swap

In the days of email, texting, and tweeting receiving a good ol' fashioned package in the mail is quite the lovely surprise. Especially when it's full of fall goodies. So, when I saw that the lovely ladies from Bourbon & Lipstick, Classy Sassy, Hey Kerri, All the Joys, How to Make a Life, and Set Free were hosting a Fall Swag Swap I knew I had to sign up!

My favorite aspect of blogging so far has no question been the connections I've made. It truly is such an open and embracing community full of intelligent and strong women. I consider some girls I've never met friends because I chat with them weekly. I've been fortunate to meet with Lindsay for coffee. Laugh and have a great time with all the girls from Eastern Kentucky Blogging Society and text, tweet, and email COUNTLESS other bloggers and readers. This swap allowed me to add one more connection to my list of gal pals---Morgan from Yellow Door Diaries.  We exchanged several emails getting to know one another and learned that we have lots in common such as our obsession with Criminal Minds, puppies, and cooking. Get this--she's even an event coordinator for law firms! 

Morgan couldn't have been more gracious and spot on with the swag swap items she sent me. 

I've already busted out the cute notebook and have been using it as a food journal to track my eating habits. Such a pain. How cute is the pendant drop necklace?? I'm always excited for new polish colors and you better believe that Starbucks card will be GONE very soon.

Morgan, thank you again, and I hope you enjoyed your swap goodies!

The blogging community isn't just about bloggers---readers too! I love hearing from non-blogger readers and always so flattered when I hear someone keeps up with my posts. I respond to all comments via email. If you haven't been receiving a reply from me it's because you're a No-Reply blogger. I'd love to chat with you so please follow this awesome tutorial to change your status in a few short minutes! Please don't be shy to comment I want to interact with each of you and hear your thoughts and ideas! 

What are your favorite goodies for Fall?
