Wife, Mummy, Nurse: First Cara Box

18 November 2013

First Cara Box

When I was younger, one of my favorite things was sending and receiving letters. I had at least six different pen pals from various places in the country and world-3 in the US, 1 from Canada, 1 from Northern Ireland {a second cousin}, and 1 in France. When I saw Wifessionals organizes a quarterly e-mail/gift box exchange, I decided to jump at the chance. This was my first time participating. We are given two people to communicate with. The first, we are to get to know them and send a package to that individual. The second, we get to know them and receive a package from her.

Amy from New Mom Problems sent me my box. Upon opening it, I noticed that everything comes from Target. I LOVE Target! It's one of my favorite stores, and I go there at least weekly. In my box, I received

  • A notebook. I collect notebooks/journals. It's so much fun {and embarrassment} to see what I read, was struggling with, learned, etc. 
  • Pumpkin spice coffee. Gotta have my cup of jo.
  • An Autumn Harvest candle. The scent is amazing, but I have not started burning it because I want to finish my pumpkin candle.
  • A pumpkin tea towel
  • And CHOCOLATE. Sadly, it's all gone.

I sent a box over to Natalie; she blogs at Sweetie's Studio. If you want to see what I sent her and her thoughts, read here.

Overall, I had a good experience with the Cara Box and hope to sign up again on December 2.


  1. Looks like an awesome box! I cant wait to sign up again!! & thanks again for my box :)


    if anyone wanted to see what you got me, that's the link :)

  2. Oh Target! I could buy one of everything when I'm there :) This was my first Cara Box as well, and I loved it! I think one of my very favorite things is to go back and read old journals :) Happy Monday!

  3. That notebook is adorable! I love Target too!!

  4. That's really cool! I feel like this would be a great thing to get involved in while my husband is deployed. What's better than getting to know someone new and then receiving a gift at the end? And moreso, you get to create something beautiful for them too! That's so awesome! Thanks for sharing! :)
