So about this Cara Box. The Cara Box Exchange was started by Kaitlyn over at Wifessionals as a way to "Make Friends... Receive Gifts...Share Encouragement" as her button for the exchange states. My first time participating in the Exchange I was paired with Ashley from Our Mitchell Moments and Maddie from My Saturday Smiles. All of us were newbies to the Cara Box Exchange and had no idea what to expect. The theme for this month's box was "Seasons of Life" and we were supposed to make a box for our partners that captured the essence of who they are.
I had to send a box to Ashley and immediately upon e-mailing her I knew that we would become AMAZING friends. Ashley was so easy to talk to and I loved hearing about her beautiful baby girl as well as all the other little things going on in her life. We e-mailed back and forth A LOT and I really feel like I was able to create a box that was simply her... a box dedicated to her love for her family!
I received a box from Maddie who is a talented artist... you should check out her Etsy shop here... especially if you have little girls! She has some phenomenal artwork that if I had a little girl I would totally love to put in her room. Maddie is way more creative than I am and she definitely put together a box that will hopefully get my creative genes flowing a bit more!

My box included a little chalkboard that says "I love you because..." and some chalk so that MD and I can write messages to each other letting each other know why we love each other on any particular day. She also gave me a journal and pen where I can write down anything related to MD & I.... so that we can remember why it is that we love each other and what it is that we are doing together. I love that she decorated the notebook with red, white and blue ribbon as my favorite football team is the NYG. I also got some really cute coasters that I plan on using during football season!
Overall my first experience with the Cara Box was wonderful and I am looking forward to getting to know my new partners for the next box!
