My Wrap up of Christmas in the Country 2014 Gift Exchange

Christmas in the Country 2014

I participated for the first time this year in the Christmas in the Country gift exchange. This was a great way to meet other bloggers around the country, and it was so fun! It's not just for bloggers though, any one could participate, and I am definitely going to do it again next year! #christmasinthecountry2014

This year I met 2 fantastic bloggers!

I received a gift box from Heather at: Double H Photopraphy She's a Rancher, A Journalist, A photographer.... the list goes on and on! She is one BUSY lady! I love her blog and the life she shares from Western South Dakota. Makes me miss my rural roots in Kansas!

She sent me a treasure trove of gifts! I feel she knows me so well already, and sent me just the perfect things to warm my heart!, She knew of my love for mason jars, cookbooks,devotionals, my new grandbaby... and threw in some extra's too!  The Calendar is full of her own beautiful photography!

Thanks Heather! Can't wait to keep in touch through our blogs and it was so great to meet you!


The other great blogger I met was Erin from Missouri and she blogs over at: Diaries From The Dirt Road. Erin not only just finished nursing school, she is also the reigning 2015 Missouri State Honey Queen. I love her adventures as she balances school, life, and spreading the important business of preserving our Honey Bee's.  

I had the opportunity to send a few gifts to her. I tried to send a little bit from the state of Virginia where I live, along with a few things i thought she might enjoy! I hope she did!

I hope you'll think about joining us next year! You don't have to be a blogger, anyone can join up and make new friends and spread a little Christmas Cheer
