i love getting care packages.

Friday, November 26, 2010

thank you jessica and patrick!
(my family in alaska.)

the other day, i looked out of my window
and saw a DSL truck in front of the house.
a man was carrying a package to the door.
i thought, "oh, i wish that package was for me."
but figured it was for my landlords.
whenever i came downstairs
and saw a giant box sitting at the foot of the stairs
addressed to me,
i almost screamed.

 i took every item out of the box so slowly
saying ,"oh my gosh, i love this!"
in response to each little gift.



- 2 boxes cupcake of mix, icing, sprinkles and cupcake paper
(i have not been eating desserts very much here at all
and i crave them all the time!)
- fireweed honey and blueberry jam
(my favorite alaskan products!)
- reese's
(can't get those over here! i miss them dearly.)
- moose-shaped pasta
(any kind of free food is my kind of gift.)
- campbell's soup
(see above subtext.)
- tea & hot cocoa
(it's freeeeezing here so this is necessary.)
- chocolate covered peanuts
(i am saving these for the next time i make trail mix!)
- a sweater
(which i have already worn.)
- a card
(with notes from both of them & polaroids attached.)
- a power bar
(already ate it)

i'd be lying if i said the cupcake mixes weren't my favorite part.
thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The fact that they sent all that stuff to you is the sweetest thing I've ever seen!! Love you Jessica & Patrick (and Gus)!!

so glad you got it! the power bar and energy stuff were kind of last minute random items that patrick threw in from the kitchen. :) see you soon! <3

how sweet! unexpected packages (especially when you are far from home and ones that are filled with familiar things you miss) are the best!!!
