After transferring to his magazine’s Brazilian office, Sam doesn’t have many friends, and he’s preparing for a lonely holiday. But between his gorgeous coworker James and a last-minute surprise, things might come together in a wonderful way.

@JenlovesJT47 The package arrived today and was totally worth the wait! I'm excited to get started reading and munching on all the snacks. I love, love, love the reading log and only hope I can hold out until next year to use it. The tote bag and everything is perfect. Thanks so much!!!!

Post 2 of 2. And here‘s all the other ‘goodies‘ from @kaysworld1 ....

The seeds are just perfect as I like to watch the 🐝 in my garden so I try to be 🐝 friendly!

Love all the bookmarks - my husband has already commandeered the fire engine one! 😁

But my favourite HAS to be the key ring - it‘s so thoughtful of you! 🐿😘

Thank you sooo much for such wonderful gifts!

kaysworld1 I'm glad you like it all 🌼 I really enjoyed shopping for this one to make it personal 💖 1mo

Thank you so much to @kaysworld1 for my fabulous #ssgp goodies! These are ‘just‘ the books as I couldn‘t fit everything onto one photo...

I‘ve been wanting to read Cutting for Stone for ages so that‘s going to go on holiday with me in 2 weeks. Krakauer is new to me and I bought one of his the other day, but not this one! 😁 The Alienist looks like it‘s set in NYC so perfect for me!

And as for the colouring book... ❤️🐿❤️🐿❤️🐿❤️🐿

TrishB You‘ll love Cutting for Stone! 1mo
Cathythoughts I have Cutting For Stone too ... I‘ve yet to read it 1mo

Thank you to @cwarnier for a spectacular #SummerSantaGoesPostal package! I love everything! Can‘t wait to read the books and use the pens, post-its, and bags. I actually just broke my favorite glass, so the new summer ones are perfect. My daughter tried to steal the flip-flops, but that‘s not going to happen! 😆

And a heartfelt thank you to @BookishMarginalia for once again organizing a great swap. Your efforts are greatly appreciated! ❤️

So, true story. I accidentally opened my package yesterday thinking it was the 21st. Then when I grabbed my phone to take a pic of the cute wrapping, I saw the date. 🤦🏻‍♀️ So I took this and put it all back. But now my sister is sleeping in the living room and I have to wait for her to get up 😖 I just wanted to let @Amandajoy know I didn‘t forget and that I LOVE all the llama stickers. I can‘t wait to see what‘s inside. #summersantagoespostal

Amandajoy Ha! I might have opened it anyway and waited to post a picture. I‘m sure it was the 21st somewhere in the world! Did you get the card I sent? I forgot to include it so I had send it separately... 1mo
JamieLou @Amandajoy I‘m totally the person that opens things ASAP and then pretends like I didn‘t 😂 but I told myself I would wait just this once so I felt like I had to. I did get the card! Super cute, thank you. Good luck wedding planning!! 1mo

So excited for the Wavy Lays. I will have to hide them from Josh. I‘m fat and he‘s a diabetic so we don‘t keep junk food in our house (to my brothers horror). I have some cottage cheese these will go perfect with. 😁 my taste buds are anticipating the salt.

Is it weird I‘m so excited over chips?

I received my #summersantagoespostal box today! Chance had to sniff it and rub on it a few times 😻 @monalyisha @BookishMarginalia

monalyisha Excellent! There should be a big ol‘ envelope coming, too! 1mo
monalyisha Hello! Just checking to see if the second part of your swap has arrived? 1mo
Kappadeemom @monalyisha yes it did! Thank you! (Sorry - been out of town!) 1mo
monalyisha @kappadeemom That‘s okay! Glad it got there. I was kind-of nervous because I stuck a card inside & I wasn‘t supposed to (since I sent it media mail). 😉🤫 1mo

My #summersantagoespostal package went out today! The postal workers weirdly would not let me take photos (🙄) so here is a pic of the post office instead! ☀️📚👋🏼

@BookishMarginalia

VanChocStrawberry That‘s weird. Huh. 1mo

A little behind on mailing my swaps due to being out of town (and too disorganized to mail before!) but they are going out tomorrow. #mysterymessageswap #summersantagoespostal
