Lookie what arrived today! My #thegreatwideopen swap! So wonderful to get it today on a rainy, yucky day when my husband is out of town and my teenager has abandoned me for his friends. I was feeling rather sorry for myself so it was lovely to find the box on my doorstep! Thank you @Alicia


Bookishthoughts Oooh what a great package!🙌💕 I loved 14mo

Bookzombie Can I ask about the “presents” on the wall? Did you wrap your pics for decor? If so, I love it. And I‘m looking at my walls now. 😁 14mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Bookzombie Yup! That's exactly what I did. 🎁 14mo

Dear Auntie @BookNAround
Thank you for my swapbox.
I love it, it‘s just my size and means I don‘t have to share with my brother and sister.
Love from

Thank you so much for such an amazingly thoughtful and wonderfully created box of gorgeousness @BookNAround I‘m so going to enjoy my literary tour of the south ahead of the big trip! You‘ve chosen amazing books and scrumptious snacks. Mint mash mellow- genius! And such a cute cat bookmark! Can‘t wait to dive into everything!

Mitch Ps... Mint Milano cookie are so scrumptious they‘ve almost disappeared! @BookNAround 14mo

LeahBergen Lovely! 14mo
BookNAround I hope you enjoy everything. I tried to find books that would pertain to your upcoming trip as well as some that were just too good to leave out. I have to admit I‘ve already read The Calculating Stars (waiting is not my strong suit) but I do have to read it again to facilitate book club in February so I could do a buddy read then. 😁 14mo
Mitch @BookNAround 👍🏼x 14mo

@TheKidUpstairs Megan!! I am blown away by your box of treats for #TheGreatWideOpen swap! I know we filled out a questionnaire, but it's like you already knew me! The teas, the candles, the jewelry, the tote bag, the German phrase book, the adventure reads that are right up my travel alley --I'm gobsmacked. Thank you so much! 😍
This was such a fun swap. Thanks for organizing, @LazyDays !

TheKidUpstairs Yay!!!! I'm so glad you liked everything. I had such a blast putting it together for you. It can be nerve wracking picking totally off TBR for someone, but I thought I had an idea of what you'd like, so I'm glad I got it right! Happy Reading, and steeping. The Forests Edge tea is my go to nighttime cuppa, and it seemed so perfectly on theme I had to send some! 14mo
Bookishthoughts Great package!💕💓 how fun! 14mo
Amiable @TheKidUpstairs I'm so excited to try new teas-- I can't wait! 14mo
Bookishthoughts Thanks for joining this has been great! I've discovered some great books! 14mo
Bookishthoughts I hope you get yours soon. 14mo
