January Cara Box


I was so excited when I got home Monday because my FIRST EVER Cara Box was there!  Kaitlyn at Wifessionals started this amazing exchange and I have to tell you, it was so encouraging to me when I opened my box and saw all the lovely things sweet Brooke sent my way (She has the cutest blog, too, so be sure to check it out!.  Her note was the absolute sweetest, though!



This month's box was centered around New Year's Resolutions.  I like to make goals each year and the things Brooke sent will certainly help me with mine.  Most of my goals this year centered around growing in my faith, relationships, exercise, and fun.  (You can read about my theme for the year and my goals here.)

Brooke sent me two books: The Power of a Praying Wife and Journey of Prayer.  I can't wait to start reading these.  I've wanted to read them both, so it was so cool that Brooke sent these without even knowing that!


She also sent this awesome hand-painted canvas.  She painted this herself (she's talented, too!).  One of the things we want to do as a family this year is to take the boys' to a Clemson football game.  K.C. has gone before, but Kaden hasn't.  He's at the age now where he'll enjoy it (I think) and I can't wait to make that memory with them.  The boys share a bedroom at this time and it's Clemson themed.  I think this canvas my have a place in their room until football season!


Brooke also sent some delicious smelling bubble bath.  I love to take bubble baths.  They relax me after a long day and help me wind down and also ease my achy muscles after tough workouts.  The notecards and stamp she included are great, too.  I love writing notes and don't do it nearly enough.  I also love being organized and the giant pink clothespin she sent will help me keep important things together.  



Thank you for such an awesome Cara Box Brooke!  Thank you for this encouraging link up Kaitlyn!
