My October One Kitchen, Many Hearts box came from the lovely ginger, Mads from La Petite Pancake. Mads is a former Fellow 45th Paralleler that went and transplanted herself in sunny California. Why she would willingly swap the glory of four beautiful seasons for the west coast, I’ll never know. I guess it might have something to do with avoiding the annual Snowpocalypse. Or the perfect weather all of the time. Or access to the ocean and beaches.
Or possibly the fact that the love of her life was in California and they got married. OK, I guess I can understand her motivation.
Mads box o’ goodies had the theme “Pamper Yourself.” Well, you don’t have to tell me twice! I received a pumice stone, a clay facial mask, a scrubby-sponge, and a bath bomb that smells so good that I’ve had to hide it from my boys so that they didn’t steal it and use it themselves. She also threw in a loaf of applesauce bread from The Best Bake Sale Cookbook, and I must say that even after a week in transit, that bread was still dang delicious!
Also included was this sweet little be happy. book of inspirational cartoons from her personal bookshelf. I just love books, but I especially love passing on a fun book to a friend.
Girlfriend knows just what I need.
Thanks to Mads, I have a legitimate reason to lock myself in the bathroom
and hide from my boys for a little personal rejuvenation time. Right after I clean the bathtub.
