I've made a lot of great friends over the past few months and as strange as this might be to some of you, I haven't met any of them. HAHA. My friends laugh at me and say my blogging friends are creepy, old men, but I know better. Actually, some of these people I've met through being on the Bloom! Magazine staff but most of them blog, too, so it counts for both. And I know they're not creepy, old men. They are all precious, Christian girls who are always encouraging and all-around amazing. There are a few that have even asked for me to come see them but that hasn't worked out yet so we'll see!! Hopefully soon!

Anyway, on to the real reason for this post... One of these girls named Amanda has a blog and she decided to do something a little different this year. Instead of everyone being caught up in their own blogs and own stats and own lives, she wanted to get everyone involved to give gifts to each other for the Christmas season! I thought that was genius so I decided I'd participate. I was actually paired with Amanda and although I don't know her very well, picking out her gift was so fun!! It was kind of a guessing game but I'm hoping what I gave her will be put to good use.

And like I mentioned a minute ago, she was paired with me so she got me a gift as well. This gift-giving happened a few weeks ago so I'm a little late blogging this, but better late than never! She got me some awesome organic tea, some handmade soap, a Sight & Sound Theaters album, some candy, and a pair of beautiful earrings. Forgive me if I'm leaving anything out. There was a ton of stuff in that box. I was so excited when I received it. Christmas is the best. :)

Here are pictures of a few of the gifts I got. :D Thanks again, Amanda!


  1. You take such gorgeous photos... So so happy you love everything! I loved your gifts as well. <3 <3

  2. This is such a great idea! Don't let your non-blogging friends get you down about your new friends. I've met a TON of great people through blogging!

  3. I promise I'm not a creepy old you promise you aren't?? Hahaha, totally kidding! :)

    So blessed to have amazing online friends like you!
