First Foodie Swap!
Helllooo there! Today I'm sharing something new - a foodie swap! What the heck is a foodie swap? Well, if you're into blogging, you may have found that it's really about growing your community, growing a following and connecting with other bloggers. However, what I think a lot of us fail to do on the reg (I am totally guilty,) is blog in our own little bubbles - not quite connected with the other talented and unique bloggers. So Georgie created this fun concept called a "foodie swap" where a group of us bloggers are paired up with another (blindly) and we go out and put together a fun little food care package.
Packages are fun, and so are letters - especially when they include surprises! I couldn't wait to find out who my foodie pen pal was and eagerly checked my mail every single day after work until my package came!
My Swap Box:
My foodie swap buddy was Liv, from healthy-liv.com! I was so happy to open my package to find it filled with a few of my favorite things plus an adorable note. Trader Joe's caramel cheddar popcorn is kind of amazing, and I'm SO happy she included it because I would usually go for the plane Jane popcorn and not buy this kind. As you can see from the photo, I couldn't even wait to take a photo without tasting it...
I'm also so happy Liv re-introduced me to Trader Joe's fruit bars. The only ingredients are fruit. In fact, I picked up like ten more today when I went shopping! I also received some Larabars, Kind Bars and Trader Joe's Brownie Crisp (amazing!!!)
THANK YOU Liv!! I hope you enjoyed your swap box!
You can check out what I sent to Liv in her post. You should also take some time to check out her blog - she's a college student at UNC, an inspirational runner and she makes delicious recipes!
