I was really excited to get a package from home today. Full of everything from goodies, to makeup, maternity clothes, even some easter candy. Oh and the best part was a few very special gifts, a hand painted landscape from my dad and 2 photos of my grandpa (young and older) who past away.
The box was jam packed, so I plan to do a few posts over the next few days to show you the goodies I got, and some of the deals we scored. Also just to share those special mementos with you.:)
I love getting mail. Especially packages.
I forgot to take pics, and I doubt I even mentioned it, but a few months back a very dear friend of mine Ashley, was sweet enough to take gifts for my family to the US and send them UP post which easily saved me 100 euro. I wish the shipping rates were more lateral, but the costs to ship to the US out of Europe are ridiculous. Last year I paid 25 euro for an envelope with chocolates for my moms birthday. For not much more in dollars she can send me a flat rate box packed full.
So I was able to send these gifts back home with her: (to the best of my failing memory)
Mom- A wooden carved plate with a beautiful scene for our city, a book (in english) about the history of our city
Dad- His and hers matching Pilsner glasses and a tourist tote bag with a gorgeous image
Aunt- an angel sitting in a hand (she loves angels)
cousin 1- a small hand painted plate
cousin 2- a tourist image on an ashtray and chocolate
and all the kids in the family got candy, as well as each family unit getting chocolate.
