Good morning loves! Today I am excited to share about our second Bloggers Giving Back event: Well Boxed! This event was a little more casual than our first, and together, we decorated and stuffed almost 15 personalized care packages for soldiers living abroad who normally don’t receive mail from loved ones. A lot of the attendees at this event were military spouses (we even had a Navy veteran!), so it was awesome to see and hear how much these care packages mean to soldiers. If you want to send a care package of your own, you can visit AnySoldier.com and sign up to receive an address of a soldier! 🙂
This event was held at Great Over Good, our favorite little art studio in Orange County. Naadine, GOG’s owner, did the decorations for the event, and they were so flippin’ cute as usual. She made that black and white garland out of yarn because she’s a total boss. I think I need one for my apartment!
Each attendee brought some goodies to send to a soldier. Check out all the awesome stuff our group of ladies put together:
As usual, I got to meet some of my favorite bloggers, including the super sweet and adorable Esther of Esther & Jacob.
Monja came, too! Can you spot him? 😉
We’ve got a SUPER fun event planned for April (all Esther’s idea!!) and we’ll be announcing it next Wednesday, April 9th — stay tuned! This one is TOTALLY something that you can do, no matter where in the world you live. Woop woop!
Thank you to all the ladies who attended this event! It fills my hear to do service with you all each month. If you wrote your own post about the event, link it up below so we can all peruse each other’s recaps! 🙂
Life Could Be a Dream
Jana is the sweet mama and wife behind Life Could Be a Dream. Her lifestyle blog covers a little bit of everything, from recipes (Graham Cracker Brownies, anyone?) and blogging tips to powerful marriage advice and even beauty tutorials (I seriously need to do this more…). I also think I might have to make this DIY Miracle moisturizer…seriously, how does she come up with all this awesome stuff? Jana is also a blog designer, so if you’re in need of a new design, you might want to hit her up! Now go say hi to this beauty! 🙂
Kelly Rheel is aptly named, since she’s about as real as they come. On her blog, Rheel Daze, Kelly is known for writing hilarious and in-your-face posts about everything from a standoff with her fire alarm to ten reasons why she knows she’s getting older. If you’re a cat person, you might like this one about cattitude. Otherwise, you should probably start with one of my favorite posts, “I’m Trying Really Hard to Like Yoga.” If you want to learn about Kelly first, start here. Now go check her out — she’ll have you cracking up in no time.
