Care Package!

I still say that one can't understand the whole "expat living abroad" thing until you've done it. It's too hard to understand the EXCITEMENT and JOY that a box from America can bring!!!!

That's why Holly sends care packages on a regular basis! She's lived here, done that... and understands how important a bottle of vanilla and red vines can be! :)

This was so awesome to get two days before Valentines Day. The cookies were yummy and Scotty got to fill out Valentines. He was one of three kids who handed them out and it made him feel special. :) He used his rainbow heart pencil all day...

I don't want to jinx anything but if Holly moved back to Denmark I'd be thrilled! I'd even trade my holiday care packages for her to be on this side of the ocean. :) Thanks, Tak and DANKE!!!

Hey Tara! Any time you need a little lovin' from the good ole US of A, let me know! Glad the cookies were still fresh :-)

Hi Ingrid, not sure if you remember me, but I was at Tara's when Christina taught us how to make tiramisu. Any way...jinx is hard to describe, but basically means that you say something before it happens that you really want, and then hope it comes true. For example, You tell your husband, "I'm so hungry. All I want is rundstykker and nothing else will make me happy" And then he walks to the bajeri and they have no more rolls and no nutella.

And, no I didn't send red wine. We have red vines, which are like sticks of red licorice that taste kind of like strawberry or cherry and are stretchy and chewy. Tara throws them out the window to the kids when they are on the trampoline.

Ingrid - Hope you are enjoying England!

Tara - hope France has been kind to you!
