I got paired up with Jenny from Dancin' With A Dolly and I am so grateful for this swap for pairing us up so I could discover her blog! She lives in Long Island and the next time I make it to NYC (soon, I hope!) she's going to be my tour guide and show me all the hidden gems that the city has to offer. She is also a woman of many talents - photographer, small business owner, writer, make-up artist, AND she's a wife and mama. Oh, and she also hates Angelina Jolie so she wins all the things and it clearly means were meant to be besties.
#TeamAniston. She gets me
Jenny sent me the cutest note (Target?!) and a journaling kit along with a journal - how true is the quote on the journal?!. I had a 'sneak peak' of my journal on IG yesterday (shameless plug) - I've been doing Helene's #30photosinbetween photo challenge and yesterday's prompt was 'Word Play' so the journal was perfect for it. I can't wait to get writing!
I feel terrible because I thought the $11.00 I spent on shipping was crazy but her package was over $16.00 - why is sending something across the border SO expensive?!
I should note that while shopping for a journal for Jenny I bought myself TWO, even though I already have a couple AND I knew I would be getting one from her soon. I couldn't help myself! The one journal is a travel journal and I can't wait to get using it. I'll be bringing it with me to the Twin Cities this weekend to get started on it. I ended up giving the other journal to a friend of mine last night when we met up to discuss a possible job opportunity. We discussed how we both want to journal but most of the time end up writing lists, ideas that pop into our head, etc. instead of actually journaling. I view my blog as my own personal journal and I actually hate handwriting for too long - I get bored of it way too easily so list making is where its at for me. I'm never without a notebook and I'm sure it won't be long before my new one is all filled up!
