Boosting my Christmas spirit #7 was a delicious mini-tea ring. I had to try a bite right away, I have a weakness for bread! Yum, it was great! Sharing was optional, but we did dig into it as the whole family was at our house for Christmas morning! It was a great addition to our usual fair of cinnamon rolls and enjoyed by all!
And lastly #8 was a generous offer to put together a farmed collage of photos of one of my favorite cows, Mercedes, that we just lost! Super touching and personal, excited to get some sent off to be put together!
Wow! 8 awesome surprises and I didn't yet know who my country Santa was. A die-hard Jersey girl (I'll forgive her that!) with Illinois dairy in her background: Jenny from TheMagicFarmHouse! Jenny also included a great letter with insight into her country life. I had so much fun receiving Jenny's gift and love all the thought and planning that went into making it personal for me! A huge Thank You to her. Jenny is also the Communications Director at the AgChat Foundation, whose regional conference is being held in my neck of the woods in a week. I had seen the conference earlier and totally forgotten about it, but at Jenny's reminder I signed up and am looking forward to not only meeting her, but also expanding my blogging skills and knowledge! Watch out 2014!!
Christmas in the Country was a super fun event full of great people. Make sure to stop by the link up to read about everyone else's gifts and gifters. My gift traveled to Jamie at This Uncharted Rhoade, besides a set back, I had so much fun gathering hers together as well! Seriously what an awesome group of people! I am thoroughly looking forward to participating next time!
