It’s Secret Santa season for sure! Like last year, I participated in Secret Santa gift swap again this year. Thank you so much for organizing this lovely holiday tradition, Wife of A Sailor!
My Secret Santa package arrived already at the end of last week, and I had a great intention not to open it until tonight, right before leaving for Chicago. And I was able to control myself but it was my beloved husband who was dying from the curiosity. He kept asking and asking if I am going to open the box, and when I am going to open it. So eventually a couple of days ago I gave up, and actually let him to open it – such a big kid. Next year he should sign up for the Secret Santa too!
Anyways, I couldn’t believe what I saw. First of all, the most beautiful packaging – how thoughtful to gift wrap inside the box. So clever! I am gonna steal this idea for my next year’s Christmas mailing purposes. And then out comes a purple, overflowing stocking. A book and selection of Starbucks teas! Yummmm! I have to admit, I already tasted a couple of tea flavors. Winter Dream Tea together with gingerbread is such a delicacy! And then the book. I will be glued to it on our flight from Alaska to Chicago. No Turning Back by Ryan Anderson, a soldier awarded with Purple Heart who lives the life and is a true American. I can’t wait to read this book. What a great choice by Shana, my Secret Santa – you found a book that I haven’t read, and the one that I can’t wait to read.
