Sunday J, Uncle Doug and I spent the day getting ready for the seasons first winter storm. Monday morning we woke up to several inches of the white stuff, wind and arctic cold. I’m not ready for winter, nor am I ready to start thinking about Christmas. One is here; the other will be here before I know it.
To kick the season off fun we are putting the bug in your ear that Christmas In the Country 2013 was a success and plans are in the works for 2014. Jamie and Laurie asked Erin and I to be co-hostesses for this years event.
What: Announcing Christmas in the Country 2014
When: Monday November 19th – Sunday November 30th we will have a link to sign up for the gift exchange.
Monday December 1, each participant will receive their gift exchange assignment.
Saturday December 13, shipping deadline for gift exchange.
Wednesday January 7, share a blog post telling us what you received.
Why: This is an opportunity for Ag/Country/Agvocate bloggers to build friendships across the miles and meet new bloggers with similar interests and backgrounds. If possible we would like you to send gifts that represent where you are from or unique to your area.
For Christmas in the Country 2013 I sent a package to Jent at From My Front Porch. I received goodies from Kelly at Old Blue Silo. I was surprised with Indiana made Red Wine. The “fresh brewed coffee” scented candle I got was hand poured by a family friend of of Kelly’s. Pure Maple Syrup and earrings from another friend of Kelly’s who has a syrup business and makes her own jewelry were in my package too. I enjoyed the authentic Indiana made products, but what I love is the friendship Kelly and I have built over the last year.
Bloggers and non-bloggers remember to come back on Monday November 19th to sign up for the exchange.
