June Foodie Pen Pal Reveal!

I had the BEST Foodie Pen Pal this month!

Anna was so sweet and thoughtful and sent me the best package!

 I love how she wrapped everything up with summer sunshine!

 I couldn't wait to open everything up, and I almost forgot to take pictures! The herb book is PERFECT! I have all of these fresh herbs growing and I cannot wait to read it at the lake this coming week, I am sure I will have all kinds of good ideas for the herbs!

 We will be using the honey this weekend up at the lake, I cannot WAIT! I love it when the food packages contain local honey, do you wonder if the bees can make different tasting honey? I am sure of it!

 This is SO awesome! A couple of years ago for my birthday, the boy took me to this restaurant, Mission, and they had a lavender creme brulee that I am going to try to re-create.

Oh delicious ice tea. I am going to try my hand at making sun tea this weekend, this is going to be the perfect addition to the tea!

Anna, thank you SO much for such a sweet and thoughtful June foodie pen pal package! I LOVED everything! Check out her blog here!

And now it's time for some details about Foodie Penpals.  In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal! 
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you are to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month. 
-Foodie Penplas is open to US & Canadian residents.  Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We've determined things might get too slow and backed up if we're trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. 
If you’re interested in participating for July, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. 
You must submit your information by July 4th as pairings will be emailed on July 5th!

*If you're from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I'll see if we get enough interest this month!
