It’s reveal day!
About a month ago the ‘Mug Love Exchange’ was announced. When I found out I was matched up with Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me, I was convinced I had won the partner lottery. I could write a whole blog post about Stephanie and what her friendship means to me. Or, I could sum it all up with a graphic.
I am abundantly thankful for the “octopus friends” that God has placed in my life.
Right about now you may be thinking “What in the world does any of this have to do with a mug exchange? I’m getting there, I promise.
My package arrived on a Monday. It couldn’t have come on a better day. Mondays always mean I could use any extra cheer that comes my way. Monday and I don’t have the greatest relationship. I snapped a photo, ran into the house and ripped into my boxes like a kid on Christmas morning.
And then I saw it…
Part of me wanted to cry over the thoughtfulness, but I just started laughing. A little graphic that I had once text my “octopus friends” has never been forgotten. Exchanges of octopus emojis are frequent and then Stephanie took it to a whole new level with this gift. To some it may look like a somewhat unusual coffee mug. But to me it a symbol of friendship. How can I not look at this mug smile and thank God for the friendships He has given me?
She didn’t stop there either. Pumpkin spice goodies and some other things came too. Because she know’s I’m #basic-ally obsessed with pumpkin spice and all things fall. FYI I totally stole that hashtag from her note card.
If you want to see what I sent to Stephanie, head on over to her space to check it out. Just be warned I wasn’t nearly as creative and thoughtful with my mug selection. You can also check out the other mug exchange posts in the links below.
