    [fyi: I started this list on Wednesday but it's been a really busy week and it took me forever to finish it]
  2. β€’
    p.s. apparently gifs do not work on the list app. Just use your imagination?
  3. β€’
    It's here, it's here, it's here!!!

    Reilly and I were both really excited.
  5. β€’
    The wrapping is AMAZING!!!
    The front was personalized scrabble paper! It had my name in the middle & secret Santa in the corner! So personal and adorable.
  6. β€’
    And it was covered in this super fun and colorful duct tape!
  7. β€’
    I opened the box, and the inside lid was decorated with this poem, printed on legal paper, and I could not love all of this any more if I TRIED...
  8. β€’
    The rest of the poem.
  9. β€’
    It's so heavy and substantial!
  10. β€’
    My secret Santa is @Danafesto!!!
  11. β€’
    She has beautiful handwriting that I am jealous of.
  12. β€’
    Just look at this lovely card!
  13. β€’
    This long, thoughtful, hand written card!
  14. β€’
    It's a box FULL of stuff!!!!
  15. β€’
    Pure maple syrup from a farmer's market in Dana's town!
    I honestly don't think I've ever had real maple syrup before. We always bought like Aunt Jamima. Is that pure? I don't really know a lot about maple syrup. I'm excited to try it!
  16. β€’
    An awesome looking canister of tea from a local coffee shop in her city.
  17. β€’
    A bag of fresh roasted coffee that smelled so good I almost stopped to brew a cup.
    I used to work for a coffee roaster and I always LOVED Guatemalan origin coffees.
  18. β€’
    The back side of an awesome mug...
  19. β€’
    And the front side! A Starbucks regional mug! I love it so much!!!
  20. β€’
    But wait, there's more!
  21. β€’
    A SECOND mug from another local coffee shop. (A different one than the tea & coffee.) I love mugs! Especially ones with unique and cool logos! This honestly is probably my favorite part. β˜•οΈπŸ’•

    TJ's peppermint Joe Joes.
    Dana said this was mostly so she wouldn't eat them. As your new friend, I am willing to take and bear this deliciously minty cross for you. 😘
  23. β€’
    A bottle of lavender essential oil because "teachers need soothing care too" and because Dana is the sweetest human.
  24. β€’
    Just look at it all! It doesn't even all fit in the picture!
  25. β€’
    She is the sweetest, most thoughtful human!
  26. β€’
    @Danafesto, the only thing missing a return address so that I could send you a secret special present back!
  27. β€’
    Thank you so much, Dana. You are so thoughtful & generous! Your gift made my week. πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’•πŸŽ„πŸŽ
