The other day I counted the number of email addresses I have accumulated for various reasons, and the magic number is five. Five different accounts!
As much as I like receiving electronic messages, the joy of coming home to real letters, postcards and packages can’t be beat. So as you can imagine, I was super excited to see this box perched on our front porch. I hope the post office never goes out of business.
Awhile back I held a blissmobox giveaway and the nice folks at blissmo sent me a box as well. I was happy to participate because I appreciate their mission and the products they are featuring. (And I have a thing for boxes.)
Inside the box I found:
The large number of generously sized items included is impressive; these aren’t pared down small samples. I like that blissmo is offering these products without the hassle of blindly wandering down the natural/organic food section of the grocery store or having to spend a mint. I’ve already tore into the Clif bars and can’t wait to cook quinoa for the first time.

Thank you to Sweet Tree Yogurt for the 10 free ounces of froyo! I cashed in after winning a Twitter contest last week. It might not be pretty, but it sure was good.
