But either way, we figured one positive thing out of the whole ordeal was that we could double our wardrobes and nobody would know the difference.
So every Wednesday we stood outside Hixson United Methodist Church with our navy drawstring Gap bags ready to exchange with each other. Dresses, shorts, a favorite top. Anything and everything.
So when she asked me a month ago or so if there was anything I needed, I ordered another Gap bag of goodies. And boy did she ever deliver.
Just last week, I received a box stuffed with a new wardrobe, perfect dresses perfectly my style and perfectly my size. I literally tried them on and danced around the apartment. I don’t know if you remember my stories of shopping in Korea, but I’ll keep this short and just say it doesn’t make me jump for joy. I waltzed around the small rooms of our apartment like the middle schooler I used to be. Ha! Size small, Korea! I’m no X-large where I come from!!!
But as I began to dig into the box and through the mounds of amazing candy–Nerds, Sour Patch Kids, Sweet Tarts, and Fun Dip–I saw another treasure in the bottom.
She had sent me a handful of handcrafted hair clips from her and Jessica’s new company, Sweet Chocolate Swirls
I don’t know if any of you blog readers out there have checked their products out, but they are seriously too cute for words. Button and felt barrettes that are so cute that even my Korean students and co-teachers just have to touch them.
One co-teacher blatantly requested at least one of them after I told her I received several of them in the mail. Why not? Got to spread that Chocolate Swirl love around the world! Thanks Brittany and Jessica for sharing with me–and I can guarantee, you’ve got some big fans in Korea!
