(ummm yes, I enjoyed this swap immensely, why do you ask?)
She decided to go with a retro theme with some african undertones (mine to her was "confetti" because I couldn't choose one) but anyway....the pictures! there were 2 "jars"; a jar and a lunchbox, contained within another "jar" of a backpack!
lion backpack! I;ve already worn it to work and I've had it less than 24 hours

pinup lunchbox! I'm going to be the coolest kid at college come September

Its so perfect....so beautiful... She combined my love of the vintage style, with my love of medicine (i'm a nursing student), with my love of looking pretty! i mean really....so much awesome.....
she just got my style and personality so perfectly! I hope she was half as awestruck by my package to her. I know I said I was going to wit to post these till i got back from my little trip...but i couldn't wait!
