Candy Swap

When I read that the lovely Lindsey had sent a care package full of sweets for her daughter (along with other fun items like glasses and a fake nose) I suggested: let’s make a candy swap! So, I sent her a super package of sweets and chocolate from Brazil and got a ton of delicious american candy (just in time for Halloween)!

So many yummy items! I also got the fake glasses, a cute vampire bear + a lovely card.

Thanks Lindsey for this amazing candy swap, I had a great time!
