I received Mary Kate's contact, the author of the blog From the Guest Room, as the person I'd be getting to know (via her blog), and then surprising with a package. Mary Kate lives in Nashville. The south is close to my heart (I was born and lived for years in North Carolina), and I loved looking through Mary Kate's blog -- she has beautiful photos, great style, and she is always posting about something interesting (book clubs, recipes, photography pointers, DIY, guest posts, fashion ideas). It was fun to put together a package for her, and also strange sending a stranger a gift -- trying to imagine who she was, what she'd like. I wanted to send something from California, something personal, something unusual, and of course to have it all be something she'd like.
