My secret santa rocks!

The goods from Lindsay!

It’s the  second year in a row that the lovely Jill has coordinated about a billion bloggers in a gift exchange, which is no easy task. And speaking for myself, for the second year in a row, I’ve had a fabulous secret santa who just nailed the perfect set of gifts!

Yesterday, I received a a box full of goodies from Lindsay of Chasing the Kenyans. What did it contain? A Starbucks card, a bag of Reese’s peanut butter cups, a fantastic travel mug, and some coffee to go in it. And, the best of all–this super personalized little drawing! That one really touched me .

Look closely at it and you can see how she was thoughtful enough to include so many aspects of my life: The MissZippy letters represent the Maryland flag;

Lindsay captured it all with this.

there’s a little Ohio state (where I grew up) in there; a coach’s whistle; some cute little veggies; a depiction of me driving my kids around in the mini-van, and a little computer with the WordPress symbol. How cool is that? Knocks my socks off cool–I am always impressed when people are this talented/creative.

So a big thanks to Lindsay for the gifts, and another thanks to Jill for all her hard work–it makes us all smile!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and everything in between my dear readers!
