Cara Box Exchange

I finally am posting my first Cara Box.  I was fortunate enough to receive two boxes as both of my pairings sent me a box.  So I have one today and one tomorrow.
So what is the Cara Box Exchange?  I will let Kaitlyn from Wifessionals take it from here.
cara (car-rah) noun : beloved friend

Cara Box is a quarterly box swap among women.  It was created with the intention of connecting ladies, allowing them to truly get to know and encourage each other.  This swap is primarily based around Instagram.  Both bloggers and non-bloggers may participate, but being an active user on Instagram is a must.

March's theme was hometowns.  So I sent Jennifer things from the Reno/Tahoe area.
Red Passion Davidson Tea (Sparks, NV), Starbucks Lake Tahoe coffee cup, Blind Dog Nevada Black Coffee (Reno, NV), Tahoe Toffee Coffee Toffee (Gardnerville, NV), Natures Bakery Fig Bar (Carson City, NV) and a cute dog card.

Today is my Cara Box from Jennifer.  Jennifer lives in Southern California, loves the beach, wine, coffee and many other things.  We connected very well and I feel like I have known her for years.  Cara Box Exchange definitely did us a favor because I can see us being friends for years to come.  Plus she is trying to visit me in December for a trip to Heavenly (she took her honeymoon there), and I go to the LA area at least once or twice a year.
So without further ado, here is my first Cara Box.
I took some individual photos so you all can see everything in detail.

I think Jennifer did an amazing job.  She knows I travel a lot for work, love wine and the beach.  I always plan my vacations where there is a beach.  Costa Rica, Mexico, Hawaii, California, etc.
