I picked up my box of goodies from the post office and wondered what was inside as it felt quite light. I was pleasantly surprised with the contents which were a lovely mixture of unusual spices, cake and more. Each item had an explanation of what it was on a little post-it note.

Here are the contents in pictures:

    A box full of spices, how wonderful! As much as I love getting sweet treats in the mail, something like spices would be a fun change of pace.
