Socks from Finland

Several weeks ago, Cristy at Searching For Our Silver Lining organized a sock exchange and I signed up! I was paired up with a blogger I wasn't familiar with but was excited to get in touch with someone new. In turn I've started following JustHeather over at BattleFish and I'm so glad that we've "met".

After we exchanged info, I found out she lived in Finland! So neat! I live in plain 'ole Ohio! :)

I just received the socks that she sent and I love them! They're even made in Finland!

She also sent me the cutest little angel charm that she made. I'm trying to find a place to put it so that every time I see it I think of her and all of you ladies that I've gotten to know over the last few months. Maybe in my car, then I'll have you guys with me everywhere I go and especially on my drive to the RE's office!

I'm really glad that I've gotten to know such wonderful people even through our shared difficulties. Somedays we're able to make it through because we know we have someone to share it and walk through it with us.

Thanks again JustHeather, I love them!!


  1. Nice socks! I would love to meet someone in Finland!

  2. Awe cool - the sock exchange happened just when I started my blog and when I was super depressed. Now seeing a few sock posts, I wish I had joined :(

    Next time! Love the socks btw!

    1. I'm sure there will be a next time, on some blog. Definitely join in!

  3. The socks look amazing! I'm so glad that you two got a chance to connect.

  4. So glad you love the socks! If they had them in my size I would have gotten me a pair too. :)
    Looking forward to getting a package myself. It shouldn't take more than a week (or two at most).

  5. I don't care what anyone says, getting packages in the mail is the best. And when they contain cute sock from Finland? All the better.

  6. I love the ideas us ALI people come up with! So cute!

  7. Cool socks! Yea, I agree, getting something in the mail is so fun!

  8. A sock exchange. Love it. See? This is why the internet is so cool. If I suggested a sock exchange to people in the real world, I'd probably get some funny looks.

  9. loving this idea - isn't amazing how we all get to connect with such amazing women all over the world!?
