Y'all I am so very happy with how the Fall Favorites Swap turned out! Thank you to everyone who signed up, and keep an eye out, because we just might be doing another swap very soon! ;) One thing is for sure, we'll definitely be doing this again next year!
OK, so, on to the good stuff.
I was lucky enough to be paired with one of my most favorite bloggers, the oh-so-fabulous English (side note: I love her, if you aren't reading her blog, you're missing out!), and I was so excited to get some goodies all the way from Germany! And let me tell you, she didn't disappoint!
(Sorry for the horrible photos, my memory card is out of space, and I couldn't find a new one, so we're stuck with crappy phone pictures!)
An adorable little card right on top.
Y'all? That's some genuine German goodness right there!
On the right is apple jam, which is literally the best apple jam I've ever tasted, and on the left is pumpkin raspberry jam. Oh yes, pumpkin raspberry jam. It's my new favorite jam. Ever. The apple is delicious, but the pumpkin raspberry has a chocolate-y, hazelnut-y taste, and ohmygah, it's good. We've already gone through at least 1/3 of the apple, and half of the pumpkin raspberry. OK, enough about the jam, if I talk about it anymore, it's going to make me hungry! In the front is a shot glass from Deutschland, which is a perfect souvenir because I collect shot glasses. (And English didn't even know that!). Now, that tall, beautiful bottle in the back? That's the best part. It's apple cinnamon liquor. Liquor, y'all. And it happens to be absolutely delicious!! It's sweet, with just the right amount of burn. It would be perfect with a mug of hot spiced apple cider in the evening! And the best part? Once it's gone, the bottle is so pretty, I can keep it out on my vanity. (I have a thing for interesting bottles!)
I love everything that English sent me, and I have a feeling I'm going to need more of the jams (and probably the liquor too!) very, very soon!
I had so much fun with this swap, thanks again to everyone who signed up! Now, head over to the other swapper's blogs and check out what they got!
