the little things in life

my dad just returned from a very short business trip to the states, usually when he travels all the way over there for business, he makes a pitstop in texas to visit my brother and sister. he was only in dallas for two days, but my mom, sister & brother managed to get a few special things together in a care package for him to bring back to me. it is SO nice to receive a few familiar things from “back home” when living in a foreign country. thanks again mom, mirelle & ben!
peanut m&m’s, confetti cupcake mix (my favorite!), pink buttercream frosting, pretty cupcake holders, a handmade bracelet made from recycled materials (more about that here), flavored drink enhancers, different flavored gum, a goofy, but fitting, card & some praline almonds and slim jim for my israeli grandparents on my dads side (my mom always sends them treats too)
my mom knows i hardly drink water unless its flavored  ๐Ÿ™‚
extra dessert delights is sooo goood! i love these flavors! root beer & mint chocolate chip, which just tastes like mint

    So fun to see what kind of stuff people get excited about that we always have here in the U.S.!

    M&Ms are the perfect add on to a care package! Who wouldn't love those?

    There are so much things I love in your package but it's really hard to get them here in Austria….

    Kisses,

    Ahh so nice of your Dad!
    I have a similar-looking list of New Zealand stuff (mostly sweets hehe!) that I bring back/ask people to pick up for me whenever they're over…. there's some things that will always be delicious, just because you can't have them! ๐Ÿ™‚
