A "Road Trip" Care Package/Gift

My dear friend Erin and her husband had a trip to Busch Gardens planned this past weekend. They haven't been away from their children since they've been born (age 4 and age 2). I was really excited for them. I knew I wanted to do something special for Erin, but I didn't know what. Recently, Erin has made a huge goal for herself.  She has been very successful with her weight loss goals and I didn't want a "road trip" to set her success backwards. So, I decided to pack her a cooler of healthy goodies for the car ride and the day at the amusement park. The ideas were ENDLESS. Of course, I didn't stop there. I get on a roll and tend to go over board.  The healthy food care package then lead to car games and hotel toiletries.  

I left all of the goodies on her doorstep the day before she left. I was concerned that she didn't have time to plan anything special for her and her hubby because she was preoccupied with preparing her children's over night bags.  

Erin and Nathan contacted me, via text, on their trip to express their gratitude and to share a bet they had about the cucumbers I packed for them. I cut them in a fancy way.  LOL! Nathan bet Erin that I cut them that way. I guess Erin didn't think I knew how to do that. Nathan was right!!!

It's a great feeling to bless someone you love!  

Erin and Nathan have since returned home and their trip sounded like so much fun!!!!!
