Woop woop! It's that time of the month again! Noooo not that time. It's the only time of the month I get mail!
This month's match up was actually really awesome. I met a new blogfriend Sam, who is now my soul sister... That sounds weird, but we just ended up having so much in common, I figure the universe must be putting us together for some reason, no? Sam lives in DC and blogs about her adventures there with her husband over at Sam 'n' Hal. We are both avid readers, chocolate lovers (who isn't though?), yoga lovers, holistic health junkies, travelers, and mormons! It was really fun to get to know more about her and if I ever venture over to DC, I have someone to visit.
I just received her package today on my way out for lunch and was so excited I opened it right up in Subway. I showed my husband and he just goes "Ohhh now I understand why you girls do this. It's all cute and stuff." Haha. So thanks Sam for all the cute stuff. I love the Ghiradelli chocolates and I'm eating the goldfish as I type this.
Everyone go show Sam some love on her blog and sign up for the December Snail Mail Collective at Lost in Travels or Nectar Collective.

Yesterday Cameron and I went up to the mountains near XinShe to check out the "International Taichung Flower Carpet Festival!" Every event here has "international" in the title... I don't think it means what they think it means... But, I guess there were a few foreigners there, so maybe that counts? This event pretty much sums up a typical Taiwanese activity: grow giant field of flowers (or some sort of spectacle), make themed cartoon characters, set up a giant market, and stand around with umbrellas taking pictures of such spectacle. This is the formula for a huge crowd of people and lots of sales. Despite the fact that it's just a giant money making scheme and the traffic up the small mountain roads was ridiculous, the flowers were beautiful and it was a perfect sunny day! And we did take some lovely pictures.
