have you heard of "the snail mail collective"?

If not before, now you will!


So, while exploring and discovering interesting blogs trough BLOGLOVIN platform, I came accross a beutiful, inspirational blog, Melyssa's The Nectar Collective.

And I came accross it in a wright time to sign in for a project called The Snail Mail Collective.
It's imagined as:
"A monthly gift exchange (for bloggers) where you can meet other people from around the world. Each month, every participant will be paired with one other new participant (we’ll do our best to make sure you’re both from different countries!) and you’ll spend a couple weeks becoming BFFs (i.e. reading each other’s blogs, sending happy e-mails, you name it!). After that, you’ll send your partner a gift from your country that pertains to the monthly theme."
It did not take me long to sign in for the October round of this amazing project.
Another great thing about it is that it's imagined as a budget friendly gift exchange, as there's a 5$ limit on gifts to make it affordable to anyone.

The most beautiful thing about this project is the idea of connecting people in an old fashioned way, trough sending postcards and letters together with gifts, writing something to someone on a piece of paper instead over a keyboard.


This month, I'm paired with Lauren, Canadian girl living with her husband in Taiwan. She's a student, yoga teacher and an inspirational blogger. I had so much fun last few days, exploring her blog, MILLER MEMOIRES, reading about her adventures and travels, friends and family, learning trough her experiences and advices.
Be sure to visit her blog and to discover this talented, versatile girl that I was given a chance to meet, too.

I'll defintiely share a moment of receiving her gift when the time comes and I can't wait for that to happen! So exciting!

Wanna participate in next "Snail Mail Collective" gift exchange project?

And spread the word of this beautiful project of connecting people!
