This week, a good friend brought me a box of Pumpkin Spice Moon Pies, one of our family’s favorite snacks and then I saw the Valentine’s Day special edition Moon Pies (with a beautiful box) on Dieline. Moon Pies on my mind, for sure! In preparation for Valentine’s Day, I hope you get to indulge in your favorite snack be it food or stationery.
Very timely, there are several posts this week about go-bags, EDC bags and travel kits. This has given me food for thought regarding what I want to pack to take with me to LA this weekend. What’s in your go bag?
Don’t forget! If you are in the LA-area, be sure to pop by the CA Pen Show this weekend and say hello to Jesi and I at the show.
