Well, the first day of spring has come and gone and we’re still waiting for the sun to appear here in Halifax. The weather is undoubtedly warming but it’s definitely not feeling very springtime-y.
A few of my co-workers and I play a game called Secret Pal. It’s basically Secret Santa except that the little gifts are given all throughout the year. It’s so fun to expect a little something, not only on holidays but sometimes just because! I’m also enjoying getting to flex my creative muscles to make and create (and yes, sometimes buy) little presents every so often.
On the first day of spring I decided to give my Secret Pal just what the weather wasn’t; a jar of sunshine. I filled a glass jar with a variety of yellow candy: salt water taffy, Lifesavers, fuzzy peach rings, pineapple sugar, etc.
I just hope she likes the flavours of banana and lemon…
