what i love from the states...

mmm...here was my pile o' goodies when I returned back from the states (of course it is all gone now:))! I know I owe you a blog post about home, travels to Berlin, my 6 month anniversary in Prague (nearly 7 months now - can you believe it?!) and my most recent adventure to a Polish wedding (one word: wow!), but for now I have a wanted to get a very vital blog post taken care of.

First of all, I am wondering if anyone is even reading this?! I know, I know...I've lost you due to my blog negligence, haven't I?! Ah well. I'll get you back. Maybe I will butter you up with some czech treats (can anyone say slivovice?! ;))...

So I always get the "what do you miss most from America/what can I send you from America question". Since I get this question so often, I thought I'd throw out a broad-reaching answer so we can all be a lot more efficient...and I think this spread (see pic above) pretty much says it all. If you are looking to send me a package...no more mac-n-cheese! The word got out and I have a cupboard full (thanks Laura, Stacy, Dad, etc...but I am turning into a yellow/orange noodle - no more mac!;))...so my awesome dad also sent me some good spices for cookin' (which I haven't done enough of).

I miss organic fruit leathers (see bottom left of shot for the variety), Vosges Red Fire Bars (bottom right of pic), anything from Patina - especially cool birthday/get well/thank you/etc. cards (blank ones for me to send from here, as the cards here look like they were derived from my late grandmother's card collection - nothing against it...of course...but flowers and teddy bears and the like, you know?! I'm more of the vintage 1950's crude-card or offensive + delightful card gal), shitbegone (from the green store on hennepin in uptown..because you can never have enough) and one thing I'd really love is some yummy candles. Greta sent a Voluspa candle for my bday (Vervaine Olive Leaf) and it smells gorgeous, but it is almost gone. I would die for a Voluspa santiago black huckleberry (I think that is what it is called) variety right now.

The list goes on. I love a lil' piece of home sent my way...even (especially!) if it is a sweet card with a sweet message!
So, there you have it.
Oh, I can't tell you how excited I am to get your post! ;) hee.

Happy sending,



  1. Just wanted to let you know that I read your blogs... since you were wondering.
    I know we haven't kept in touch, but it's always good to see where everyone is and what they are doing these days. It sounds like you are having a great time over there. By the way, I have never seen a 26 year old, human/noodle hybrid, so could you please post a pic? ha ha. Take care Megs.

  2. Aww, thanks Meg...at least someone out there is;). ha ha. How are you, girl?!

    I am indeed having a great experience... definitely learning a great deal about myself, my relationships and life in general. Ha ha...I will definitely work on that human/noodle hybrid pic stat! :)

    Hope you are doing well and enjoying life, Meg!
