12 Days of Christmas Swap + Get To Know My Friend Tag

Hi Friends, I am so excited about today’s post. I and several other bloggers took part in the 12 Days of Christmas Swap hosted by Simone from mama of 4.  This is an awesome opportunity to meet a new blogger friend and in the spirit of kindness shower each other with gifts. For the swap, we will each send 12 gifts and in return receive 12 gifts, each to be opened in the 12 days leading up to Christmas day, starting from the 12th of December until the 12rd of December.

I have been paired up with gorgeous Thalea a Lifestyle, Inspiration and travel blogger from Her Sun-Kissed Soul. Her and I decided to do the Get to know my Friend tag type blog leading up to the swap,where we each answered 22 random questions about ourselves. This I find to be a good way to get to know each other, so here are her 22 answers to the questions. Click here to see my answers.
