We received a package in the mail yesterday from our sweet friends from Germany. They sent us an amazing care package full of goodies! Steve and I feel so blessed to have met Marit & Daniel! They are amazing friends and we hope to see them again some time soon in person (hopefully in Germany this time!)
The package was HEAVY! I was excited to open it up & see what was inside… but I had to cut through the duck tape to get a peak 🙂
Once I got the package open, there was a multitude of suprises! Sweet Marit remembered how excited we were to try Stollen bread ~ or “Christmas bread” last year. Her family shipped her a care package last Christmas when they were living in the US and this year she shipped that same bread to us! What’s especially neat about this bread is that my family used to always have it at the Rugotska family Christmas each year. We had american made bakery stollen, so it was neat to try authentic stollen! [Incidentally, I told my dad about receiving the bread & he wanted to know all about it. What was it made of, what was in it? Was it filled etc. pretty cute!)
The stollen is what made the box heavy, it’s a very dense sweet bread with raisins & a powdered sugar type glaze. YUM!
Needless to say we’re really enjoying it!
This is my “I am really excited” dance 🙂
They also sent us some type of german chocolates. One type looked like it came from a speciality shop & the other came packaged. They are both amazing. The first kind~ I think…. ~ has some type of a date filling? Marit?? Am I right? 🙂
They also sent us this beautiful table centerpiece. How sweet!
We really are blessed to have such sweet friends!
Marit & Daniel ~ Thank you so much for the sweet & thoughtful gifts but most of all for your friendship.
We LOVE you guys!!!
