I can only send the essence of what June means in our family. I know that the fresh baked bread will bring comfort and memories of our childhood filled with images of our mother standing at the counter kneading dough. There is nothing quite like the welcoming aroma of bread in the oven.
I know that the no-bake cookies made from our grandmother's recipe will be like a hug. I know because that is why the two previous batches never made it out in the mail. Ahem.
I know that the scent of our hand-dipped beeswax candles will bring warmth and light to those we wish we could be near.
I know that the fresh sage and lavender will be the closest thing to sending them a day in the garden, and honestly, can those scents be any more amazing?
And all the canned goods. One of the most wonderful ways to express our love is with food, am I wrong? And so, in the boxes go some of the last of 2014's Dilly Beans, Pickled Beets, and Blueberry Jam, and this years Maple Syrup, Pickled Garlic Scapes, and Ginger Peach Jam.
Oh there will be more wonderful things to send as the summer goes on, but I think this may be a good start!
