A few weeks ago my best friend from high school was having surgery and I wanted to send her a little something to cheer her up.  I live in Virginia and she lives in North Carolina so we don’t see each other very often.  I remembered seeing this box of sunshine by Happy Money Saver on Pinterest a few months ago and knew it was the perfect gift.


Pin It
The mug is from Pier 1 and everything else I found at Target.  Connor and I had fun shopping for all yellow things.


I took the free printable Karrie offers on her site HERE and adhered it to a folded piece of cardstock to make a little card for the box of sunshine.


Definitely my new favorite gift to give!  This is sure to brighten someone’s day – probably there entire week!!
