sending out surprises

There’s something fun about being in on a surprise. The thrill of waiting until the reveal, the immense joy you get from the reaction. I love the intention behind it, whether to express gratitude, to celebrate small wins, or even just because.

A few weeks ago, I attempted to make my own tres leches—something I had been wanting to do for a while but never had the right ingredients on hand. When I was done, I decided to send out a few care packages to some people I’ve been missing. I thought they could use a sweet pick-me-up to end the week. It was just as fun to read their messages when they got the delivery as it was making the cake. So in a way, it was sort of a mood booster for me, too.

Recently, a few friends have been ordering from me to give out to other people. Some will keep the package a mystery, and others will just let them in on the secret, too. Either way, I get to be part of spreading some good vibes and I’m all the better for it.

If you feel like sending someone a surprise, here are a few ideas to get your started.
