Getting over that cold!

I guess it's that time of year again. That time of year when we get sick. Officially, flu season was actually earlier in the year and when we heard from our workplaces (Will and I are both in healthcare, though we don't work directly with patients) and doctor friends that this year was a particularly bad flu season, we got the vaccine right away.

And so far so good. Until last week. After I was under the weather for a week poor Will, who took such good care of me, got sick too! I remember both of us were sick around this time last year too, despite our best efforts.... but now thankfully, we have both recovered and are pretty much 100% again-- just in time for the weekend!

For the past few weeks we've been having loads of chicken soup and lemon tea around the house. I remembered this super cute idea for get well soon care packages that I saw from Creature Comforts. Great idea for the next time a friend is sick!

Materials for the get well kit:
  • Large mug | Target, approximately $4 
  • Honey bottle | Grocery store, $4.50
  • Fresh lemon | Grocery store, $.40 each 
  • Chapstick brand lip balm | Target, $2 
  • Tissues | Target, set of 3 for $2 
  • Burt's Bees Honey & Lemon Throat Drops | Target, $2 
  • Optional - Clear Cellophane Basket Gift Bag | Michael's, set of two small bags for $1
  • Free printable gift tag (download from original post here)
  • Twine 
  • Scissors
How cute is that? And I've always absolutely loved the bear-shaped honey bottles. Thanks Creature Comforts!
