Surprise! The Good Kind
We finally got to go down to Florence to the Post Office today to get our PO box! I was inordinately excited about that for some reason and I was not disappointed. First off, it's a bright, shiny Post Office with ample parking. Secondly, although it was bustling, the line was short-ish and quick. Thirdly, the postal worker (who's name I didn't get, because she wasn't wearing a name tag and I forgot to ask like a jerk) was super nice and friendly (on top of being expeditious and efficient). And finally, I/we got a bunch of fun mail!
My friend, Tiffany over at Fizzy Party, contacted a bunch of my friends through Facebook to send me mail at my new address (which wasn't yet an address) and my friend, Ellen, contacted all my embroidery buddies! I received letters, cards, postcards and little treats from Oregon, Idaho, California, Texas, Arkansas, North Carolina, Nevada, and Florida with well wishes to me, Eric and the Beastie Grrrlz for our new home and new life chapter. I wasn't really expecting much mail at all since it was supposed to take 7-10 days to forward our mail from Portland and it had only 6 days, so to get fourteen (14) pieces of the good kind of mail was a great surprise! I feel so loved and blessed. THANK YOU!
