i’ve always loved getting mail. let’s assume it has something to do with all those summers spent at camp. throughout the day we’d repeatedly ask, “mail here?”, only to be told that it had arrived but it hadn’t been sorted or, a reminder that we didn’t get mail on saturday because of shabbat and that we would have to wait until sunday. at the end of the day, as we scurried back to our cabins in our flannel shirts, giggling about boys; as we shoved retainers into our mouths and danced with every ounce of summer energy to SHINING HAPPY PEOPLE – mail would be distributed. my mom was the queen of letter writing – it was the rare event that a day went by that i didn’t hear the latest celebrity gossip – i’ll never forget the summer that JULIA ROBERTS MARRIED LYLE LOVETT. i seem to remember my mom even watching the summer episodes of 90210 so that she could report back and keep me completely up to date.
when not at camp, mail still seemed to arrive on a fairly regular basis. THE REAL NANI filled my mailbox with newspaper clippings about everything from extra-curricular activities that she
strongly suggested thought i might like to try, to wedding dresses i should really consider one day. there was always a chain-letter to be part of and of course, especially as i got older, my camp friends stayed in touch during the school year through 10 page novels – no detail spared.
these days, even though i check our mailbox daily – it’s usually filled with bills and solicitations. the highlight of my month is when a thick VANITY FAIR jams the mail slot so nothing else can fit inside.
but today was just insane in the mail department. take a look at what arrived at our doorstep:
as you know, i take my APPLESAUCE MAKING extremely seriously – now i have the tools to get the job done!
i’ve been rocking an EBN necklace since she was just weeks old – and i plan to continue to for years to come. but lately, i’ve been itching to mix things up and when i found JULIANA W. JEWELRY, i knew i’d found exactly what i was looking for in this delicate bracelet. i’m obsessed with her entire store (it’s possible i ordered a pair of earrings too) and plan to become a frequent customer
and, don’t think i was the only one who received mail – look what arrived for EBN today! it’s from her NANI and GRANDPA so for now it will hang out in the closet – they arrive in just a week and will
put it together open it in person
anything special come in your mailbox recently?
