Good Mail Day

So, today I got home and checked the mail, and then said out loud “God, you SO speak my language!” You see, there have been several little moments today where I have seen the Lord giving me grace. Unmerited blessing and favor. And, He knows, I needed it today. And He totally “spoke my language” today by encouraging me with uber-fun mail! I mean, really, who doesn’t love something *real* in the mail?

Have you ever gotten mail from Australia?? If not…live vicariously through me today… cuz it’s pretty fun! The only other time in my life I can recall mail from Australia is when I was little I had a real life pen pal. We wrote each other letters about the sorts of riveting things that 8 year old girls write about. Her name was Simone… and I remember something about horses and gymnastics classes. 🙂

And *then* it was wrapped like this! Red and white twine! And tissue folded to look like an envelope! CUUUUTE!

My lovely package was from a lovely girl named Nancy X who runs an incredibly cute blog called Wolf and Willow. She ran a little contest asking who your childhood hero was. And while I had to rant on about the “Pippi Longstocking” that somebody else wrote about (we watched Pippi’s movie all.the.time as kids) I ended up writing about my Grammy. (You can read my comment here, click on show more comments at the bottom and it will pop up). She liked my story, and sent me a fun little prize… all the way from Down Under.

All of it is branded with the most adorable vintage childhood storybook illustrations that are just so stinkin adorable.

What was inside the package, you ask? Well, how about this adorable cotton pouch? Nancy had even asked my favorite colors… and I got one that was hot pink and turquoise!!

And I also got this adorable handmade card. Is this dog not so sassy and adorable? The paper and envelope are really rich and shimmery too, which makes me happy.

Starbucks is discontinuing their Duetto Visa, which I have. So, as their way of thanking me for being a good customer and to apologize for shutting down the credit card, they sent a booklet with coupons good for one beverage of my choice every month for the next six months. Oh yes they did.
