Actually, I think we have a mailwoman... but I love her too. I suppose technically I'm indifferent to our mail carrier (man or woman) it's the mail that I love, however I do appreciate the job that our mail carrier does (well, except for all those times we get our neighbor's mail). Anyway, I have always loved to check the mail. I think it has something to do with my huge love of surprises. Before I was married, I used to sign up for all kinds of different product catalogs and free magazines so that I could be guaranteed to get mail every day. One never knows what the mail will bring.... well, actually one can usually count on some sort of bill and/or credit card offers, but its those rare occasions that the mail contains something totally awesome that keeps me checking each day with unbridled anticipation.
Well, Friday was one of those rare occasions... I checked the mail and was surprised to find a large white package full of all kinds of goodness. One of my favorite people in the whole wide world had put together quite the welcome kit for my newest little one.
