Sweet Surprises in the Mail

Remember when you were a kid and you'd get so excited to get something addressed to you in the mail? A birthday card, a letter from the grandparents, a postcard from a friend on vacation--you get the idea. There was and still is just something special about receiving a package in the mail that's just for you. Everyday, I go to the mail box and 9 times out of 10 it is filled with junk and bills. Rarely is there a special treat in the mail. Which is why I get so excited when I get something great in the mail--whether it is a card, a letter from a friend or something I've ordered online.

So when a small box arrived the other day with my name on it, I hopped around a little and skipped back up the sidewalk to the house. My son and daughter (who love the daily trips to the mail box) were sharing in my excitement. "What is it Mama, what is it? What's in there?" I already knew what was inside, but I was enjoying this bit of excitement with the kids so I pretended I had no idea and that it was some special gift being sent to me. So we took the package inside and opened it carefully. Inside, there was a pink tissue paper wrapped box. Inside the box, resting on pink shreds and tied with a green ribbon were the calling cards I had ordered from Sweet Mady's Paper.
They were so adorable and so girly-which made them even better. They were brown and had white polka dots with an oval outlined in pink displaying our family's contact information (like the first photo). You just have to visit the Sweet Mady's online store and browse all the designs to see what I mean-adorable, precious, elegant-are words that come to mind. Thank you Michelle. You did a beautiful job. I love my calling cards and can't wait to pass some out at the soccer game on Saturday.

Thanks for reminding me of the value of receiving special mail. You made me want to write a note and mail it to my daughter. I'm visiting family this weekend and now I'll write them a thank you note and mail it rather than email!

Wow... calling cards just like in the Jane Austin novels... I want to get some so I can feel like the ladies in Pride and Prejudice! How romantic is that?
