Is there anything more exciting than finding a package in the mail and knowing that something totally awesome is going to be inside, but you don’t know exactly what? And then before you open it you have to walk alllll the way up the stairs, and get that stupid sticky lock to open, and feed the cats and run to the bathroom…

And then finally you sit down and tear it open with your teeth cus you’ve used up pretty much every ounce of patience you’ve got…. and then, whaddya know! It IS awesome!

That’s pretty much exactly what happened when I got MamaBetsy’s package today, containing a mystery gift she sent in exchange for some editing work (I did give her a little list of things I like, but it was still a surprise!). Imagine how excited I was to finally get that bag open and find an amazing pair of green vintage glass earrings inside! I’ve so been wearing them all day!

Thanks Betsy!
