Topic: Mail Faerie
(disclaimer/warning: this is a post all about me!)
Yes it's true someone here has a birthday on Thursday. As my friends totally spoil me each year (and I wonder to myself --- do I deserve this???) I am thankful for each year and how great life is to me! (And in the game of kharma it is all good as I recollect the birthdays of childhood past that fell on Easter where I would get my easter basket as my only birthday gift-- so maybe I am a cashing in on those birthday flops! lol)
I must share the fun and cuteness
Stephanie was in Europe last week on a biz trip and brought me back the most delectable Chocolates from Holland and skein of yummy sock yarn I can't wait to play with!
In my cubicle I found a wonderful gift bag from my coworker Michelle filled with CANDY (note the necklace set is the only thing that survived as I ate all the other candy at work today-- yummmmmm) and coolest card--- because its one of those song cards and when it's opened it plays "Ladies Night" from Kool and Gang-- of course she is so clever she said the actual words to the song if I listened closely are "it's Amy's Night" so I kept opening the card in the cube farm today and making my coworkers laugh
And of course the Mail Faeries showed up in FULL force at Chez Secrest-- I came home to find the LARGEST record holding "Amy-mail-love" pile of all time (I mean stuff that dreams are made of) I have few things I need to highlight in this pile of LOVE. The cow card on the far left came all the way from Australia. My childhood penpal from England reconnected with me last year after not being in touch for 15 years-- She has just moved with her husband to Perth and this is the first piece of snail mail since the move-- with the most wonderful news they are expecting their first child in late September. I got a wonderful card from my in-laws too! The pile of goodies grouped on the right include the best david and goliath notebook, hello kitty fabric ribbon spools (LOVE IT!) and the most adorable amyville-esque pink sparkly earrings. These items are very special to me, as they are from one my dearest childhood friends, also named Amy. Amy and I reconnected back in September last year when she hosted our 15 year high school reunion. Its wonderful to have a history with friend for almost 25 years -- and that we are so close as adults. And lastly the Muszynski clan spoiled me too... - Raquel knows my weakness of SUSHI and I have been eye-ing this kit forever!
THANK YOU to all my friends for making me feel so special :) Tomorrow I am taking my cousin Jerri --"Mama Jer" -- (she is the oldest daughter of my recently deceased Auntie) to Dolce spa so we can enjoy our birthday together. I was born on Mama Jer's 33rd birthday-- so it's very special to share a birthday with a close family member.
