so i was a bit emotional this morning

The doorbell rang.  I was thinking it was sort of early for UPS.  I ran upstairs to find a PINK box sitting at my doorstep.

fun mail

FUN MAIL!   (Of course I had to snap a few pics before opening the box.)  I have a huge weakness for cute packaging and was skipping inside when the colorful shred fell out.

What could it be?!!!!


I started pulling out the treasures.

And proceeded to FREAK OUT for a number of reasons.  Neither of the gals who’d filled the package knew about my history with World Market’s bird mugs.  I “visit” the bird mugs (along with the rest of their birdware) each and every time I go to World Market.  With a cabinet full of coffee mugs at home, I could never justify the purchase.  The mug that they chose even matches my office!  LOVE.

By the way, in case you didn’t already know it => birds are big for me.  Really big.  [The backstory is HERE.]  The fact that Kelli and Crystal zeroed in on this, brought me to tears.

The entire gift was like a personalized 5 Fun Things Friday, a collection of unique treats and treasures.  Everything rich in meaning.  I was completely overwhelmed by how personal it felt.  Detailed and particular.

Truly, truly special.
