As clearly documented here before, I love writing letters. I love stamps. I love dropping the envelopes in the post office box and thinking warmly of those set to receive my scribbles in a few days (or, in the case of Spanish Correos, possibly three weeks, possibly never). I’m a sucker for all things paper.
So…my heightened stress levels last week may have made me vulnerable, but when I saw the Omiyage Surprise Pack featured on the Send More Mail blog…it was inevitable. To quote Janet (Ms. Jackson if you’re nasty), I was like a moth to a flame, burned by desire. (that’s the way love goes.)
The Canadian exchange rate is doing me no favors right now, but I don’t care. When I opened my door last night after another very.long.day and saw a pink shiny package, I actually squealed. Despite a desperate need to pee, the package had to be opened. Immediately. Bodily functions be damned.
And inside: so much freaking kawaii goodness. The perfect counterpart to a long, grueling day when not a single person said things to me like “What a sweet honey,” “take a rest,” “always thanks for you,” or “Good Lcuk” (actual spelling). These stickers said all of those sweet nothings, and did so with style to spare.
