^April sent me "something borrowed" (which i had been wanting to read after i loved the movie), a mix cd she called "what a crazy day mix" (including songs from the Runaways, Weezer, and Rufus Wainwright to name a few), and the Pirates cup from when she went and saw it at a drive-in because she knows my absolute love for my girlfriend, Penelope Cruz. So cute!
^letters from alyssa (ginger spice to my sporty spice) always make me laugh! i loved the vintage paper doll that came with her first letter and then this awesome postcard arrived a few days later-- a photo from my wedding! isn't that awesome? now i really wish i had an iphone!
^ellie from australia is another great friend i was blessed to meet just through postcrossing. she always sends me her beautiful photographs (doesn't Bartlett's Beach look like heaven?) gorgeous eye for beauty. she also sent two cds she can't stop listening to-- Florence & The Machine's 'lungs' and Kisschasy's 'seizures.'

^for my best friend back home, my Maria who's expecting her first and it's going to be a little girl! i did get that cute Dallas Mavericks ruffle set that made my womb ache + shoes to match (cos she'll be like her 'auntie' and love them no doubt! how cute is that onsie? cos her auntie not only loves her some shoes, but some ice cream too!

^i thought it was cute when Gracie asked me if i could get her these magazines because she's into "The Hunger Games" and couldn't get them in australia. She said she would pay for them but i am a girl who knows how it is to want a magazine outside of the U.S. (hello! remember when Robbie Williams got married?!) it's what friends do :)

^i got this art poster print of monet's Venice Palazza Da Mula for my friend Kristina's birthday (her favorite artist / one of my favorite cities)
how can i ever not be a happy girl when i check mail? among the bills, these love letters are such a joy to my day.
Not to mention i adore my mail clerk so i enjoy going to the post office to mail out love letters-- every time he sees me he says, "there she is!" i don't know why, it always makes me feel special.
