Celebrate!

Check out all the celebrations at www.ruthayreswrites.com


Today I'm celebrating my school mailbox. 

Not because it gets filled with fliers to be passed out, 
paper work to be filled out, 
and junk mail to be tossed out 
(into the recycling bin, of course).

I'm celebrating my school mailbox 
because of the surprises I found there this week:







The first was from Franki. My OLW. It calms me down just to look at it. I wear it on my watch wrist, so when I check the time, it's always "time to breathe." 

The second is a long-standing joke with a friend who shares my love of Russell Stover Coconut Cream and Maple Cream Easter eggs. As soon as the Christmas candy is reduced to 50% and the Valentine's Day candy appears, we're on the lookout for the first sighting of the Russell Stover eggs. Whoever finds them first sends the other a pair. Julia wins this year. Bonus points for sending them interoffice mail in the exact same (perfect-sized) box I used last year.
