Coming and Going

5 Aug

These past 10ish days have been good ones. My mom is back in Michigan, Gabe and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary, and of course there’s been some happy mail. Before I dive into this mail call, I sort of have some loose ends from “Secret Santa and the Mail Lady” to tie up now that more of my pen pals have received their presents.

Still to come: Kära and Allison’s presents 🙂

July 25th: After I posted my last mail call, I found a letter from Kristy in my regular mailbox, and tea and an intro letter in the other.

July 26th: It was on Sunday that the boys and I had our family pictures taken, and afterward we did a little shopping. Gabe got cupcakes, I got an Alice shirt, and Logan made Marshall the Monkey at a place similar to Build-a-Bear.

July 27th: It was today that I got my “Secret” Santa gift from above. I also got Kayla’s letters and Krista’s postcards– yes, there was more than one, hehe.

July 28th: Thanks to Katy and Laura, I got some “extraordinary” mail.

July 29th: Getting Krista’s letter and some stamps was definitely the cherry on a sundae of a day. My mom made it to MI on Tuesday and spent a good chunk of Wednesday with me, Logan, and some Chipotle burritos. I was worried Logan would be shy around his grandma because it’s been two years since he saw her in person, but he was very much a ham.

July 30th: Not only did Jody and S’Moore send me letters, one of my gnomes found his way back to me! Conner joined Gabe and I for dinner over at my aunt-in-laws’ in honor of our 5th anniversary. Marilyn and Jen prepared steak, potatoes, and corn on the cob. They even got us an ice cream cake!

August 1st: This month started off on a high note thanks to my other Secret Santa present. Many thanks to Nerd in the Brain for hosting a similar swap!

August 2nd: As nice as it would have been to get any mail, I’m glad the boys and I got to spend some time with my family… and that we were back from my grandparents’ before we got hit with a nasty storm.

August 4th: So far I haven’t gotten much mail this week, but it’s probably for the best because I wasn’t distracted from cleaning. Why am I cleaning? You’ll have to tune in on the 15th to find out!

Ciao for now!
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
