I like receiving things by mail. Magazines, cards, letters... but most of all I like to get the annoucement that I have a package to pick up from the post office. It's like a tiny birthday. Now, these days anyone hardly gets any actual paper letters anymore (except those nasty ones from the tax office and bills, but they don't count of course) and it's not that common to receive packages either.
Unless of course, you have ordered something.
That's of course not as fun as receiving birthday present or so since you probably did pay for it, but it's fun enough.
I like the waiting for the parcel to arrive, and when the notification comes home I rush straight to the post office to get it. Even though it's only about 50 meters from where I live, I usually have to open the parcel a little bit on the way home already, just to get a quick peak of what's inside.
What I also love is weather the sender has left some little personal note, like in this case (and it was very sweet).
This time the mail brought me this necklace from Untamed Menagerie.
I like different kinds of jewelery and accessories and collect a lot of them even though I in the end seldom end up wearing any of them.
But at least they're pretty to look at.
