Getting mail is the best. It's especially good because the Royal Mail isn't exactly the most reliable service in the world (who knew how amazing the USPS is? I mean, you can trust that things will arrive ... and unopened, at that!). When one is expecting a package from home, one crosses ones fingers until said package arrives safely.
I've gotten some pretty amazing packages since we moved (I've been working on a blog post about Tyra's over-the-top-awesome Christmas treats for months now), but this one hit the spot for both me and David. Its contents? America in a box. Processed, icky, treats that are oh-so-delightful. I'm pretty sure the bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs won't last the day. A box of Manischewitz matzoh ball soup mix, for when we are sick, was a great surprise. I've yet to find matzoh meal anywhere.
The most genius inclusion were various sizes of Ziploc™ bags filled with my dad's top-secret homemade popcorn recipe. I don't know what variety of seasonings he uses, but my dad makes the best oil-popped popcorn in the world. It's just an added bonus that it makes a perfectly recyclable (mmmmmmm!) packing material.
Speaking of packing, I'm off to pack for a month-long tour, for which I leave TOMORROW! Yikes.
