from down under...


first letter from australia.
yes, i have been anticipating this letter for a few days...
i sent a letter from dearelder back in january. i've been checking the mail ever since. cue to tuesday. tuesdays are known as taco tuesdays around these parts. meaning friends and roommates go and get tacos at cafe rio because they are cheap on tuesdays. in the midst of getting myself a drink (diet coke and vanilla coke mixed, yum) i received a phone call from my dad...and the first thing he said to me was, "you have a letter from down under here."
yes, i had a freak out in cafe rio.
okay, a mildly big freak out.
i think the first thing i said was, "why did he send it there!?!"
thankfully, the parents mailed it to me the very next day.
cue to today. lo and behold, there was finally mail in the mailbox for me.
i just stared at it at my kitchen table for a few minutes before even opening it.
have you seen this clip?
pretty sure i was running around an 8 on the scale.
i might have cried a little.
