My friend and fellow photographer, Crystal said it best in her recent blog post entitled Simple Sweetness.
The mailbox can be a grim place filled with bills, boring notices, and loud advertisements screaming at you to spend money you don’t have, on things you don’t need. Today, however, as I reached in and pulled the pile of crisp white envelopes and fast-food flyers out of the box, I was elated to look down and see this colourful surprise on top! I ran upstairs to open it with my husband and inside we found a lovely little postcard providing a brief glimpse of my sister-in-law’s travels through South Africa! It was our turn to experience a little “Simple Sweetness” today, as a regular ol’ trip to the mailbox turned into something awesome!
Thanks Crystal for your ever-so-awesomely-relateable blog posts and Sierra for your thoughtful gesture that made our day just a little bit sweeter!
