A Day for Love

Nothing is better in this world that waking up with a purring kitten, a lovely man, and a mimosa in your hand. I love Valentine's Day, especially when my first class is canceled and I can spend some extra time in bed and then have a special French Toast breakfast.

I tried to send my Valentines out early- I had them all ready to go the first few days of February, with cute heart postage stamps, and lettering with my set of rubber stamps, and I slid them into the mailbox with love for everyone in my heart.

Then, tragedy struck about three days ago.
Yes, the post office returned my Valentines, canceled the stamps, and smudged the ink. All because my cute little cards, so adorable in their small size, do not meet minimum size standards. Well, you'd think the USPS would be glad for any mail it could get. Harumph.

So, instead of just a few friends receiving Valentines, you all get one! And the internet triumphs over the postal service once again.

That's just bizarre to me. Huh. They must have been some conspicuously tiny cards!

Hi! I'm a first time reader and poster on your blog. I found you via Ravelry's 20 somethings group. I love your blog! It is just the kind of thing I have been looking for! I'll be sure to stop by often. :)

That is SO sad!

We got rid of real people so they are all automated and the machine couldn't "read" the little cards - they must have not stayed put in the machine.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Hi, Just found your blog through Fearless KAL and love it! Happy Valentine's to you too. The post office just like to be mean, I'm sure!
