You’ve Got Mail

What is it about surprise mail that just totally makes your day? I opened the mailbox and found this little beauty:
An adorable, sweet gift from BEY reader, Heather. She even hand-stamped the paper, precious! I love that I coincidentally had my whole red “Frenchie” nails going on. {The polish is even chipped, love that too. Adds character, right?}

This sweet gal stumbled upon a vintage French Reader and thought of my recent quest to learn French. It doesn’t get much sweeter than that.
{If you are wondering… yep, that’s my hand too. I took these final pictures after a weekend of cleaning the house and my cute chipped nails turned into oh-gawd-you-gotta-do-something nails. So here you go, my normal nail state – a la naturale.}

Heather, you have a heart of pure gold! I wish you could have seen the smile on my face when I opened your package. I am a huge book lover, and a French book? I think my heart shall burst! Many, many thanks sweet lady.

    That is so sweet, and what a beautiful package. And the type-written note!

    Emily – They've always said the hardest thing about learning another language is finding the time. I am living proof of this theory. We are trying to develop a schedule for our lessons. Hopefully this will kick us into gear. I'm really excited about it, just haven't made it that far yet.

    Thanks so much for asking, I hope you are doing great!
