Ever since my dad taught me the combination to our mail box, I have absolutely loved checking the mail! Not that I ever really got anything, but there was just something exciting about knowing that I could get something.
Now that I'm married and have my own mailbox (okay, our own mailbox), I take that to mean there are even greater chances that I'll have mail. Granted, the only times I ever get anything are around my birthday and Christmas. Oh, and of course, when I make an order online.
Nevertheless, I make it a point to check the mail daily. My Airman teases me endlessly about my mail obsession. I tell him it's not an obsession -- no, really. I could stop any time I wanted to... it's just that, well, I don't want to. LOL ;o)
The only person I know who loves going to the post office as much as I do is my best friend, Laura. Whenever we would spend the day together, it was a given that we would check the mail... sometimes even twice in one afternoon! (But, seriously, we're not addicted or anything!) ;o) LOL
So on my daily mail check, I was delighted to find a letter from my man. :o) When climbing Mt. Fuji, hikers are given the opportunity to purchase post cards and have them mailed directly from the mountain. I knew that already, but what I didn't know was that he bought a post card and had it mailed home for me.
I have climbed all the way to the top of Mt. Fuji
just so I could send this and say this one thing to you...
I love you.
*sigh* I love my husband. Isn't he a sweetie? :o)
