For the past month, we have had our mailbox leaning up against a tree. Our mail man probably thinks we are so lazy and/or hates us. The bottom was almost completely rusted out and the door barely opened, so we bought a replacement in mid – November. Then came Thanksgiving, and we forgot about the mailbox project. Then came December and it stayed on the back burner behind all of the holiday decorating, shopping, wrapping, etc. Now that the holidays are over and since Joshua’s company shuts down for the week between Christmas and New Year, we finally got the gorgeous replacement mailbox installed!! (I say we, but Josh did all of the work.)
I got home from work last night and was jumping up and down in the driveway. I have officially become a lame homeowner who gets excited about a mailbox! But can’t you just see a sweet little flower bed or plants surrounding it? And can’t you imagine our mail man starting to love us, even though Tucker sometimes barks at him? I can, yall. I can.
