I have the worst luck with mail. Yes, I have another story and this time, it’s even more of a shocker. Like, I cannot believe this even happened.

My friend, Kristan, and many of you know her as the talented Cookbook Queen, was selling a bunch of baby girl clothes since Lucy has grown out of them, with some that she’s never even worn! She said that there was probably $500 worth of clothes but selling them to me for way less. I was sold. One of my friends is having a baby girl in October and her style is the same as how Kristan dressed Lucy. Kristan shipped this 17 pound box of baby clothes to me two Friday’s ago. This past Wednesday, I started to wonder where it was since she didn’t live that far from me. I didn’t want it to seem like I didn’t trust Kristan so I gave it a couple more days before asking Kristan for the tracking number. On Friday, I asked Kristan the tracking number and she said she was surprised I hadn’t gotten it yet. I typed in the tracking number into UPS and lo-and-behold, it said it was delivered on Tuesday and it was left in front of the garage (where our packages are usually left). Well, obviously we didn’t get it and we’re not that blind – we would’ve seen a big box! Then it hit me. Guess what else comes on Tuesdays and guess what is also by our garage on Tuesdays? TRASH. YUP, THE TRASH PEOPLE TOOK THE 17 POUND BOX AND TRASHED IT THINKING IT WAS TRASH.
