The Magic of Receiving a Package

 It's a happy day in our house when we receive a package. Whether it's a gift from a friend or just stuff we bought online, there's a certain buzz in the air that can only be described as intense excitement when we know something's coming.

Svetlana has an excuse. Children get hyper over the littlest of things, that's a given. But Paulie and I get as giddy as two small kids on Christmas morning in front of a pile of presents. How do you explain that?

It's especially magical for us if it's unexpected, like Santa Claus has decided to drop in early to give us a reward for being extra nice.

For instance, Clarissa, my dear friend from Japan sent us stuff for bento-making, and we were through the roof pumped! It's amazing how the simplest of things can make you happy. Yes?

When we went for a bit of online shopping at Zalora yesterday, we are practically jumping up and down whenever somebody knocks on our gate. Imagine two adults and a preschooler getting super high. Not pretty.

Is it human nature? Or is it just crazy running in the family? But no matter. We are expecting at least three more packages this month, and we feel beyond awesome!
