The Mailman's Daughter

The time has come. All of our hammering and painting is over and we are ready to unveil the newest member of the Alice and Jay family. The Mailman's Daughter will have it's grand opening on Friday, October 26th. I can hardly wait and yet it will be a bittersweet day for me.

Meet the mailman. His name was Spence Hallman and he was the greatest daddy that a daughter could ever have.

He was the best "dada" that two granddaughters could ever have.

He was simply the best. He was kind and gentle. He never met a stranger. He was the definition of humility. He was a simple man who filled my childhood with magic and laughter and all things wondrous and wonderful.

I had to let my daddy go this year(though I know it is temporary and we will meet again). It is the hardest thing I have ever had to do.

Not long after, I had the opportunity to open a store in the post office where he worked for 45 years. How could I pass it up? It is in a very small town with very few stores but it felt right. It felt like a chance to honor my Father.

Now, after a small remodel job, we are ready to open our doors. It will be a learning experience for us. We hope to create a another quaint shop in another small town that is filled with giggles and smiles, Magic and marvels, and of course our signature flamingoes and flying carpets.

If you are traveling on hwy 84 near Boston,Ga. We hope you can stop by and say hello. Be sure and plan your stop around lunch time. The Boston Cafe has the best lunch specials around! We hope to see you soon!

Pinterest pretending!

Does anybody else out there spend hours(way too many hours) on pinterest , pinning all of those wonderful uplifting quotes that mAke you feel so good about the person that you are. Look back at that board and think,"yep, I have got it going on." My pinterest house is spotless and my wardrobe is to die for. Cook? I am an awesome recipe collector ;just look at my scrumpdillyishus board. Oh, for those precious moments spent on an iPad, I am actually as good as mrs. Cleaver and Aunt Bea rolled into one...until my feet hit the dirty floor the next morning. Here is the way it went down today. We are still cleaning that cursed floor in our new building! We went to lowes to get trash bags cause we have got lots of trash! Got back and opened the sealed box of bags. Look at this!

Someone had opened the box from the bottom, taken the bags out and then stuffed it full of heavy cards and paper to make it weigh more. Then they hot glued the bottom back and returned it. Who in the Sam hill thought of this! What has happened to honesty and integrity? Did they actually feel good about doing this?

I did not feel like this...

Or this...

Nope. Instead I felt like this...


Yep! That's what I love about pinterest. You can wrap those boards up with pretty pink ribbons and the loveliest of thoughts but on those special days when the rubber hits the road...we all need a good bit**ing board.

Hit that pretty little red P tonight and join me in my favorite wonderland!

Letting go

My daughter introduced me to this lovely song. Listen to the lyrics if you have time today. They are beautiful. They sing sweet notes to my ears in this season of sadness.
