Not knowing anyone from Berkeley, not recognizing the handwriting and it no longer being Valentine's Day, I was somewhat hesitant tearing into the package. Seeing as the envelope was somewhat lumpy, my guess was leaning towards some sort of cheap (yet intriguing) gimmick from a jeweler. Much to my delight, inside I found the loveliest wax envelope and seal:
But, I still had no clue as to who the sender was- which meant I had to carefully break the seal to get some answers. As gently as I could I pried the seal loose and shook out...
the teeniest, tiniest, fragile card I had ever received!
Unfolding the magnifier, I squinted my left eye and started reading the minuscule print. In a surprisingly long (and sweet) paragraph I slowly came to find out that Miss Allison Micus was wishing Fran & I a happy valentine/lupercalia day! Hands down, best Valentine's day gift. Ever. The opening of envelope after envelope was definitely a highlight. As well as the novelty of magnifying a card (sneak peek into my geriatric future?) but overall my favorite part was the miniature seal on the mini envelope:
Thank you Alli!
