Today was a stressful day, and lots of little things hit all at once at the very end to leave me in a seriously grumpy mood. And then I got home, opened my mail box and found a small Priority Mail envelope…with the return address listed as “U.S. Government Official Mail.”
Suddenly, I was a lot happier–because my brand new, lovely passport has arrived! Even more awesome is that it took just two and half weeks, including shipping both ways. That’s super unexpected because I recently read in Condé Nast Traveler that the State Department expects a massive surge in passport applications and renewals in 2016, and to apply early because there will most likely be delays in processing. Welp, that wasn’t the case for me!
