We're thankful for our Mailman, Russell!

As a small business owner, I started A Little Bundle with simply an idea I believed in and the drive and confidence to execute it. I certainly did not make it to this point without the support of my friends, family and amazing people that I've chosen to surround myself with at work and at home. 

It takes a lot of good people to make a dream come true. My business model relies heavily on shipping, and I am so grateful for my USPS mailman, Russell. He is the most kind and understanding mailman. When we ask him how his day is, he always says, "no complaints." Russell starts his day at 7am and sometimes does not end until 8pm. He really puts our complaints into perspective.

A hilarious story about Russell is that for almost 8 months, I thought his name was Ben. When he first introduced himself, I somehow misheard that his name was Ben. So every time he came by, I'd say, "HEY BEN! HOW ARE YOU DOING, BEN?!", and he'd never correct me because he thought I was say, "HEY MAN! HOW ARE YOU DOING, MAN!" It wasn't until he was on vacation for a week that I asked where Ben was, and his co-worker shared that his name was actually Russell! haha!

Well here's our reliable mailman, Russell!

And he's always loading up his truck with all our bundles to ship them to your house!
