The home we were in before this one had a mail slot in the front door and I came to love it.
Rain? Snow? Bad hair day? No problem. The mail dropped right into my living room.
When we moved into our current home, one of the first things we did was carve a mail slot in our front door.
Still love it.
But there is one drawback. More than one friend has jumped out of her seat when the mail suddenly came crashing into the house, hitting the floor with a loud thud.
(I try not to giggle too hard.)
