So a while ago, I had ordered myself a wooden magic wand from Heartwood Wands. I had contacted them directly because the kind of wand I wanted was sold out at that time, so they promised to make me a similar wand (their wands are all unique). I paid, was happy, got the delivery notification not soon afterwards, and then waited.
I knew it could take a while to arrive since shipping from the US to Germany can take ages, but at some point, life and everything had pushed the thoughts of my magic wand to the back of my mind. So imagine my surprise when the mailman handed a long-ish package with customs sticker to me today.
Once it dawned on me what that had to be, though, my excitement grew. And yes, I may have squeeked a little (okay, a lot) while opening it. MY WAND IS BREATHTAKING!
(Just ignore the chaos on the table behind me, that’s my Latin stuff, mostly.)
