Last nights episode of Signed, Sealed, Delivered was absolutely the cutest. I was given the amazing opportunity to preview last nights episode thanks to FlyByPromotions and I have to say even though it was my first time watching the show I really loved it. Signed, Sealed, Delivered follows the story and the lives of four postal officers Oliver, Shane, Rita and Norman who make it their mission to deliver undeliverable mails.
Their new challenge starts when Kimmy Cooper a post officer who also happens to be one of the participants in the Miss Special Delivery Pageant brings them this letter written by a young Ellie to Mrs. Richards. The letter was written to a Mrs. Richards on her wedding day by 7yr old Ellie to just congratulate and praise her on getting married and also telling her how beautiful and perfect she looked on her wedding day. The team of postal detectives got investigating and after searching and following a bunch of leads they ended up at this beautiful flower shop where Ellie and Bobbie worked. It was soon discovered that Ellie wrote the letter to her future self describing her perfect wedding day to Bobbie Richards. What broke my heart is that Ellie and Bobbie were so in love but Ellie’s parents wouldn’t let them married because they felt that they weren’t ready for marriage 😦 Ellie had a spunk and determination that I loved. I loved how that letter was a reminder and kick she needed to go after what she wanted. Ellie decided to just throw caution to the wind and get that marriage license to marry Bobbie to show her parents that she and Bobbie was serious about getting married. Thank God after a lot of convincing, her parents finally came around and Ellie was given her perfect wedding with the lights, flowers and stars just like her parents’ wedding.
Another great message this episode had was the message of staying true to thine own self, standing firm and not letting anyone bully or intimidate you into not going after the things you want. Rita who was a very shy woman decided to enter the Miss Special Delivery Pageant and even though she was faced with so many obstacles from Kimmy and her new supervisor she rose above it all. I loved that even after Shane gave her a stunning makeover and some cool pageant tips she decided to just revert to her original everyday look and self because she believed “If they see the new me, they won’t see the real me.” In the end she conquered it all and even if they didn’t really show it in the episode she won. She didn’t let the pressure from her competition squash her, instead she came out on top stronger than ever. I was really surprised by this show. I only Hallmark for their movies but this show definitely intrigued me. I love how they make the impossible possible in this show. It really opens your mind and gets you thinking about areas in your life where you need to let go of the norm and be you. This show is definitely worth watching and even though I started from episode 6 I am definitely going to be starting this series from the beginning 🙂 Signed, Sealed, Delivered shows on Sunday nights on the Hallmark Channel @8pm on Sunday nights xx<3
