one of my favorite things in the world is to give or receive meaningful, sentimental gifts.
i love it.
it took me a while to realize it, but it really is my love language.
i don't mean huge expensive gifts,
i mean the thoughtful ones.
the gifts you get where you know your mom was paying attention to when you lingered next to those flats 6 months ago
or the ones where your husband noticed your lusting after a peter pan collared shirt
or when your sister passed something in the aisle
and just KNEW you had to have it
it's totally you.
i just live for that look in the eyes of the person tearing off the wrapping from your gift.
the excitement and surprise. they never expected it. they never knew they couldn't live without it.
this year I've been particularly spoiled.
i'm one lucky girl!
