Holiday Wish List: The Etsy EditionFriday, November 30, 2012
My family members and I do this thing every year where we ask each other for a Christmas list so that we know what to get each other. I know it totally devoids the surprise factor in gift giving, but hey, at least you know you'll get something you like, right? That's our theory and it's worked really well every year. And every year I never have a problem coming up with a list of things that I'd love to find under the Christmas tree. But this year, I've had the hardest time coming up with my Christmas list. I've scoured so many websites and catalogs and magazines that you'd think I'd have at least one thing I'm dying to have. But nope. Not one single thing am I so totally and utterly in love with that I must have it. Strange, no? Well, my husband best put it to me the other day saying that it's a great situation to be in because it means that I have everything that I want. And when he said this to me, it was like a lightbulb went off in my head. He was right. Shh, don't tell him I said that or else he'll start quoting me. I do have everything that I want. I have a roof over my head, my health, my loving husband & family, and I have the most amazing and precious gift of all, my darling daughter. There really isn't anything else that I could ask for, but since I must come up with a Christmas list for my family (such a 1st world problem, right?), here are some things that definitely caught my eye on Etsy (gosh, I love that site!).
Happy Friday everyone!
