SO excited. I love the holidays. I love the cold weather so I can get snuggly in my sweaters and Uggs, I love the new red nose I put on my car, I love the lights on trees and the houses all decorated and sparkly... and I love wishlists!
This is one of the few times of the year when I don't feel guilty for wanting things beyond my needs. Those little things I find while browsing for other people's presents that I would love to have but just aren't necessary. Like another camera lens. Or more sweaters or jewelry!
While going through the gift guide on Etsy, I saw this cape
How gorgeous is that? The seller, Artlab, also has a ton of really cool scarves. Very haute. I especially love this scarf:
But I digress. Each year, it seems shopping for people I love gets harder and harder. The more we go through life, the more stuff we accumulate and at some point we start to need or even want less and less. I recall asking for baking equpment for Christmas. Last year I got a food processor and a tart pan, both of which I've put to good use.
This year, I don't know what I want. Yoga gear? Like tops or shorts maybe? I could ALWAYS use gift cards.
Regardless of what I do get, this entire year has been a pretty good present. Sappy no? Anyway, it's been a good year. 2009 was enjoyable, it's been a year of positive changes like I wanted, and it's setting the stage for a great 2010.
I hope you all enjoy the upcoming festivities, whichever faith you hold. And I hope you get everything you want this year too!
