Christmas in February
I have, like, 30 cousins. Yet somehow Jonathan gets my name for Christmas about 28 out of 30 times (is there some rigging going on here?) This I am thrilled about because he knows how to buy a girl gifts (is this how he snagged a hot wife who looks like Jane Seymour?) Jon bought me my first perfume, Night Musk, at age 10. And Jon bought me my first serious jewelry, an 18 kt gold cross necklace, at age 11. And in the last 5 years Jon was the first to recognize how completely anything from Anthropologie will make me both short of breath and teary - in a good way. At first he supplied me with gift cards then we all got with it and discovered The Anthropologie Wish List. Which is the greatest thing ever invented and to it I owe a multitude of fantastic wedding gifts. Again Jon had my name for Christmas this year and yesterday (Anthropologie was a little backed up) I came home to find the one thing I have lamented that my kitchen still lacked - an apron. It's red, it's ruffly, it's a little dress specially for the kitchen and it absolutely made my day. Thank you dear cuz!
