The funny thing about wishes is that sometimes you don’t even realize what they are until they come true. Every year we pick names for Christmas in my family. The plan is that everyone will buy one "big" gift for one person and little stocking gifts for everyone else. That’s how it should go down, but it rarely does. What actually happens is that everyone is much too extravagant and nothing is small enough to fit into any stocking. This year was no exception. Thought I’d share a few of my wonderful new belongings, all of which I absolutely had to have, I just didn’t know it until they were mine.
