Oh, the presents are piling up under the tree, the shortbread cookies are baked, and now instead of weeks, Christmas is just days, away.
I did my shopping online which means exciting marches through the snow to the mail box and the anticipation of the courier truck in the drive.
But the danger of online ordering is diversionary window shopping. And thus, a little package arrived the other day from TheRealReal.
I’ve been watching this gorgeous diamond bracelet for weeks, hoping it would go on sale. And finally, it did.
There is something rather lovely about a pre-Christmas gift. It becomes part of the delightful lead up to Christmas rather than the chaotic aftermath. Yes, it could have been wrapped, but I’m thrilled to be wearing it and watching it twinkling as I add another ornament or cut out gingerbread.
Perhaps a pre-Christmas present will become a new tradition.
