wwl: Nothing.

Well you guys. For the first Wednesday in probably my entire life, I am not wishing for anything. Literally, NOTHING. Christmas came early to our little San Francisco apartment, and I still don't believe it. 

I got home pretty late on Monday [it was the night before Rue came out, after all]. Tim asked if I wanted a glass of wine, and led me to the dining room. There was a cardboard box that he'd painted red and blue, tied up in bright red ribbon, and in one of his signature fonts it said Merry X-Mas. I opened it, and immediately burst into tears.

True story. 
If you look at Rue's "Meet the Team" page [pg. 10], you'll see the number one item on my wish list this year was a DSLR... a question I'd answered about 3 hours earlier. I have wanted a new camera since the moment I started this blog. In fact, image quality is the reason I rarely post recipes, and why I haven't given an apartment tour of our "new" place.

When I say I "burst into tears," that is not a metaphor. That means I actually cried because I was so overcome with gratitude. So, I couldn't bring myself to round up my favorite shoes or t-shirts today. All of my wishes for a long, long time have been completely used up. 

In the coming weeks, I'll finally share a tour of our home, start posting my favorite recipes , and include more outfits as well. I can't wait to see where this little blog goes now!
