The Power of a Gift

As I was perusing the inter webs, I came across this
Christmas ad from John Lewis.


Never one to be at a lost for words, after watching it, I was. 
It just resonated with me.Then it got me thinking, what gift have 
I been given that has meant the same thing to me. 
I thought and thought and thought. 

Honestly, I have been given some
 amazing (trips, a car, designer handbags, jewelry, etc)
 wonderful gifts over the years. But there is one gift that 
I was given, that kept popping in my head. It's a gift 
 that has no momentary value but is priceless to me.
And that gift is my Twin Sister, Jenn.



She is the wind beneath my wings, my partner in crime,
my best friend. In truth, I'm nothing without her.
She makes me a better, kinder person. Plus,
she puts up with all my craziness and there is
alot of that!! 

If I have learned anything in this past year, which 
has been challenging and filled with much disappointments,
is that no matter what, my twinee is always there
for me.  No matter what.

Love you Jenn, you are the light in my heart and are
by far the best gift I have even been given.




Now, tell me what has been your favorite
gift you have gotten?? Let me know, I 
love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Wish List Wednesday

I have been trying to reign in my shopping habits.
However, it is so hard for me and I have found myself
shopping.  So, for the month of November, I decided to 
not shop. AT ALL!! AT ALL!!  Not even gifts because 
I usually do one gift for you, two gifts for me thingy.

Here is what I'm wishing for!!
Just wishing not buying!!

Doormat

Leopard Penny Loafers

Faux Leather Pleaded Skirt

Snake Print Sneakers

Pink Lodge Coat

Hand Cream

Knit Tunic

Cashmere Poncho

Makeup Bag

Booties

Bow Flats

Leopard Scarf

High-Low Sweater

Belted Coat

Plaid Poncho

Now, if you are wondering what about gifts,
I have only a few people to shop for which makes 
shopping much easier. And I do have a few gifts already
so hopefully, I can do this. The last time I lasted three weeks 
which I thought was pretty good for me.
 I just need to  stay out of stores!! 

What's on your wish list??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie
