Spoiler Alert: I cried. (cc @ChrisK @applesarahgate)
  1. My roommate (aka mother) said: "BLAIRE YOU GOT A PACKAGE FROM SARAH WHO IS THAT I THINK ITS A BOOK."

    LO AND BEHOLD IT WAS FROM MY SECRET SANTA!
  2. Tired opening with my teeth. Unsuccessful. Too lazy to get scissors so I used a hanger.

  3. It was prepared so neatly and beautifully AND my name was written with the -E at the end!

    1. I actually don't watch Parks & Rec but it'll be feat. on my Christmas Break to do list! (Yes, I live under a rock bc I haven't seen it, I know) 2. I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK!! Big fan of personal nonfiction, another thing added to the list mentioned above! 3. THANK YOU FOR THINKING OF RAMAPO!!!!! (This is where I cried) It's honestly my favorite place in the whole world and so special to me. I will be there this summer so yes, let's please meet up! (Side note: Do you go to Bard?)
  5. Drew, in all her flower-power-jumping-mid-air glory!

  6. I just loved this quote on the back of the book, similar to an inspirational lower back tattoo because I wasn't expecting it but much cooler.

  7. @applesarahgate, you are the best and I feel like we've bonded over this in a weird Christmas magic way!!
    Also, thank you for liking all my lists, very sly how you snuck your way into my life!!
  8. Also - today was one of those days where something minimal but stressful knocks you off your game. This totally changed my evening so thank you so much Sarah for your kindness and generosity to find two things that would fit me!
  9. s/o to @ChrisK for giving me an amazing Secret Santa and organizing this whole shindig!
