    imagine, if you will, Christmas Eve 2003
    but at my grandparents' house, not your house
  2. •
    I was just about to turn 12, and my brother was almost 10
    we're both February babies 💘
  3. •
    we were all at my grandparents' for Christmas Eve dinner
  4. •
    and my parents/grandparents said we could each open one present that night
  5. •
    so they handed us each these fairly large, but very thin gifts
  6. •
    we opened them at the same time, and saw that they were tropical-themed calendars
    we were like
  7. •
    but on the front, there was a note!
  8. •
    it read: dear Micaela, you can use this calendar to count down the days until we go to Hawaii!
  9. •
    and then we went apeshit
  10. •
    we ran circles around the house for probably 20 minutes
    shrieking the entire time
  11. •
    it was hands-down the best gift and gift-presentation I have ever received
  12. •
    that was a really great night
    (and a really great trip!)
