Spoiled!


My sweet aunt did it again. When Mia was born, I was just overwhelmed by the gifts she presented at my shower- all color coordinated with a ballerina teddy bear theme. Then again, when the twins were born, she packed a million coordinated gifts into one gift bag, including my purse that became a conversation piece for strangers at grocery stores and parks for the next few years. We just got an authentic Aunt LuJean box in the mail- I should have known, but I was completely awestruck again. I have no idea how she manages to fit so much cute stuff into one package! It takes me back to the Christmas Eves we would spend at her house- when Santa blew our minds, and the holiday had a magical quality that was never quite duplicated anywhere else. I think I'm beginning to understand what made those years so special.
Everything had it's own coordinated, hand-drawn tag, cute ribbons, "Do the Blue" theme- it was like a complete baby shower in a box!



I felt the love in every mark of her blue pen, and almost wish I could leave the cute tags and ribbons on the outfits when this kid wears them- just so everyone knows how special my aunt is. Thank you Aunt LuJ!!!
