It’s October and so I am very proud of myself for thinking about Christmas already. And even more proud for having already purchased a Christmas gift and started lists for all ya’ll that are getting a gift/gifts from us this year.
BUT, what I actually wanted to tell you is that the gift we purchased (for Miss Elsa) is a book. Signed by the author. And the author is Julie Andrews! And we got to meet her and watch her sign it and tell her our children’s names, which, by the way, she said were lovely.
I tried not to stumble over myself too much trying to be as gracious as she was for the twenty seconds we were in her presence, but I might have failed. I’m sure she didn’t notice. After all, we were just one of hundreds of families who stood in line (in the rain) for an hour so we could get glimpse of Mary Poppins/Maria Von Trapp.
Totally worth it.
(Sadly we were not allowed to take pictures and she did not personalize the signed book . . . . Still, totally worth it.)
