That said, all this do-goodery doesn't actually keep me from desiring (nay, coveting) various beautiful things. So yes, there are a few things that I would like for Christmas, if peace and an end to world hunger aren't an option.
I'm a blogger, after all. I have wishes.
I won't reveal what I chose here. For that, you'll have to check out the series. But in the meantime, I will reveal a few other materialistic wishes. Stuff I sorta want. It is the holiday season, after all. What would Christmas be without a little old-fashioned commercialism?
Jen's wee wish list, 2011:
1. A subscription to Anthology Magazine.
2. A Wacom tablet .
3. A Digital SLR camera. Shown is the Canon Rebel.
Nate and I have agreed not to do any real presents for each other this year, just like last. Instead of spending money on objects, we try to invest in experiences. Last year, it was a trip to Cuba. This year... who knows? I'm sure none of the things shown above will actually make their way into my stocking this year, but I'm okay with that. It's fun to dream. Probably more fun than actually owning.
The truth is, Nate and I want for nothing. We already have everything we need, and access to nearly everything we could conceivably want. So I'd say we're pretty lucky.
Happy holidays, everybody. Don't forget to check out What's Up Whimsy tomorrow to see my pick on the Blogger Wish List. It's very cute and very affordable. It's also from an Etsy artist. I think you'll approve.
