Today I am dying of impatience to get to open a small box that appeared in the mail today. From Tiffany’s. THE Tiffany’s. I don’t know what it is about the little blue box that is oh-so-enticing. I know it’s from Elliott, an anniversary gift, but I don’t know WHAT it is. Is it something from my wish list there, or an entirely different something that struck his fancy?

Because we’re swamped with family things and getting work ready for a 10 day absence and many kid birthdays, we don’t get to go have dinner together until Thursday night. I have to wait TWO MORE DAYS. Of course so does he, because there is a pretty red box tied with ivory ribbon that is his gift.
