Express Yourself is a weekly meme. Its goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know each other better, and even help motivate one another. What makes you, you? What inspires you to write? How’s the outside world influencing you? Whether it be a quote, a list of favorite things, a question, a song, and so on, Dani and I will find something different to post about. It'll correlate with writing, blogging, or just life in general. Then, we hope, you’ll follow suit and post, too.
The question this week - What's your most memorable holiday gift?
Update: For this meme, Dani and I didn't list our children. Or our husbands. Or even the gift of life. Those things, above all, are the best gifts ever.
But for this question, we're wanting to know what present someone gave you that you remember most.
On Christmas morning, when I was a little girl, I walked downstairs to a doll house with a red bow on top of its roof. It wasn't just any doll house. It was custom made by my parents. My dad had built the wooden house with four rooms--two on top and two on bottom, and the floors had beige shag carpet. My mom had made curtains for the windows and pasted wallpaper on the walls. I remember the "dining room" had a tiny, sparkly chandelier hanging from the ceiling, and the wallpaper matched the paper from our own dining room--muted greens and blues.
I don't know who was more excited, me or my parents. But it was perfect!
What's a holiday gift that you remember most, that was special to you and/or your loved ones?
