My Little Trinkets Confession
I LOVE it when BF brings me back little trinkets from his travels 😀
BF travels a lot for business, and whenever he comes back from another city or country, he’s gotten into the habit of bringing me back a stuffed animal or other little trinket from that place.
It started with the Paddington Bear from London, England. Then, a little Koala bear from Sydney, Australia. Then MukMuk, the marmot from the 2010 Vancouver Olympic games. And the latest, a little Havana flip flop magnet and Corporal Flapjack Jr. when he came back from Brasil.
I know. I know. So NOT minimalism.
It’s not so much that I really like the gifts, I just feel super special – it’s almost like “proof” that he was thinking of me. Silly, right? Right? !
The minimalist part of me needs to realize that this is silly, and that I am just piling up “stuff” for a sentimental reason.
I’m kinda at a loss of what to do about this dilemma – I feel so special when I get a little gift 😛
Maybe I could suggest to BF to bring me back a postcard with a little message. I love postcards 🙂
I guess what I should be focusing on is this post isn’t the trinkets. But about when I look forward to each time with BF coming. And the best part about BF coming home – is BF 🙂
When I think about it like that, I don’t really have a need for trinkets!
