We got our first wedding gift in the mail tonight!
Right around dinnertime there was a knock at the door, and to our surprise, a giant Target box lay at our doorstep. We opened the box and there was what seriously looked like a big, red Santa bag! And inside was a TOASTER OVEN!!! I have never been so excited about a kitchen appliance before. I mean, I knew we would be getting gifts for our wedding, but it was a kind of profound enlightenment to actually receive one. Like "Hey, it worked. We registered for stuff, and now people are getting us stuff!! This is AWESOME!" It's also a nice thought to know that people actually care that we are getting married and want to send us something nice.
It was too perfect. Out of everything that we registered for, Jacob was the most enthusiastic about that toaster oven. He REALLY wanted it. So serendipitous that it was the first present we got!
