This page is for those of you who constantly ask me “what do you want for [holiday/special occasion x]?”. This isn’t an attempt to be greedy, but I detest answering this question because I can’t answer without feeling as though I am (being greedy). I hate asking for things. I don’t know why that is, but rather than say “I want”, I’d rather just go get it myself. For some reason making a list of my wants for other people to read just feels particularly selfish. So I’m putting this list up primarily as a way for me to keep track of the things I’m planning on picking up, and the things Sabrina and I need.
