I adore my fiancé, but he is not, shall we say, excellent with gifts or gift-giving occasions or any of those sorts of nice tangible romantic gestures.  I mean, he does the important things, like helping with housework and packing my lunch when I have to be out the door at 5 AM and catching the centipedes that are too high up for me to reach... But not, you know, bringing home flowers or getting the perfect gift for Christmas or our anniversary.

So you can imagine my surprise when he told me there was a package coming in the mail and gave me many admonishments not to peek at it or open it if it arrived when I was home alone!  And my even greater surprise when the contents of the mysterious package were revealed... a fairytale castle print skirt from Pinup Girl Clothing!  Apparently Doug originally went looking for one of the Mary Blair skirts which I would dearly love to have and found that they were already sold out in my size, so he went for the castle print as a runner-up option.
