It’s a gorgeous fleece turtleneck with “heat tech” technology and I can’t even tell you how delicious it feels just wearing it around my apartment. Here I am wearing it after I opened the box; please excuse the idiot grin and helmet hair (I had just gotten back from the barn):
(Boyfriend, as he’s taking the picture: “Don’t you want to take the tags off?” Me: “No, I’m preserving the just-out-of-the-box feel.” Him: “Ummm…ok. Sure.”)
Miraculously, it also fits better than some clothing my mother has bought for me, and she’s known me for 30+ years now. I can’t wait to wear it to my lesson on Monday. This is especially timely, since, well, take a look at the weather prediction at the barn for Monday:
The package had a real name but not a blog address on it, so I can give a shout-out to Elena but I don’t know where she blogs! Mystery Elena, if you’re reading this, could you comment so I can give you the credit you well deserve.
ETA: Tracy tells me that Elena blogs at Out of the Box; go and read about her eventing adventures. I’ll be over here on the other coast, jealous of her warm Southern California temperatures. Thank you again, Elena!
I ordered my gift for my recipient a few days ago and it has already shipped; I keep clicking anxiously on the tracking to see when it will get there. Hope you enjoy it, Mystery Recipient!
