This year I needed a suitcase, but even when I saw the big suitcase-shaped present under the tree, I still couldn’t guess, lol! :) I am so bad at this! :)

He’d been collecting the movies as he saw them in dollar bins and wrapped them up in a bow for me to find in the suitcase. He’d also packed a new pair of Eiffel Tower PJs, French macaron PJs, and French bulldog PJs to wear while I dreamed of Paris. :)
