This is a gorgeously handmade Vagabond travel guitar. It was my super secret Santa gift for Ian and myself this year -- a final splurge before I adopt the pocketbook of a pauper in January. It was totally worth the price. The sound is beautiful, and authentically that of a guitar (unlike many travel guitars), and the craftsmanship is admirable. We are excited to have this to take with us on roadtrips and campouts.
I was also very pleased to receive several books that I will need in law school, or that are relevant to my focus on intellectual property, public domain, fair use, and the arts.
Ian gave me a digital picture frame, which is something I've desired for quite awhile. It's nice to have your photos cycle through next to you while you work. Every now and then a picture catches your eye that you wouldn't have otherwise considered noteworthy. It keeps memories alive.
We also received a really nice microwave to replace our old one, which really wasn't very old -- less than three years -- but it kept blowing fuses. Microwave burritos shall be mine again! (Bwahahahaha!)
See that silvery thing to the left of the microwave? That's a burr grinder -- part of my coffee-themed gifts from Ian (he knows me well). I had heard that burr grinders were superior to chopping grinders for creating the best flavor from your beans, and now after brewing several pots using my burr-ground beans, I have to concur.
To compliment my new burr grinder, I also received this coffee maker complete with water filtration system.
The cool thing about this unit is that I can set a timer so my coffee automatically brews in the morning. How slick is that? I have also discovered that condensed milk makes an excellent creamer for coffee. Now the power of the perfect cup of coffee is in my hands!
So I feel pleased and grateful and very fortunate this holiday season. I hope you all had a happy holiday season as well.
