In My House

The Extra Stocking

My husband and I received these beautiful monogrammed stockings for a wedding gift. When our daughter was born, I ordered a matching one with her initial from Bed Bath & Beyond.


When I opened the package, I found the company had shipped me two stockings monogrammed with the letter A. While ethically, I probably should have contacted Bed Bath & Beyond and arranged to return the stocking, I felt it was a sign. I believed this stocking was intended for someone I haven’t yet met.


Now, the two A stockings hang next to each other. One for our dear girl, and one for her baby sister.


They make me smile. Merry Christmas to all of you. Make time to enjoy the season.
