Since I was a kid I really wanted an American Girl doll…for those who don’t know they are insanely expensive dolls for girls that are coupled with books about the dolls lives.
I always wanted Kit a girl from the 1930’s struggling to live through the depression. She wanted to be a writer and you could even get her a little type writer!
My parents didn’t get me one because they were (and still are) insanely expensive. INSTEAD my parents got me the book series about Kit which I read over and over.
This year, at the age of almost 21, my fiancee got me Kit for Christmas. As a I pulled the wrapping paper off the box and saw her face staring at me I started to cry.
It’s more than just getting the doll. He remember me mentioning I wanted the doll, he understood how much it meant to me, he invested the money in buying me one. I’m an adult, we’re planning a wedding, and he still got me a doll and is encouraging and tolerating me buying clothes and being a little eccentric about the doll.
So, for a belated Christmas, I got Kit Kittredge’s American Girl doll. This is a huge deal. I’ve wanted her since I was 8 or 9 (in my 20s now), and now she’s sitting in my arms. She came with Meet Kit, so I read that last night. And I realized something: that’s one of my original OTPs: Kit and Stirling. I call is Kirling.
Congratulations to Gaz and Kit for their marriage! The first married same sex, fiancé visa, Italian American couple! After so many struggles and obstacles, they can finally live together! So super happy for them :‘3
